Unity and Diversity has proved its value as a textbook over the years, but it is now well over ten years old and scholarship has not stood still in that period. To assist him in making the revisions now needed, Professor Dunn enlisted the help of his New Testament seminar, which subjected the whole book to a chapter-by-chapter critique. To take all recent developments into account, including recent studies in the sociology of early Christianity, relations between Judaism and early Christianity, and literary criticism, the book would have had to be rewritten. Since that was not possible the revision has been limited to completely revised bibliographies, expanded and additional notes to add occasional clarifications or qualifications to the text, and fresh introductions to each chapter.
