In recent years, the focus on early Christology has been "historical"--the reality of the historical Jesus--without close reference to developments in theological ideas in Jewish and early Christian thought which formed the essential background to the birth of Christianity. This book centers on these theological developments, but with reference to all the modern research into the wider historical context. The studies in this volume are representative of the different ways of conceiving early Christian monotheism today, asking whether monotheism is a conceptually useful category, or to be applied cautiously and with nuance, or to be questioned in favor of different approaches to understanding the origins of Jewish and Christian beliefs and worship.

Review International Review of Biblical Studies, vol 51, 2004/05
'...this rich collection of essays is not just important for New Testament exegesis and theoology but also offers a lot of impulses for systematic theology.' Volume 116, Number 3--Sanford Lakoff "Expository Times "
