Publisher's Description

This volume places the New Testament letters squarely in the middle of all the important letter corpora of antiquity. Chapters cover the basic letter formula, papyrus and postal delivery, non-literary and diplomatic correspondence, Greek and Latin literary letters, epistolary theory, letters in early Judaism, and all the letters of the New Testament. Part I of each chapter surveys each corpus, followed by detailed exegetical examples in Part II. Comprehensive bibliographies and 54 exercises with answers suit this guide to student and scholar alike.

Editorial Reviews

Ancient Letters and the New Testament is a remarkable achievement and extremely informative. Klauck's grasp of the primary texts and command of the subject matter can hardly be overstated. He has provided readers with an immensely useful textbook with hermeneutical and exegetical implications.
