The Fourfold Gospel A Theological Reading of the New Testament Portraits of Jesus Francis Watson
This groundbreaking approach to the study of the fourfold gospel offers a challenging alternative to prevailing assumptions about the creation of the gospels and the person of Jesus. Interweaving historical, exegetical, and theological perspectives, this book explains that the four gospels were chosen to give a portrait of Jesus. Francis Watson explores the significance of the fourfold gospel's plural form for those who constructed it and for later Christian communities. He focuses on reading the gospels alongside one another rather than in isolation and explains that the fourfold gospel is greater than, and other than, the sum of its individual parts. Endorsements "The Fourfold Gospel displays all the virtues that readers have come to expect from one of the finest biblical interpreters of our day: depth and breadth of learning, exegetical prowess, clarity of argument, and sure theological judgment, all in the service of the truth of the gospel."--John Webster, St. Mary's College, University of St. Andrews "What does it mean, theologically speaking, that we have four canonical gospels? Drawing on sources as diverse as Ezekiel's vision and Eusebius's canons, Francis Watson's reflection on this question is as astonishingly fresh as it is deeply grounded in the church's traditions. Not for specialists only, The Fourfold Gospel is rich and richly rewarding."--Beverly Roberts Gaventa, Baylor University "The contributions of Francis Watson are always innovative and incisive, and this book, which will win a large readership, is no exception. With his unrivaled ability to combine expert historical knowledge with interpretive acuity, he is like the ideal scribe in Matthew, who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old." --Dale C. Allison Jr., Princeton Theological Seminary "The old clichй about John's gospel is that it is like a sea in which a child may paddle or an elephant swim. The same could be said of this marvelous book, which makes an excellent introductory book for students while also brimming with both astute historical detective work and elegant and thoughtful (and sometimes moving) exegesis that is illuminating for the expert."--Simon Gathercole, University of Cambridge and Fitzwilliam College
Francis Watson (PhD, University of Oxford) is Research Chair in Biblical Interpretation at Durham University. He previously held the Kirby Laing Chair of New Testament Exegesis at the University of Aberdeen and taught at King's College London. Among his numerous works are the critically acclaimed Paul and the Hermeneutics of Faith; Paul, Judaism, and the Gentiles: Beyond the New Perspective; and Gospel Writing: A Canonical Perspective. He is also coauthor of Reading Scripture with the Church.

Darrell L. Bock (PhD, University of Aberdeen) is executive director for cultural engagement at the Hendricks Center at Dallas Theological Seminary, where he also serves as senior research professor of New Testament studies. He speaks and teaches around the world and has authored or edited numerous books, including Jesus according to Scripture, Studying the Historical Jesus, and major commentaries on Luke and Acts. Benjamin I. Simpson (PhD, Dallas Theological Seminary) is associate dean and assistant professor of New Testament studies at the Houston campus of Dallas Theological Seminary. He is the author of Recent Research on the Historical Jesus.
Why four Gospels rather than one? What should we do with the different emphases they present? Given the different ways they present Jesus, how can we put together all that Jesus taught and appreciate how the Gospels show us who Jesus is? This clear, compact introduction surveys what the Gospels tell us about who Jesus is by exploring his teachings and actions in their contexts. Darrell Bock and Benjamin Simpson treat the Gospels as reliable sources for a plausible portrait of Jesus. They open up fresh ways to appreciate how the Gospels work, explaining that the four Gospels, when taken together, help us to see Jesus with depth. Major Gospel themes are treated as are the distinct emphases in each Gospel, thus demonstrating why four Gospels about Jesus are better than one combined account. Condensing years of extensive study on the topic, this handy, readable textbook presents fresh ways to understand the Gospels, especially the Synoptics in comparison with John. Professors and students in courses on Jesus and the Gospels as well as pastors and church leaders will value this work. EndorsEment "Jesus the God-Man provides readers with an excellent entry into the ins and outs of critical study of the historical Jesus. Darrell Bock and Benjamin Simpson cover all the major points of importance and debate. They do so judiciously, fairly, and with clarity and precision. I am pleased to recommend it."--Craig A.

