About-

This is the most complete translation of the Acts of Paul in English, together with a detailed commentary. The orientation is primarily literary, with detailed attention to the history of composition and revision. Unlike many studies, this commentary does not focus upon the story of Thecla.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"With characteristic energy and erudition, Richard Pervo reintroduces the Acts of Paul to the specialist and the nonspecialist. The translation is exhilarating, at times even racy. The introduction, notes, and commentary are rich and disciplined. The volume will serve as the new point of departure for students of this important but neglected apocryphal book--likely in origin the first of the 'major' apocryphal acts and thus standing at the threshold between Christian canon and Christian apocrypha."
--Julian Hills, Marquette University

"Kudos to Richard Pervo for the first English translation of the entire extant Acts of Paul. This text will be indispensible for situating the Acts in its literary, historical, and theological context. Pervo opens with a comprehensive introduction and then proceeds with a translation, commentary, bibliography, and notes for each section. Pervo provides the most complete commentary on the text in any language, a tour de force by this distinguished canonical Acts and Apocrypha scholar."
--Judith Perkins, University of Saint Joseph
