Product Description

Do the New Testament epistles follow conventional forms? Stowers analyzed thousands of ancient letters, both formal and personal, and constructed useful classifications based on the letters' social functions. He quotes hundred of letters, shows how to ''read'' them, and illuminates the structure and purpose of New Testament letters.
