About-

In this book Jacob Jervell challenges two widely held theories about Luke: that he was a representative of the institutional church, and that his writing was directed primarily at Gentile readers. He also presents much valuable insight into the growing pains of the early church, especially the relationship of the Jews to the Jewish Christians, and the relationship of both these groups to the Gentiles.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"The prevailing post-Dibelian consensus on the nature and purpose of Acts has often been challenged by conservative scholars who still think that Luke is primarily a historian. Jacob Jervell's critique is far more searching. He agrees for the most part with the methods of the redaction critics, but disputes their conclusions. He substantiates his critique by an independent analysis of the text, pointing up features of Lukan theology which had largely been overlooked. This work should loosen up the study of Luke-Acts for some time to come, and get it out of the rut into which it has lately fallen."

Reginald H. Fuller, Professor of New Testament, Virginia Theological Seminary
