Chapter Summary

The task of writing a history of early Christianity and its literature which does justice to Christianity's participation in the world in which it existed is a daunting one. The concern for particularity which one expects is lacking in the section on the philosophical marketplace, taken to be the social setting in which Christians like Paul preached. Helmut Koester is at his most brilliant when sketching the development of early Christianity. After twenty-five years of provocative articles from his pen, we now have a comprehensive picture of how he understands that development to have taken place.
