Description: The essays in this volume are an expression of appreciation of Wendell Lee Willis, who recently retired after a distinguished career as a classroom teacher, colleague, and scholar. Current and former colleagues have written to advance Wendellís research interests in the various contexts of early Christianity, particularly in the apostle Paul, New Testament ethics, and ecclesiology. Essays include discussions of issues related to Paul's correspondence with the church in Corinth and the depiction of Paul in Acts, Jesusís parables, meals, and the religious and socio-political world in which Christianity arose. Contributors include Clifford A. Barbarick, John H. Boyles, James Bury, Jeff W. Childers, Kenneth L. Cukrowski, Everett Ferguson, Mark W. Hamilton, Christopher R. Hutson, David Kneip, Curt Niccum, Jeffrey Peterson, Amand Jo Pittman, Jerry L. Sumney, James W. Thompson, and Richard A Wright.
