"A lifetime of exceptional Jesus research in a bookthat is what Larry Hurtado presents us with in Ancient Jewish Monotheism and Early Christian Jesus-Devotion. The chapters in this book represent foundational studies published over Hurtados forty-year career on the question most central to New Testament and early Christian studies: How did Jesus come to share in divinity and become an object of worship? This book is a compendium on New Testament and early Christology, and an essential companion to Hurtados celebrated books, One God, One Lord (1988) and Lord Jesus Christ (2003)." April D. DeConick, Chair of the Department of Religion, Rice University and author of The Gnostic New Age: How a Countercultural Spirituality Revolutionized Religion from Antiquity to Today
"This collection of essays brings together some of the most stimulating and insightful research conducted during the prestigious career of Larry Hurtado on a key historical question: What are the origins of devotion to Jesus in early Christianity? They demonstrate why he is the leading light of the new History of Religion School. Hurtado is to the 21st century what Bousset was to the 20th." David B. Capes, Academic Dean and Professor of New Testament, Houston Baptist University

It is great to have this material brought together, both because of the importance of the topic, and because of the importance of the author's thinking on the topic. For young aspiring scholars it also shows what a lifetime of conscientious research can look like. -- David Wenham -- Journal for the Study of the New Testament
