Meeks' landmark volume examines the socio-historical context of Pauline Christianity through the lens of Paul's letters. This year marks the twenty-five anniversary of the publication of "The First Urban Christians" by Wayne A. Meeks. In this now-classic work Meeks examined the socio-historical context of Pauline Christianity through the lens of Paul's letters. After "The First Urban Christians", edited by Todd D. Still and David G. Horrell, is a collection of seven essays written by established scholars, plus an epilog authored by Meeks himself, that revisits and updates Meeks' landmark volume. Furthermore, "After The First Urban Christians" offers fresh lines of inquiry for the future study of Paul and his churches in their social setting.

Todd D. Still, David G. Holler

This is a fine volume, well-researched and more than adequately fulfilling the aim of the contributors to evaluate the contribution of Meek's volume to subsequent social-scientific criticism. Every chapter not only succinctly surveys relevant subsequent scholarship, but offers a substantial contribution to the ongoing debate.--Sanford Lakoff
