Steve Moyise (PhD, University of Birmingham) is professor of New Testament at the University of Chichester in Chichester, England. He is the author of Paul and Scripture and Jesus and Scripture. His other books include The Old Testament in the Book of Revelation, The Old Testament in the New, and Evoking Scripture: Seeing the Old Testament in the New.
Pragmatically adapting his approach to the way each author uses Scripture, Moyise has produced a valuable and nuanced study of both the citations and the allusions found in these writings. He brings together the results of earlier studies and adds to them his own insightful reflections and conservative judgments. Always careful but never dull, Moyise has provided us with a reliable guide to this complex topic.

Steve Moyise provides the most thorough, judicious, and sophisticated assessment of how the New Testament authors understood Scripture and adapted it to shape identity and belief. While some scriptural texts exercised nearly universal influence, Moyise also demonstrates the distinctive and often innovative appropriations of Scripture we encounter in Acts, 1 Peter, Jude and 2 Peter, James, Hebrews, Revelation, and the Johannine Epistles.
