Endorsements & Reviews-

"For many years there has been ongoing work here on the book of Acts, looking into the narrative in its Greco-Roman and Jewish settings, and we greatly appreciate your contribution to this research. It leads the reader to a better understanding of the mindset of the period, while focusing on issues that are still fundamental for the Christian church today."
--Dr. Elizabeth Magba, Librarian, Tyndale House, Cambridge, UK

"The significance of conversion to the Acts of the Apostles is indisputable, so it is surprising that this motif historically has attracted so little scholarly attention. We can therefore celebrate all the more Babu Immanuel's joining the small but growing ranks of those who of late have turned their critical attention to this important literary and theological theme in Acts. Adopting a narrative-critical approach, Immanuel urges that, working in tandem, miraculous activity and missionary proclamation are effective means for effecting conversion of Jew and Gentile alike. The result is a welcome emphasis on the role of Luke not only as theologian or historian, but also, and centrally, as 'mission strategist.'"
--Joel B. Green, Professor of New Testament Interpretation, Fuller Theological Seminary
