Description: Luke the Historian and Theologian looks globally over "written texts" that are being read as authoritative scripture and pronounces them as pointing together. He argues that both Hellenistic rhetorical historiography and Israel's scriptural heritage distinguish the ever intriguing landscape that we call Luke-Acts and, through a thematic movement of its own, brings both dimensions into bold, coherent relief.
