Summary and Info
Luke Timothy Johnson does it again. This most creative and learned interpreter of New Testament and early church history challenges his readers to use four new interpretive categories to explore Jewish, Christian, and Gentile religion. Scales fall from readers' eyes as they see familiar texts in exciting and brilliant new ways. For example, why should it be surprising that new converts in Galatia wanted to add circumcision to baptism? After all, the religious practices with which they were familiar invited deeper levels of initiation.
