Following scholarship in the fields of Biblical Theology and Interpretation can be quite a daunting task to say the least, and a veritable labyrinth or bitter rivalry at its worst,but here is scholar quite unlike any other. Having grown from Pentecostal and Mennonite traditions into a category quite his own, Martin Mittelstadt (MM from this point) presents an honest analysis of the interpretation of Luke-Ats in the Pentecostal tradition. Viewing also non-Pentecostal sources, and taking care also to include critques and criticisms from mainstream scholarship, MM shows the growth of scholars in the fields and their impact upon it. This work also provides a condensed history of the Pentecostal tradition, important to those who would otherwise be unaware of its origins. Thoughtful and well researched, MM writes in a style that provides masterfully concise clarity and yet holds one's attention as well as a NY Times best seller. Recommend for anyone as learning aid for Luke-Acts related study, biblical interpretation, or Pentecostal history. I'm looking forward to later monologues from Dr. Mittelstadt.

"Reading Luke-Acts in the Pentecostal Tradition" was an awesome book, and it opened my eyes to the extent of Pentecostal research on Luke-Acts that is available. Part one was a great introduction, especially for those who are not familiar with the origins of Pentecostalism. Part two was good because it showed the issues that Pentecostals most vehemently defend. Part two, I believe, showed how Pentecostals were "backed into a corner" by James Dunn. He was not merely challenging a doctrine in Pentecostalism; he was challenging the very foundation of it. The scholars that were mentioned wrote some great material on the subject, and they attempted to refute Dunn's arguments. Part three was probably my favorite section because it dealt with a plethora of other issues that are important to Pentecostals. Part four was great because it showed how Pentecostal scholars are starting to produce some good material in academia.

Overall, the book was excellent because it was balanced: it provided new information and listed relevant scholars and their works. One could read this book and learn about how Pentecostals view Luke-Acts, where to find information on the subject, and the extent to which Pentecostal scholars have already gone in researching Luke-Acts. I highly recommend it!
