"What Acts aims to do," says Dr. Barclay in this important volume, "is to give us a series of typical exploits and adventures of the great heroic figures of the early Church. Although the book never says so, from the earliest times Luke has been held to its writer." He wrote both his Gospel and Acts for the principal purpose of showing how the new faith that began so humbly in Palestine had expanded. Dr. Barclay discusses the plan in Acts, Luke's skill as a historian, the accuracy of his sources, and the honesty with which he used them.
