Enthusiastically recommended for advanced theology and Biblical literature reference shelves.  Mar 4, 2007

Specific topics discussed include Christian identity, Christian martyrdom, heterodoxy and orthodoxy, conjugal ethics and apostolic homewreckers, asceticism, eroticism, and much more. An extensive bibiography and index of references rounds out this scholarly and at times technical close analysis.
