Product Description

This reappraisal of the Acts of the Apostles, written in narrative form, allows the reader to understand the biblical author's worldview, historical and ideological assumptions, and purposes as they were communicated through portions of his work. Marion Soards analyzes the speech texts by comparing them to writings from ancient history, rhetoric, and midrashic interpretation of scripture. He provides a clear picture of the manner of writing in Acts, its theology, and the encompassing history of the early Christian period; and the book supplies a sound basis for contemporary Jewish-Christian relations.
