The gnostic writings found at Nag Hammadi have stimulated much controversy about the relationship between early Christians and the diverse religious movement of the first three centuries. Perkins fills the New Testament student's need for a guide to recent developments in scholarship with a helpful survey that addresses the origins of Gnosticism, its relationship to Judaism, Redeemer myths and New Testament hymns, and other relevant topics.
Pheme Perkins (Ph.D., Harvard University) is professor of New Testament in the Theology Department at Boston College. Among her many published books are Reading the New Testament; Gnosticism and the New Testament; Galatians; Ephesians (Abingdon New Testament Commentary) and the Politics of Faith and Peter: Apostle for the Whole Church and most recently Introduction to the Synoptic Gospels.
