Among the Gentiles

Luke Timothy Johnson's latest book is entitled Among the Gentiles. In it, he argues that early Christianity followed many of the patterns of pagan religion. Johnson briefly discuss the book here.

Two of his remarks are important reminders for church folks:
  • The danger of demonizing the religion of others (pagans, Judaism, etc.)
  • How much we are like others (looking for/finding commonalities)
