Product Description

The Acts of the Apostles [PNTC] offers a thorough exegesis of the Book of Acts, drawing on recent scholarship in the field of narrative criticism and theological analysis, incorporating insights about historical and social context, and seeking to investigate why Luke presents his material in the way that he does. Providing not only extensive engagement with hermeneutical issues and incorporation of insights on Greco-Roman background, but also guidelines for contemporary application of LukeB's material, The Acts of the Apostles will prove extremely relevant for any preacher or teacher of Luke-Acts.

Endorsements

Craig S. Keener
-Palmer Theological Seminary
David Peterson interacts with Acts scholarship fairly and in an up-to-date way; his literary and historical conclusions are well informed and sound. His introduction airs issues thoroughly, yet the entire work is easy to follow. Peterson consistently engages the cohesive, larger picture and the theological message of the book.

I. Howard Marshall
-University of Aberdeen
Here in one convenient volume is the basic introductory information and verse-by-verse exegesis that New Testament students and preachers need in order to understand the second part of Luke’s account of Christian beginnings. This commentary is noteworthy for its incorporation of a full essay on the theology of Acts and its careful attention to theological issues in the course of the exposition; at the same time it does not neglect historical and literary matters. I warmly commend this useful tool for study.

Author Bio

David Peterson is senior research fellow in New Testament at Moore Theological College, Sydney. His previous books include Hebrews and Perfection, Possessed by God, and (edited with Howard Marshall) Witness to the Gospel.

Publisher Description

This volume in the Pillar New Testament Commentary Series offers a thorough exegesis of the Book of Acts, drawing on recent scholarship in the field of narrative criticism and theological analysis, incorporating insights about historical and social context, and seeking to investigate why Luke presents his material in the way that he does.

If Acts was written primarily for the edification of believes and the encouragement of gospel ministry beyond the apostolic period, as many argue, how did Luke use his sources to achieve that purpose? David Peterson here seeks to answer that question. He focuses especially on the way narrative and speeches are employed to express theology and appeal to readers. A lengthy introduction summarizes and interacts with a range of scholarly views on Luke’s work. Peterson also provides a thematic study of some of the main theological emphases of Luke-Acts.

Providing not only extensive engagement with hermeneutical issues and incorporation of insights on Greco-Roman background, but also guidelines for contemporary application of Luke’s material, The Acts of the Apostles will prove extremely relevant for any preacher or teacher of Luke-Acts.
