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!
