Publisher's Description

Exemplary Life articulates Luke’s vision for life together in a local church using key passages from Acts 2:42-47; 4:32-35; and 5:12-16 (known as "summary narratives") as the starting point of reference. Although Luke is rightly acclaimed as the church’s first historian, he was a powerful writer and theologian as well. He also planted churches with Paul and had definite convictions about what life together in the church should look like. Yet, Luke’s theology of church life is underemphasized in modern scholarship, downplayed by issues rising from the historical-critical method.

However, when the summary narratives are studied through the lens of narrative and rhetorical criticism, Luke’s 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 Luke’s 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 Luke’s voice in 21st century conversations about the faithful formation of New Testament churches.

Endorsements

Can Acts teach us about modern church life? Andy Chambers says. ‘Yes indeed’, and shows us how its portrait can enliven the church. It is a book worth reading with ideas worth implementing.
-Darrell Bock,
Dallas Theological Seminary

In Chamber’s Exemplary Life you can find help for building the modern church on an ancient and rock-solid foundation.
-George Guthrie
Union University

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.
-R. Albert Mohler, Jr.
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Exemplary Life helps us hear Luke’s distinctive voice on the church alongside other Bible authors. I highly recommend it.
-Thom S. Rainier,
CEO Lifeway Christian Resources

In a day of tremendous upheaval and debate over what church life should look like, we need a book that bring’s Luke’s voice back into the conversation. Chambers’s volume does just that.
-Ed Stetzer,
President, Lifeway Research

In lucid language, Chambers provides a compelling argument that Luke’s rhetorical strategy is to illuminate a model for the church’s life before God and the world. I highly recommend this volume for pastors and academic, as well as their students.
-Malcom B. Yarnell III,
Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
