Item description for Letter Writing in Greco-Roman Antiquity (LEC) (Library of Early Christianity, Vol 5) by Stowers...
Overview 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.
Making use of letters--both formal and personal--that have been preserved through the ages, Stanley Stowers analyzes the cultural setting within which Christianity arose.
The Library of Early Christianity is a series of eight outstanding books exploring the Jewish and Greco-Roman contexts in which the New Testament developed.
