Asceticism and the New Testament


Addressing each book of the New Testament, an outstanding roster of scholars considers what asceticism may mean within New Testament studies. The question of the role of asceticism has often been overlooked in examining the New Testament. This major project in New Testament Studies is both comprehensive and comparative in its representation of how the question of asceticism might reorder the way in which we interpret the New Testament.
