Reviews

'This book makes a major contribution to the currently fruitful sociological approach to early Christian writings and it should be noted carefully by teachers and students of the New Testament.'--Prof. Leslie Houlden, Theological Book Review

'... highly informative and full of interest.'--Margaret E. Thrall, Expository Times

'... thorough, focused and has an excellent bibliography.'--John C. Hurd, Trinity College Toronto, Journal of Biblical Literature

'Horrell's coverage of the secondary literature is excellent, and his exegesis from a sociological standpoint is consistently fair and balanced. This book is an indispensable resource for any serious student of the Corinthian correspondence.'--Nigel M. Watson, Australian Biblical Review

'It is a pleasure to find a study which is theoretically sophisticated and careful in its judgements. David Horrell's revised doctoral thesis could serve as a model to all who find themselves attracted by these new perspectives in biblical study.'--Gregory W. Dawes, University of Otago, New Zealand. Pacifica

'I would commend this book to upper level college students. ... They will discover that this line of approach to Paul is fertile, not futile.'--Ben Witherington III, Themelios

"Provides insight for those interested in the social history of the Corinthian community and raises important issues for the wider application of sociological approaches to understanding early Christianity."--Religious Studies Review, July 2001
