9780521046282: History, Literature, and Society in the Book of Acts

These essays use an interdisciplinary approach for recent Book of Acts scholarship. Insights from the social sciences, narratological studies, Greek and Roman rhetoric and history, and classics, set Acts in its original historical, literary and social context. These methods of interpretation have only recently been applied to Acts in a systematic way. This is a valuable overview of some of the chief preoccupations of current biblical studies from leading scholars in Old and New Testament studies and the history of antiquity.

Review:

"This is an indispensable collection for scholars dealing with the Lucan writings." Religious Studies Review

"This diverse collection of essays covers many major issues in the study of Acts....Though written by and for New Testament schoalrs, the book is of value for other Religious Studies profesionals interested in the Book of Acts." J. Christian Wilson, Christianity and Literature

"...the articles in this volume are of good quality. Good biblical libraries will want to purchase this volume." Robert F. O'Toole, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly

"What makes the present collection of essays essential reading is its conscious attempt to make the interdisciplinary connections that are often spoken of but rarely exemplified. This volume is one that can be read with profit by academics and clergy. It is highly recommended for all who wish to remain abreast not just of Luke-Acts studies, but of advances in utilizing interdisciplinary methodologies in biblical studies." Iain S. Maclean, ATR

"...this volume deserves more than a single reading." Markus MÜller, Pro Ecclesia

"No student of Acts should overlook these essays, which contribute much to the study of Acts." Edgar Krentz, Currents

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2007. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.These seminal essays introduce the reader to the interdisciplinary approach of New Testament scholarship which is affecting the way the Book of Acts is studied and interpreted. Insights from the social sciences, narratological studies, Greek and Roman rhetoric and history, and classics, set the Acts of the Apostles in its original historical, literary and social context; these methods of interpretation have not always been applied to biblical study in a systematic way. The discussions from a shared general perspective range over genre and method, historical and theological problems, and issues of literary criticism. History, Literature and Society in the Book of Acts is an interesting and valuable overview of some of the chief preoccupations of biblical studies with contributions from leading scholars in the Old and New Testaments and the history of antiquity.
