"This volume . . . brings together for the first time numerous publications that range across the New Testament canon and encompass a variety of interpretive forms, from thematic essay to commentary, from close exegesis to homily. The volume also presents two major essays and two homilies that have not previously appeared in print. All these studies are distinguished by Meyer's characteristic attention to detail, precision in argument, and elegant prose. Readers encounter on every page perceptive historical and literary analysis and deep theological wisdom from the pen of a master exegete." The Editors, The New Testament Library