Being Human in God's World An Old Testament Theology of Humanity J. Gordon McConville
This major work by a widely respected Old Testament scholar and theologian unpacks a biblical perspective on fundamental questions of what it means to be human. J. Gordon McConville explores how a biblical view of humanity provides a foundation for Christian reflection on ethics, economics, politics, and church life and practice. He shows that the Old Testament's view of humanity as "earthed" and "embodied" plays an essential part in a well-rounded Christian theology and spirituality, and he applies the theological concept of the "image of God" to all areas of human existence. Endorsements "McConville offers a richly textured account of our humanity as the Hebrew Bible portrays it. His `spiritual' reading is both scholarly and engaging for a diverse audience, as he explores variously the material, political, gendered and sexual, as well as prayerful dimensions of human living `in the image of God.'"--Ellen F. Davis, Duke Divinity School "What does it mean to be human? Gordon McConville explores God's revelation in the Old Testament in response to this question. With insight and profundity, he illuminates our understanding, but more importantly he shows how the Old Testament invites us to spiritual transformation centered on worship. I recommend this book to all who want to understand themselves better and to grow as human beings created in the image of God."--Tremper Longman III, Westmont College Contents Introduction: On Thinking about Being Human 1. Humanity in the Image of God (Imago Dei) 2. "Like God" in the Garden of Eden (Gen. 2­3) 3. The Human "Constitution" in the Old Testament 4. The "Situated" Self 5.

The relationship between Matthew, Mark, and Luke is one of the most contested topics in Gospel studies. How do we account for the close similarities--and differences--in the Synoptic Gospels? In the last few decades, the standard answers to the typical questions regarding the Synoptic Problem have come under fire, while new approaches have surfaced. This up-to-date introduction, ideal for classroom use and individual study, articulates and debates the four major views. Following an overview of the issues, leading proponents of each view set forth their positions and respond to each of the other views. A concluding chapter summarizes the discussion and charts a direction for further study. This work will be of interest to professors, students, scholars, and other readers interested in the Synoptic Problem. Contents 1.

Sacred Tradition in the New Testament Tracing Old Testament Themes in the Gospels and Epistles Stanley E. Porter
"This collection of essays engages a perennial issue within the field of New Testament studies: the relationship of the earliest Christian literature to the heritage of its sacred traditions. In critical dialogue with recent scholarship, Porter clarifies the tricky methodological issues of how the New Testament cites, alludes to, and echoes scriptural texts. His insightful but provocative findings about the use of certain traditional texts and images by early Christians and by Jesus himself will no doubt stimulate further significant scholarly debate."--Harold W. Attridge, Yale Divinity School "Porter leads us into a fresh and stimulating understanding of the New Testament's appropriation of the sacred traditions of Israel's Scriptures. This is more than just another book on the New Testament's use of the Old. Porter's decision to focus on the titles of Jesus and broad themes makes the book practically a miniature New Testament theology, with the great virtue of helping us perceive the rich unity of the Bible. This is a book that deserves, and will reward, a thoughtful reading." --Donald A. Hagner, Fuller Theological Seminary "Stanley Porter's Sacred Tradition in the New Testament brings muchneeded nuance and definition to a very important phenomenon in New Testament literature, especially with reference to the popular but often ill-defined term intertextuality. Porter not only clarifies the relevant vocabulary and methods, but he also discusses several important texts and themes that relate to Jesus, his self-understanding, and the Christology that comes to expression in the New Testament. Anyone interested in the topic will want to engage this carefully researched and well-written book."--Craig A. Evans, Houston Baptist University "Ranging more widely than traditional treatments of the Old Testament in the New, Porter's study illustrates the broad role such traditions played in shaping the way Jesus was understood by New Testament authors and in shaping Jesus's own self-understanding. This is a significant contribution on much-debated issues."--Stephen Westerholm, McMaster University

