Product Description

How can preachers make the book of Acts come alive not only during Eastertide-when passages from Acts are included in the lectionary-but throughout the church year? Ron Allen's Acts of the Apostles helps the preacher identify possibilities for preaching based on texts and themes in the book of Acts, offering a basic exegetical framework for interpreting passages in Acts in their historical, literary, rhetorical, and theological contexts. Throughout his commentary, Allen examines the relationship of Acts to the Gospel of Luke, discussing parallel passages between the two volumes and observing how themes in the Gospel carry forward into Acts. Acts of the Apostles will help to renew understanding of this too-often understudied book for the life of the church.

Readings from Acts are offered only during Easter, so how can preachers make this important book come alive throughout the church year?Acts of the Apostles helps the preacher identify possibilities for sermons based on texts and themes in the book of Acts. While offering a basic exegetical framework for interpreting passages in Acts in their historical, literary, rhetorical, and theological contexts, this volume also suggests ways in which the preacher can relate passages and motifs from Acts to the congregation and world today.
