Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of the book, which presents a study on Robert McQueen Grant's literary works of early Christianity. Grant knew much of early Christianity. For reasons of training and inclination, Grant's examination of literary potsherds has kept his assertions modest and his narrative spare. To explore the transmission of Christianity to the borders of the empire, Grant's scholarship has remained strongly within the Graeco-Roman tradition. Grant has continued, as a careful detective and historian, to interpret the Latin and Greek sources for early Christian history with a depth and skill unparalleled in the United States.

Keywords: early Christianity; New Testament; Robert McQueen Grant's scholarship