Craig S. Keener (PhD, Duke University) is F. M. and Ada Thompson Professor of Biblical Studies at Asbury Theological Seminary. He is the author of many books, including Miracles: The Credibility of the New Testament Accounts, The IVP Bible Background Commentary: New Testament, The Historical Jesus of the Gospels, Gift and Giver, and commentaries on Acts, Matthew, John, Romans, 1­2 Corinthians, and Revelation.
"In Romans, Paul interacts more fully with the thought world of his day than in any of his other letters. Only someone who is wholly familiar with the richness of Jewish scripture and tradition, with the ancient philosophies of Stoics, Platonists, Epicureans, and others, and with the reality of human experience can fully appreciate why Paul argues as he does and the effectiveness of his argument. Craig Keener is one such scholar, and his rich exposition of key passages in Romans--as well as in 1­2 Corinthians, Philippians, and Colossians--brings out the point and force of Paul's argument for his own time again and again, and in a way that reinvigorates Paul's argument for a very different time." --James D. G. Dunn, Durham University "Craig Keener has filled a significant gap in Pauline studies as only he could do: with thousands of references to ancient sources to help us understand Paul's perspectives in context. The result is a work full of exegetical, theological, and even pastoral insight into the human mind according to Paul--especially the mind transformed in Christ." --Michael J. Gorman, St. Mary's Seminary & University, Baltimore "Only a scholar with Craig Keener's nous could write the most authoritative work to date on Paul's belief in the transformation of a person's mind from godless reasoning to possessing the mind of Christ. Keener describes the Pauline vision of the believing mind as one immersed in the Jesus story, freed by the Spirit's power, bathed in divine wisdom, and oriented toward heaven. This book will, quite literally, open your mind to Paul's theology of the mind."--Michael Bird, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia Contents Introduction 1. The Corrupted Mind (Rom. 1:18­32) 2.

Paul as a Problem in History and Culture The Apostle and His Critics through the Centuries Patrick Gray
The apostle Paul has influenced and inspired countless individuals and institutions. But for some, he holds a controversial place in Christianity. This engaging book brings intellectual and cultural history into conversation with study of the New Testament, exploring why many people have been wary of Paul and what their criticisms reveal about the church and the broader culture. Endorsements "Many scholars write only for other scholars, and some experts are adept at writing for more general audiences, but only a few can write well with both audiences in mind. Patrick Gray is one of those rare scholars, and his book on reactions to Paul through the centuries is a gem that merits the attention of all readers interested in early Christianity's most controversial apostle."--John T. Fitzgerald, University of Notre Dame "With much erudition, eloquence, and wit, Patrick Gray sets forth a fascinating two-thousand-year history of anti-Paulinism. Citing both scholarly and popular sources, he exposes the various (and at times bewildering) attitudes, assumptions, and motivations that lie behind the virile dislike of the apostle to the gentiles. This book will challenge both friends and foes of Paul to reflect critically on the relationship between Paul and the one he proclaimed as Messiah and Lord."--Thomas D. Stegman, SJ, Boston College School of Theology and Ministry "Every Paul scholar knows that Paul has always been controversial, but I wager that few know the breadth and depth of the animus toward him surveyed by Patrick Gray. Not everyone will agree with Gray's perspectives on all issues, but everyone will benefit from his thorough research and astute insights. I will not be able to resist using this volume in upcoming Paul seminars. It is sure to be a great discussion starter." --Mark D. Given, Missouri State University "Gray provides an insightful and accessible overview of the negative reception of the apostle Paul, from the Corinthians to Kazantzakis. An important contribution is the way in which Gray steers a reasonable middle course amid choppy, polemical waters. This book has great potential for sparking lively discussion in a classroom setting."--David L. Eastman, author of Paul the Martyr: The Cult of the Apostle in the Latin West
Patrick Gray (PhD, Emory University) is associate professor of religious studies at Rhodes College. He is the author of Opening Paul's Letters and Godly Fear: The Epistle to the Hebrews and Greco-Roman Critiques of Superstition.

In this addition to an acclaimed series, a respected scholar offers a theological reading of Exodus that highlights Aquinas's interpretations of the text. As with other volumes in the series, this commentary is ideal for those called to ministry, serving as a rich resource for preachers, teachers, students, and Study Groups.

