This book is a comprehensive survey of the dialogue between pagans, Jews, and Christians in the Roman empire up to the time when Constantine declared himself a Christian. Each chapter is written by a distinguished scholar and is devoted to a single text or group of texts with the aim of identifying the probable audience, the literary milieu, and the circumstances that led to this form of writing.
