This study investigates why "faith" (<em>pistis/fides</em>) was so important to early Christians that the concept and praxis dominated the writings of the New Testament. It argues that such a study must be interdisciplinary, locating emerging Christianities in the social practices and <em>mentalites</em> of contemporary Judaism and the early Roman empire. This can, therefore, equally be read as a study of the operation of <em>pistis/fides</em> in the world of the early Roman principate, taking one small but relatively well-attested cult as a case study in how micro-societies within that world could treat it distinctively.
Drawing on recent work in sociology and economics, the book traces the varying shapes taken by <em>pistis/fides</em> in Greek and Roman human and divine-human relationships: whom or what is represented as easy or difficult to trust or believe in; where pistis/fides is "deferred" and "reified" in practices such as oaths and proofs; how <em>pistis/fides</em> is related to fear, doubt and scepticism; and which foundations of <em>pistis/fides</em> are treated as more or less secure.
The book then traces the evolution of representations of human and divine-human <em>pistis</em> in the Septuagint, before turning to <em>pistis/pisteuein</em> in New Testament writings and their role in the development of early Christologies (incorporating a new interpretation of <em>pistis Christou</em>) and ecclesiologies. It argues for the integration of the study of <em>pistis/pisteuein</em> with that of New Testament ethics. It explores the interiority of Graeco-Roman and early Christian <em>pistis/fides</em>. Finally, it discusses eschatological <em>pistis</em> and the shape of the divine-human community in the eschatological kingdom.
