Unpublished endorsement

"T. Christopher Hoklotubbe is to be commended for furnishing us with the first monograph-length treatment of the theme of pietas (eusebeia)—one of the Roman Empire’s most celebrated ideals—in the Pastoral Epistles. In doing so he expands Paul and Empire scholarship beyond the confines of the earlier Pauline corpus to consider the presence of this as well as other imperial motifs in these later letters. The result is an exciting and thorough new study that every person interested in the emergence of Christianity as well as method in the study of Paul in the Roman Empire needs to read. I heartily recommend it."

—Harry O. Maier, Professor of New Testament and Early Christian Studies, Vancouver School of Theology
