The Book of Acts in Its Ancient Literary Setting


Product Description
Product Details


Edwin A. Judge
"The Book of Acts in Its Ancient Literary Setting offers a number of quite fresh approaches to Acts. . . A dozen different genres or types of document are explored here, resulting in a rich mix of options. Acts emerges from its isolation into a world of contemporary rhetoric and recording. This work lifts the study of Acts onto a new, much ore contextual plane. . . A most attractive entr?e to a promising series." Martin Hengel
"An important contribution to a new and better understanding of Luke's Acts in its true literary and historical context. This work is coming at just the right time, when a change in the older pseudo-critical but (in reality) unhistorical assessment of Luke is becoming visible. It shows that Luke is a real Hellenistic historian writing a monograph about the history of a new messianic Jewish sect called 'Christians'. This group of highly qualified authors gives a convincing overview from quite different perspectives, helping us to do more justice to Luke and to better understand this fascinating early Christian author."
