Chapter Summary

This front matter section of the book Light from the Gentiles: Hellenistic Philosophy and Early Christianity contains the table of contents, location of original publications, editor's foreword, list of abbreviations, and notes to readers. The book reflects the author's interest in the interface between early Christianity and ancient philosophy particularly that between Paul and his heirs and their cultural environment. Rather than viewing the Graeco-Roman world as the "background" against which early Christian texts should be read, Abraham J. Malherbe saw the ancient Mediterranean world as a rich ecology of diverse intellectual traditions that interacted within specific social contexts.

Keywords: Abraham J. Malherbe; early Christianity; hellenistic philosophy