Scot McKnight (PhD, University of Nottingham) is Julius R. Mantey Professor of New Testament at Northern Seminary. He is a world-renowned scholar, writer, and speaker. His blog, Jesus Creed, is one of the most popular and influential evangelical blogs. He is the author or editor of more than fifty books, including Kingdom Conspiracy, The Jesus Creed, The King Jesus Gospel, and Sermon on the Mount. McKnight is also a canon theologian for the Diocese of Churches for the Sake of Others. Joseph B. Modica (PhD, Drew University) is university chaplain and associate professor of biblical studies at Eastern University. He is the coeditor, with Scot McKnight, of Jesus Is Lord, Caesar Is Not: Evaluating Empire in New Testament Studies.
The new perspective on Paul has been criticized by some as not having value for ordinary Christians living ordinary lives. In this volume, world-renowned scholars offer a response to this question: How does the apostle Paul understand the Christian life? They explore the implications of the new perspective on Paul for the Christian life as well as the church. Contributors include James D. G. Dunn, Lynn H. Cohick, Timothy G. Gombis, Tara Beth Leach, Bruce W. Longenecker, Scot McKnight, Patrick Mitchel, and N. T. Wright. The book makes a fresh contribution to the new perspective on Paul conversation and offers important new insights into the orientation of the Christian life. Endorsements "Although the new perspective on Paul has been controversial, it has also been a great impetus toward rethinking theology and practice, not least in forcing us to see how the issues of grace and race are indelibly bound up together. In this volume, McKnight and Modica lead an international team of biblical scholars in thinking through what it means to say that God saves Jews and Gentiles through faith in Jesus, and how this shapes mission, ethics, holiness, community, and the Christian life. A stimulating and stirring read about what Paul means today!"--Michael F. Bird, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia "`Can these dry bones (of academic theories) live?' This question-- the `so what' factor--is not asked often enough in academia. But this book commences with the `so what' question in regard to the `new perspective' on Paul. In recent years, some have declared the new perspective to be passй at best and dead at worst. The contributors to this book make a cogent case not only that the new perspective is still a compelling reading of Paul in his context, but also that it draws out a depth and vitality in his theology and spirituality that can guide the Christian life and the church's life today."--Nijay K. Gupta, George Fox Evangelical Seminary

Hebrews Mary Healy Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture Peter S. Williamson and Mary Healy, series editors
In this addition to the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture, Mary Healy unpacks the Letter to the Hebrews, making its difficult and puzzling passages accessible to students, pastoral ministers, and lay readers. Her commentary shows how Hebrews reveals the meaning of Christ's death in light of the Old Testament figures, rites, and sacrifices that foreshadowed it. Healy explains that Hebrews, when fully understood, transforms our understanding of who God is, what he has done for us, and how we are to live as Christians today.
About the Series The Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture responds to the desire of Catholics to study the Bible in depth and in a way that integrates Scripture with Catholic doctrine, worship, and daily life. Series volumes are packed with features designed to help readers use the Bible more effectively in teaching, preaching, evangelization, and other forms of ministry. Each volume provides exegesis as well as reflection and application sections. Cross-references link each passage to the Catechism, the Lectionary, and related biblical texts. Sidebars present information on the background of the text and on how the text has been interpreted by the Church. Abundant quotations from saints and Church Fathers enable readers to glimpse the continuity of Catholic tradition. Each volume includes a glossary, a list of suggested resources, an index of pastoral topics, and an index of sidebars.

Intermediate Greek Grammar Syntax for Students of the New Testament David L. Mathewson and Elodie Ballantine Emig
This intermediate grammar for students of New Testament Greek incorporates the advances of recent linguistic research in an accessible and understandable way. Drawing on years of teaching experience at a leading seminary, David Mathewson and Elodie Ballantine Emig help students extend their grasp of Greek for reading and interpreting the New Testament and related writings. The authors make extensive use of New Testament texts to illustrate each grammatical category.

Long enough to provide substantial help yet concise enough for frequent practical use, this book is ideal for intermediate Greek and Greek exegesis classes. It is also a valuable resource for preachers and other interpreters. Contents Introduction 1. The Cases 2. Pronouns 3. Adjectives 4. The Article 5. Prepositions 6. The Greek Verb System 7.

