"Is neither a commentary nor a book of homilies, but rather a set of observations on what phrases and passages in Acts remind us of in the later history of Christian doctrine. As a sampler of vintage Pelikan tidbits, it is a scintillating work, a tour de force in the history of dogma, a kaleidoscope of brilliant reflections,"---Pro Ecclesia. 320 pages, softcover. Baker.
In this volume, an internationally renowned historian of Christian doctrine offers a theological reading of Acts. Now in paper.
"[A] significant commentary. . . . Pelikan asks big questions: what is sin? what were the earliest creeds? what is the nature of apostleship? He is sensitive to nuances of Greek but not obsessed by them. As such, this book will be helpful to preachers and, to a lesser extent, general readers who are sometimes flummoxed by more specialized and technical biblical commentaries."
New series volumes will continue to release in cloth, but as older volumes reprint, they will release in paper.
Jaroslav Pelikan (1923-2006) was Sterling Professor Emeritus of History at Yale University. He received his PhD from the University of Chicago. His universally acclaimed works include the five-volume The Christian Tradition: A History of the Development of Doctrine and Jesus through the Centuries.
