'This collection of articles offers readers an insightful orientation to social-scientific criticism and to cultural concepts and models that are assumed by New Testament texts. Working with writings from across the NT, the articles identify and elucidate central aspects of the ancient cultural system: kinship, patron-client relations, economics, honor and shame, purity, social location, gender, space, healing, evil eye, limited good, and modal personality. The result is a recognition of the significant distance between our world and the NT world, along with considerable insight into the meaning of NT texts.' - Warren Carter
