Promotional Information

A case-study in modelling the social make-up of an early Christian community.


"This book represents a considerable advance over current studies on Philippi, increasing our understanding of the city, its church, and the importance of Paul's letter to them...In this study Oakes brings new sophistication to the context of Paul's letters to the Philippians...Thus his project is ground-breaking and a welcome addition to the scholarship on Philippians. This study is also a significant advance over previous attempts by Biblical scholars to study the Greco-Roman context of early Christianity by using sociological models...Okeas, I believe, rightly focuses on concrete life situations rather than doctrinal issues when exploring the theme of suffering in Philippians, and he spells out in detail the economic implications of conversion...I must reiterate the importance of this work in offering a detailed and thoughtout model of Philippi and the Philippian Christian community." BMCR 2001 12.02 "Deserves attention from Pauline scholars and students." Religious Studies Review "Should be consulted by all who desire an authoritative account of what it must have been like to be a Christian in first-century Philippi." Journal of Religion "The interpretation of the political connotations of the language is convincing." The Catholic Biblical Quarterly
