"It is no overstatement when we hail Arthur Darby Nock as the scholar of our generation who was best equipped to picture 'Early Gentile Christianity.' In his studies here presented to a wider public one finds that rare phenomenon: a text where each sentence appears clear and simple, but where the specialist sees that this simplicity is born out of a painstaking analysis of the original sources and a breadth of knowledge almost beyond human comprehension. In a time when the Jewish background is more in focus than is the Gentile, Nock's studies are the more significant. With his death they take on the added weight of a challenging testament."Soft Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
