This book is a useful contribution to the discussion of late antique monotheism. Journal of Roman Studies A brilliant chapter by Stephen Mitchell provides a remarkably fresh insight into the cult of Theos Hypsistos ... fine volume. Journal for the Study of the Old Testament What this book demonstrates, as no other before it and in a revolutionary way, is the plain absurdity of equating paganism with polytheism. In a modest compass and through six contributions from leading scholars ... the editors ... have opened up a world that is not a battleground between those who believe in one god and those who believe in many ... It will henceforth be the fundamental study of this difficult and fascinating subject. Glen Bowersock, Times Literary Supplement Essential reading to any student of antiquity: patristic scholars and philosophers of God alike. Journal of Early Chrisitan Studies