Regarding gender relations, the evangelical world is divided between complementarians and egalitarians. While both perspectives have much to contribute, the discussion has reached a stalemate. Michelle LeeBarnewall critiques both sides of the debate, challenging the standard premises and arguments and offering new insight into a perennially divisive issue in the church. She brings fresh biblical exegesis to bear on our cultural situation, presenting an alternative way to move the discussion forward. Endorsements "Imagine using core biblical themes like corporateness, servant leadership, mutuality, and unity to discuss issues of the relationship of men and women to one another in the church. Imagine focusing not on power or rights but on the example of Christ. If you imagine reframing the gender discussion in helpful ways, then you will be interested in Neither Complementarian nor Egalitarian. When one serves while leading and pays special attention to corporate versus individual themes, things are transformed from the way the world (and sometimes the way the church on both sides of the debate) talks about them. Read this book no matter which side of the debate you are on­­and think afresh." --Darrell L. Bock, Dallas Theological Seminary "The church's debate over gender and leadership has become an intractable problem because we have adopted the model of the world, where leadership is about equality, rights, privilege, power, and position. Michelle Lee-Barnewall calls for a radical paradigm shift that adopts the upside-down values of the kingdom of God, where humility, love, service, unity, and responsibility replace power, privilege, and position as the guiding principles for true servant leadership. If put into practice, this book would transform not only the gender debate but also the prevailing model for all Christian leadership."--Mark L. Strauss, Bethel Seminary San Diego "In a debate often polarized by shrill rhetoric, Lee-Barnewall rightly urges us instead to take each passage and argument on its own terms and to put kingdom principles first. Regardless of whether one agrees with every detail of Lee-Barnewall's reconstruction, her spirit and larger vision offer a constructive way forward, including a willingness to hear and learn from those with whom we may not agree on every point."--Craig S. Keener, Asbury Theological Seminary

The Lost Letters of Pergamum A Story from the New Testament World, 2nd ed. Bruce W. Longenecker
This fascinating novel portraying a Roman citizen's spiritual transformation offers a fresh, engaging, and creative way to learn about the New Testament world. The first edition has been widely used in the classroom. With improved readability and narrative flow, the second edition will bring the social and political world of Jesus and his first followers to life for many more students of the Bible. Praise for the First Edition "A creative and enjoyable story that is true to much of what we know about early Christianity in its environment. The narrative both teaches and engages the imagination as to how events in late firstcentury Pergamum might have happened."--Carolyn Osiek, Brite Divinity School "Longenecker's Letters present in a fascinating and compelling way the contexts of Second Temple Judaism and Greco-Roman urban life. And the narrative he weaves is not only believable but also engaging, both academically and personally. This untraditional presentation deserves a wide readership among all concerned more traditionally with the ethos of New Testament backgrounds."--Joel B. Green, Fuller Theological Seminary "A savvy and creative introduction to the New Testament world, disguised as a collection of `lost' letters between Luke and several wellpositioned members of Roman society. The genius of the book lies in its fusion of current New Testament scholarship with a very plausible, personal narrative."--Bruce Fisk, Westmont College "This fictional correspondence is not true, but it certainly could have been. Longenecker writes a very engaging account of several characters who, in their different ways, came to experience and respond to the risen Jesus Christ through Luke's narrative. I was especially moved by the character of Antipas as he is ennobled by being transformed from a Roman dignitary into a model of Christian selfsacrifice."--Stanley E. Porter, McMaster Divinity College "The book will be particularly useful to those beginning NT studies and wanting to get into the NT world."--David Wenham, Themelios "This book could be used nicely as a supplementary text for a college or seminary New Testament class."--Robert L. Plummer, Southern Baptist Journal of Theology "The fictional and factual weave should spark imaginations and substantive discussions."--Fred W. Burnett, Religious Studies Review

He is the author or coauthor of numerous books, including The Lost Letters of Pergamum; Thinking through Paul: A Survey of His Life, Letters, and Theology ; and The Cross before Constantine: The Early Life of a Christian Symbol.
Two respected senior New Testament scholars examine cultural context and theological meaning in Philippians and Philemon in this addition to the well-received Paideia series. Paideia commentaries explore how New Testament texts form Christian readers by attending to the ancient narrative and rhetorical strategies the text employs, showing how the text shapes theological convictions and moral habits, and making judicious use of maps, photos, and sidebars in a reader-friendly format. Students, pastors, and other readers will appreciate the historical, literary, and theological insight offered in this practical commentary.

