After the First Urban Christians: The Social-Scientific Study
of Pauline Christianity Twenty-Five Years Later

This book was written on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the publication of The First Urban Christians by Wayne A. Meeks. In this now-classic work Meeks examined the socio-historical context of Pauline Christianity through the lens of Paul�s letters. After The First Urban Christians, edited by Todd D. Still and David G. Horrell, is a collection of seven essays written by established scholars, plus an epilog authored by Meeks himself, that revisits and updates Meeks�s landmark volume. Furthermore, After The First Urban Christians offers fresh lines of inquiry for the future study of Paul and his churches in their social setting.
