"An impressive analysis.... Parsons draws on his extensive studies of Greco-Roman literature and ancient concepts of physiognomy to provide a useful and illuminating commentary."--Joseph B. Tyson, Catholic Biblical Quarterly
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. Graduate and seminary students, professors, and pastors will benefit from this readable commentary, as will theological libraries.
