There is a good review of my book Jesus and the Origins of the Gentile Mission by Steven M. Bryan. He concludes: "That the early church still struggled with the terms of Gentile admission into the holy people of God suggests that a mission to Gentiles cannot be reliably traced to the pre-Easter period. Yet, as Bird shows, a mission to Gentiles can be confidently placed within the effective history of Jesus. Bird's demonstration of the continuities between Jesus and the Gentile mission is thus to be welcomed as an important contribution to our understanding of the indespensable role of Jesus in the rise of early Christianity" (p. 645).
