“In this groundbreaking book David Nienhuis and Robert Wall show that the New Testament collection called the `Catholic Epistles’ has a structure and a rationale that profoundly impact the way its individual texts should be read. Like the fourfold canonical Gospel, this collection represents a decisive intervention in the process of creating a well-ordered Christian scripture out of the mass of early Christian writing.” – Francis Watson
