The Book of Acts In Its Ancient Literary Setting
Edited by Bruce Winter and Andrew Clarke
From The Publisher:
The Book of Acts in Its Ancient Literary Setting includes fourteen chapters devoted to the literary framework that undergirds the Book of Acts. Topics include the text as an historical monograph, ancient rhetoric and speeches, the Pauline corpus, biblical history, subsequent ecclesiastical histories, and modern literary method.
"...a number of quite fresh approaches to Acts...A dozen different genres or types of document are explored here, resulting in a rich mix of options. Acts emerges from its isolation into a world of contemporary rhetoric and recording. This work lifts the study of Acts onto a new, much more contextual plane. . .A most attractive entree to a promising series."
Edwin A. Judge, Macquarie University, Sydney, Australia
