  1. Moschos Goutzioudis's review of my book is inaccurate at one important point. He writes: "Absent also is any reference to the other religious and philosophical groups of New Testament times, though there is bibliography about them." This is simply dead wrong. I present a section on religions and philosophy on pp. 44-47. Given space limitations, the treatment is not as full as one might like, but it is simply wrong to say that there is no reference to these subjects. Ordinarily I wouldn't be too bothered, but in the case of an introduction to the NT, it would be a serious omission. Readers of Goutzioudis’s review, who don't look at the book itself, could understandably dismiss it from consideration as a textbook, on the basis of his unfortunate misstatement.
