His essays illustrate recent changes in our thinking about the early Christian movement and pose provocative questions regarding the history of this period.

Meeks explores a range of topics, from the figure of the androgyne in antiquity to the timeless matter of Gods reliability, from Pauls ethical rhetoric to New Testament pictures of Christianitys separation from Jewish communities. Meekss introduction offers a retrospective on New Testament studies of the past 30 years and explains the intersection of these studies with a variety of exploratory and revisionist movements in the humanities, embracing social theory, history, anthropology and literature.

In an epilogue the author reflects on future directions for New Testament scholarship.
