Omtale bak på boka:
"Oskar Skarsaune's In the shadow of the temple is outstanding and will not only serve well the general reader, for whom the auther writes, it will also serve well the scholar and student alike. Skarsaune has produced a gem that deftly lays out the major events, institutions, beliefs and figures of Judaism of late antiquity and how they shaped early Christianity. This reader-friendly book is a must."
Craig A. Evans, Trinity Western University
"Although this bok is written at a level that will be easily accessible to students, it is based on sound and fresh scholarship by a leading early church historian. It has the merit of surveying the history of the Christian movement from its beginnings with Jesus through the pre-Constantinian period from the spesific perspective of demonstrating the close links between Christianity and its Jewish roots that persisted throughout this period. The author has not only harvested much specialized scholarship .... but also has his own personal contribution to make. This attractive presentation is a 'must' for all students of the early church."
I. Howard Marshall, University of Aberdeen
"Oskar Skarsaune is surely right on the Jewishness of early Christianity and the importance of the temple for its developments. He marshals an accurate display of historical information and exercises sound judgjement in weighing probabilities. The result not only establishes the Jewish influences on early Christianity but also presents a persuasive synthesis of key elements in the story of Christian origins."
Everett Ferguson, Abilene Christian University
"In this highly informative and stimulating book, Professor Skarsaune demonstrates how illumintating it can be to read the New Testament from the perspective of the fully Jewish character of early Christianity. This novel approach to Christian origins will enrich readers making them more sensitive to the Jewishness of the New Testament and early Christianity and more apprecitative of the debt Christianity owes to the Jews."
Donald A. Hagner, Fuller Theological Seminar
"Professor Skarsaune has long been known as a leading scholar of early Jewish and Gentile Christian history. Here he brings his outstanding specialist learning to bear in a wonderfully accessible, comprehensive introduction to the Jewish basis of Christian faith and history throughout the first three centruries. In binding together the New Testament's Jewish roots with the life of the early Jewish and Gentile church, this is an outstanding textbook of Chrisitan origins."
