This collection contains original research by John E. Steely's colleagues and students. From the early Christian experience of the apostle Paul to the current turmoil that has engulfed the Southern Baptist experience, from the question of self-definition within the Johannine community to the question of faith in God that frames modern Christian theology, from the struggle for Christian knowledge during the patristic period to the struggle for Christian authenticity within Steely's own work, it provides insights into the expansion of the early Christian mission and its subsequent theological heritage. Includes essays by J. Morris Ashcraft and Walter B. Shurden, known for their contributions to past issues in the Perspectives series. Offers a balanced and insightful glimpse into Steely's personal background and academic career, together with a complete bibliography of Steely's writings and translations.
