Christianity in the Making: Volume 3: Neither Jew nor Greek: A Contested Identity
This book brings James Dunn’s magisterial Christianity in the Making trilogy to a close. Neither Jew nor Greek covers the period following the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 c.e. through the second century. Dunn examines in depth the major factors that shaped first-generation Christianity and beyond, exploring the parting of the ways between Christianity and Judaism, the Hellenization of Christianity, and responses to Gnosticism. Comprehensively covering an important, complex era in early Christianity that is often overlooked, this volume is a landmark contribution to the field.
