PAIDEIA: Acts

PAIDEIA: Acts

In Acts, one of eighteen volumes in the Paideia commentary series, leading
biblical scholar Mikeal Parsons gleans fresh theological insight into Acts by
attending carefully to the cultural and educational context from which it
emerges. Parsons see Acts as a charter document explaining and legitimating
Christian identity for a general audience of early Christians living in the
ancient Mediterranean world.
Parsons's commentary on Acts takes an overt rhetorical approach to the " text, while not losing sight of its important theological implications. I
commend him for focusing his commentary on the final form of the text as it was
read by the first readers and recognizing the author as a theologian in his own
right. Parsons also provides useful supplemental comments to aid those
unfamiliar with the terminology of ancient rhetoric. A number of Parsons's
assumptions and conclusions will no doubt prompt significant further
discussion. - Stanley E. Porter
