This volume, edited by John T. Fitzgerald, Thomas H. Olbricht, and L. Michael White, contains twenty-eight essays honoring Abraham J. Malherbe, whose work has been especially influential in exploring modes of cultural interaction between early Jews and Christians and their Greco-Roman neighbors. Following an introductory essay on the problems inherent to such comparative studies in the history of New Testament scholarship, the essays are grouped into five topic areas: Graphos (semantics and writing), Ethos (ethics and moral characterization), Logos (rhetoric and literary expression), Ethnos (self-definition and acculturation), and Nomos (law and normative values). Some key examples are studies dealing with The Greek Idea of "divine nature" and its relation to the "divine man" tradition; the compilation of letters in Cicero's collection; radical altruism in Paul; Greek ideas of concord and cosmic harmony in 1 Clement; the rhetorical use of friendship motifs in Galatians in comparison with Second Sophistic orators; and wills and testaments in Greco-Roman perspective.CONTENTSPreface-Thomas H.
