Sandelin (emeritus, New Testament exegetics, Abo Academi U., Finland) collects essays spanning the past couple decades on statements by Paul and Philo concerning people who were in danger of transgressing the border between their Jewish or Christian communities and the sphere of religious activity in the surrounding world. Among his topics are the danger of idolatry according to Philo of Alexandria, whether Paul argues against sacramentalism and over-confidence in 1 Corinthians 10:1-14, Paul on idol food and idolatry in 1 Corinthians 8:1-11:1, a comparison between Philo and Paul on alien religion, and attraction and danger of alien religion in the Revelation of John. Distributed in the US by Coronet Books.
