Product Description

This work offers a basic study of contemporary scholarship regarding the Book of Acts. Author Powell surveys selected works and focuses on offering clear explanations of trends and representative positions held by scholars today. Powell offers a breakdown of the Book of Acts into terms which are easily understood. The first few chapters determine how Acts is to be interpreted, its relationship to Luke's Gospel, the literary genre to which it should be assigned and its specific purposes. Then, basic questions are considered regarding the composition, who wrote it and what sources were used. The remaining chapters focus on three different perspectives from which Acts is sometimes interpreted: major redaction criticisms, more recent approaches, and the outlinig of current scholarly opinion on the theology of Acts.
