About the Author
Robert J. Myles is lecturer in New Testament at Murdoch University. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
Why are modern scholars, in the words of Robert J. Myles, 'fishing for entrepreneurs in the ancient economy'? This volume brings together scholars who over time have sustained a critical discourse on the economic theories informing New Testament texts but even more their modern interpretation. The volume stands out especially with its chapters that systematically work through textual and material cultures as they relate to specific labour or work areas in the biblical world: the military, peasants, fishermen, slaves, the retainer classGÇôGÇôand archangels! This focus on specific 'classes' yields a detailed, nuanced, interesting, and improved picture of the mixed and conflicting class perspectives embedded in the New Testament. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
