Given that this form of Christianity is generally considered by scholars as atypical within the early church, Theophilus has not received the same amount of attention as have other second-century theologians.

Rick Rogers seeks to redress this gap, offering a fuller analysis of the rhetoric and focus of Theophiluss theological system as it is manifest in Ad Autolycum. Rogers concludes that Theophiluss thought may have been closer to the emphasis of Hellenistic Judaism than was any other form of New Testament or early Christianity.

His book will hold strong appeal for scholars and students of early Christianity.
