About this title:

Synopsis: This book brings James Dunn's magisterial Christianity in the Making trilogy to a close. Neither Jew nor Greek covers the period following the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 c.e. and running through the second century, when the still-new Jesus movement firmed up its distinctive identity markers and the structures on which it would establish its growing appeal in the following decades and centuries. Dunn examines in depth the major factors that shaped first-generation Christianity and beyond, exploring the parting of the ways between Christianity and Judaism, the Hellenisation of Christianity, and responses to Gnosticism. He mines all the first- and second-century sources, including the New Testament Gospels and such apostolic fathers as Ignatius, Justin Martyr, and Irenaeus. Comprehensively covering an important, complex era in early Christianity that is often overlooked, Neither Jew nor Greek is a landmark contribution to the field.|This book brings James Dunn's magisterial Christianity in the Making trilogy to a close.

Review: Craig S. Keener
Asbury Theological Seminary
Here we have on full display the distilled fruits of decades of research and engagement by a mature scholar of the first rank. James Dunn engages a vast range of secondary and primary literature in a way that only a senior scholar can do, synthesizing the best insights, critically and meticulously evaluating all sources and hypotheses, and producing a masterpiece of erudition that will be foundational for future work on the subject. While respectfully interacting with a range of scholarship, this work also forges its own noteworthy conclusions, in the process sometimes challenging conventional assumptions from across the spectrum of scholarly opinion.
Bruce Longenecker
Baylor University
Calling this substantial book his farewell to the large undertakings of my writing career, James Dunn compellingly engages developments in Christian identity from the destruction of Jerusalem in 70ce into the late second century. "Neither Jew nor Greek" is awe-inspiring in scope and majestic in execution. Like a peerless master taking his craft to new heights, Dunn accomplishes his task with the clarity of thought and expression that has been ahallmark of his long-standing career. This is both sweet vintage and astute valediction.
J. R. Daniel Kirk
Fuller Theological Seminary
In concluding his magnum opus, James Dunn offers a powerful account of how the earliest Jesus tradition and its various renderings by Jesus first Jewish followers came to shape and be shaped by the movement that developed from 70 to 200ce. Students and scholars alike will find much to appreciate, argue with, and learn from.
