Hailed as groundbreaking when it was published in 1927, this classic volume remains a significant contribution to the study of Luke-Acts. Cadbury's examination of authorial intent based on linguistic and stylistic considerations; form-critical perspective; and comparison between Luke and other ancient writers offers scholars and laypeople alike a unique view of Luke's literary style and method.Henry J. Cadbury s analysis of the making of Luke-Acts is organized around four principal factors that affected that final form: the materials that were accessible to the author; the language and genre in which the author was writing; the author s own individual personality, often expressed unconsciously; and the author s conscious purpose in composition. "The Making of Luke-Acts" was first published in 1927 and has remained a mainstay in Lucan studies ever since. This edition includes a new introduction by Paul Anderson, George Fox University. The following pages aim to recover some features of [the character of the third evangelist], to visualize the other factors which went into his noteworthy undertaking, to illustrate from his contemporaries the methods of composition that he employed, and so to give as clear, comprehensive and realistic a picture as possible of the whole literary process that produced Luke and Acts. " from the preface Generations of students, whether novice or accomplished, have turned first to Henry Cadbury on matters related to Luke since the initial publication of "The Making of Luke-Acts" in 1927. In this disarmingly small text, Cadbury anticipated by decades almost every facet of contemporary concern in Lukan studies. The republication of this valuable bookis welcomed indeed. " Joel B. Green, Professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary
