1 in stock
Written in a readable style, with more detailed interaction with scholarly discussion found in the various exercises, this commentary draws on the best new insights from a number of disciplines (narratological studies of Luke-Acts, archaeological and social scientific study of the New Testament, rhetorical analysis of Acts, comparative studies in ancient historiography) to provide the reader with the benefits of recent innovative ways of analysing the text of Acts.
In addition, there is detailed attention to major theological and historical issues, including the question of the relationship of Acts to the Pauline letters, the question of early Christian history and how the church grew and developed, the relationship between early Judaism and early Christianity, and the relationship between Christianity and the officials of the Roman Empire.
This book is illustrated with various pictures and charts which help to bring to light the character and setting of these narratives.
