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 Lukes 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 Lukes material, The Acts of the Apostles will prove extremely relevant for any preacher or teacher of Luke-Acts.
