This book sketches and illustrates in detail the range of understandings of the human condition and remedies for ills that prevailed when Jesus and the apostles - as well as their successors - were spreading the Christian message and launching Christian communities in the Graeco-Roman world. Healing played so prominent a part in Jesus' ministry as depicted in the New Testament that it is important to understand that aspect of his appeal in the context of the ways in which it was understood by Greeks, Romans and Jews of the time. Some saw sickness as the result of magic performed against the victims by enemies, others as the work of demons. Some saw health as the result of ordering life according to nature, emphasising the beneficial effects of natural substances. Jewish attitudes, for example, ranged widely over the centuries from hostility towards physicians to regard for them as men endowed by God with special knowledge for human benefit.

Incredibly important book. Highly recommend.
Uaha
This book is replete with methods used by the ancients to heal and achieve the impossible - for example, capsize a ship, or make a wall fall down. All healings attributed to doctors fall under `medicine,' all healings attributed to God/the gods fall under `miracle,' and all non-healing miracles fall under `magic.'

He covers the times before and after Jesus, and some of the information people in the New Testament couldn't have known about. However, much of it was during or before the first century. I do wish that he had gone into the Essene take on medicine, which David Flusser has covered in his book `Qumran and Apocalypticism,' to a greater degree.

The drawback of this book, and it is significant, is that if you are trying to find a first-century remedy for gout, or any number of other things, you are going to have a very hard time. What did they use for women in childbirth? I'm sure something, but I have no idea what, because the index is anything but exhaustive. Dropsy, lame, leprosy and liver are all there, but forget gout, stomach, childbirth or pregnancy. The tongue, however, is available? Seems to me I've had a few more stomachaches in my life than I've had tongue-aches!

In reference to the previous reviewer, I don't think you need to be a scholar to read it at all, and I definitely don't think the quote provided is representative of the work as a whole. The Society for NT Studies monograph series is an old and elite series, published by Cambridge, and it targets a scholars market. However, I didn't have any trouble understanding it, or find myself having to reread sections. There's refreshingly little Greek in here, which is often a problem for me in books like this. I thought the Medicine/Miracle/Magic differentiation was fine, although it did break down, as the author pointed out, toward the end of the third section, `Magic.'
