Acts within Diverse Frames of Reference
Phillips, Thomas E.

Macon, Ga.: Mercer, 2009 pp. 208. $30.00


Description: New Testament scholars often proceed with their work as if their methods and areas of inquiry were predetermined. This work provides three important services for New Testament study, and Acts scholarship in particular. First, the work surveys contemporary Acts scholarship on two important topics of the day: the genre of Acts and issues of wealth and poverty in Luke-Acts. Second, this volume provides a careful analysis of the process of interpretation and calls for greater self-awareness among critical readers of Acts. Third, this book urges scholars to open themselves to new and broader areas of inquiry in the study of Acts. Anyone interested in the New Testament, Christian origins, or the early church will benefit from this study of the Acts of the Apostles.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Acts, Literature
