    while this is a helpful book to learn about aspects of Hellenized philosophy/religion before and around the time of the new testament, and while it is a helpful study to begin thinking about how that does or does not relate to aspects of the Christian gospel as found in the new testament, the author may be trying too hard to insulate the Gospel from affinities with some of the philosophical/religious currents that were in the air in its day. Nash presents a very conservative take on the subject, and this book is worth a good read, but this should not be the only perspective one gets in trying to come to a conclusion on this subject.
