Customer Review

on January 9, 2011
The author narrows the scope of his study to narrative and the sociopolitical and thereby makes his study accessible. Excluding introductory matters, there are 160 pages of actual text with a total of 210 pages for the entire book. There are endnotes rather than footnotes. Most helpful are his chapters on the use of trials in Greco-Roman novels and on the trials in the Acts of the Apostles. At times I wished that he had said more about the contemporary implications of what the four Gospels and Acts have to say about the gospel's challenge to sociopolitical realities. At the same time I applaud the author for raising in a persistent way the question of the Gospel's stance towards the sociopolitical. I would highly recommend this insightful and very readable book to educated laity, seminarians, and clergy.
