Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I purchased the used book that this page advertised for 64 bux. There is another one for 88 bux on amazon which indicates that the book seems to be out of print. With the new developments in Biblical criticism such as that brought forward by Richard Pervo in his "Dating Acts" and Joseph Tyson's "Marcion and Luke-Acts: A Defining Struggle", what John Knox was saying back in the late 30s and early 40s of the 20th century is even more relevant today.

Knox is a pleasure to read because he is so clear and careful in his explanations such that even a non-specialist can follow him. He is also extremely gentlemanly and even if he disagrees with others, he approaches them and their ideas with respect and tries to find the most positive spin to frame his objections.

In a way, this last factor, though it makes for pleasant reading - no heart thumping upset in the presence of confrontation - it is also disheartening when you think about the implications: that the texts and authors of the Bible are so privileged by those who study them that almost no progress has been made in the last 300 years.

What Knox has done here, however, is that he has taken a rather bold leap in thinking and understanding (not to mention drawing totally logical conclusions) despite the fact that he has had to couch everything in the most appeasing of terms.

Knox points out the obvious fact that the author of Acts was familiar with, and used, the writings of Josephus. That eliminates the earlier consensus of a very early date for Luke-Acts. He also proposes that both Acts and the final version of the Gospel of Luke were written and published at the time when Marcion of Pontus was beginning to proclaim his version of the Christian gospel.

Being a theology student and professional I red this book in 90-ties and it made impression, even formed my understanding of NT canon development. I think this is one of good books on the subject.
