Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"The Book of Acts in Its Ancient Literary Setting" includes fourteen chapters devoted to the literary framework that undergirds the Book of Acts. Topics include the text as historical monograph, ancient rhetoric and speeches, the Pauline corpus, biblical history, subsequent ecclesiastical histories, and modern literary method. All of these chapters arise out of a consultation by the project's scholars at Cambridge in March 1993.

His previous books include "Roman Wives, Roman Widows: The Appearance of New Women and the Pauline Communities" and "After Paul Left Corinth: The Influence of Secular Ethics and Social Change."

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I wrote an unpublished Acts and NT History commentary, using this series among other works, as the foundation. This plus John Mauck's "Paul On Defense" are a must for the Acts student. It takes a lot of reading to get through all the "Setting" books, but if you put the info in your notes, it will serve you all your life to recall the powerful information within.
