However, when the summary narratives are studied through the lens of narrative and rhetorical criticism, Lukes strategy is unmistakable. Those passages cast a vision for life together in an exemplary church, drawn from the historical circumstances of the church in Jerusalem. These narratives also serve as a starting point for studying church life throughout Acts. When the church planting movements in Samaria, Antioch, Ephesus, and Troas are examined, we find echoes of the narratives almost constantly. These amplify and drive home Lukes message in the summary narratives.
Taking this path, twenty distinct characteristics of exemplary church life emerge. From repentance and Scriptural authority to praying together and earning the respect of neighbors, each one is thoughtfully presented here by author Andy Chambers to reassert Lukes voice in 21st century conversations about the faithful formation of New Testament churches.

In Chambers Exemplary Life you can find help for building the modern church on an ancient and rock-solid foundation.
Andy Chambers firmly believes that the book of Acts is deeply relevant to the church and to the Christian life in our contemporary age. His thorough study of Acts will be of great benefit to the church, and I warmly welcome the publication of this book.

Exemplary Life helps us hear Lukes distinctive voice on the church alongside other Bible authors. I highly recommend it.

In a day of tremendous upheaval and debate over what church life should look like, we need a book that brings Lukes voice back into the conversation. Chamberss volume does just that.
President, Lifeway Research
In lucid language, Chambers provides a compelling argument that Lukes rhetorical strategy is to illuminate a model for the churchs life before God and the world. I highly recommend this volume for pastors and academic, as well as their students.