He reads Acts as strictly historical in aim and detail and does so with a lack of rancor and polemic that invites all to ponder his conclusions. If for no other reason, the richness of detail and depth of immersion in primary sources guarantee a long and honored life for these volumes."--Richard I. Pervo, author of Acts: A Commentary (Hermeneia) "This is a remarkable scholarly achievement that will be eagerly used by a wide range of readers." --I. Howard Marshall, University of Aberdeen Acts, 4 vols., is a Christianity Today 2016 Book Award Winner

Invitation to the Septuagint, 2nd ed. Karen H. Jobes and Moisйs Silva This second edition has been substantially revised, expanded, and updated to reflect major advances in Septuagint studies. Endorsements "Invitation proposes a full tour of Septuagint studies. All aspects of the ancient Greek version are explored, with extensive examples and discussion of scholarly approaches. The first edition, whose excellent reputation is entirely deserved, will be superseded by this second edition. This book merits a place in the library of anyone seriously interested in the study of the Bible."--Jan Joosten, University of Oxford "Since the first edition of Jobes and Silva's groundbreaking introduction, research on and interest in the Septuagint has increased dramatically. This new edition has incorporated the most up-to-date scholarship in the same informed and accessible style as the first. This volume should be on the shelf of all who are interested in this corpus."--Benjamin G. Wright, Lehigh University

Inspiration and Incarnation Evangelicals and the Problem of the Old Testament, 2nd ed. Peter Enns This tenth anniversary edition includes an updated bibliography and a substantive postscript that reflects on the reception of the first edition. Endorsements "Peter Enns has done the evangelical church an immense service by challenging preconceived notions of what the Bible ought to be by insisting on building his high view of Scripture on what God intended Scripture to be. One does not have to agree with all his conclusions to understand why this book has helped and will continue to help many people to embrace Scripture as God's Word to us."--Tremper Longman III, Westmont College "A superb resource. This second edition, with its profound concluding reflections on the nature of Scripture after ten years of responses to the first edition, promises to be even more effective in helping students of the Bible appreciate more fully the inscripturated Word made flesh."--Richard Middleton, Northeastern Seminary, Roberts Wesleyan College

Conversion in Luke-Acts Divine Action, Human Cognition, and the People of God Joel B. Green "Joel Green takes our understanding of repentance and conversion in Luke-Acts, and indeed the whole New Testament, to a new level of methodological sophistication. He delves into important aspects of modern cognitive studies and theory as a tool for understanding human experience and concludes that repentance/conversion (rightly regarded as synonymous) must be viewed as a holistic, embodied phenomenon. Green also correctly emphasizes that conversion is not just a once-for-all experience but rather constitutes the beginning of a lifelong journey within the context of the faith community."--David Aune, University of Notre Dame "Joel Green offers a fresh account of conversion in Luke-Acts that is exegetically fruitful and eminently readable. Green's cognitive approach expertly explores the communal, embodied nature of Lukan conversion and examines passages both expected and unexpected along the way. Students and scholars alike will find Green's navigation of Luke's narrative theology of conversion a welcome read."--Brittany E. Wilson, Duke University Divinity School

"It is a wonder and a gift to have a systematic theologian slow down and focus attention on the particularity of biblical texts. No one doing theology can do that more effectively than Charry, who considers the Psalms in their ancient orbit but draws them boldly toward contemporaneity for Christian readers."--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary "A very thoughtful, theological reflection on the Psalter. Truly to be commended is the seriousness with which Charry takes up the settings provided by the Psalm titles themselves as well as the questions raised by Jewish and Christian interpreters over the centuries. In this way, the commentary allows the theological depth of the Psalter to open up new vistas for the religious life."--Gary A. Anderson, University of Notre Dame

"This is a book of strategies--strategies for increasing one's working vocabulary, strategies for developing fluency and even immediacy in reading the Greek text, strategies for analyzing sentences to understand their constituent parts and internal relations, strategies for overcoming (at last!) the divide between academic study of the Greek text and devotional appropriation. The person who employs these strategies, even selectively, will assuredly drink more deeply of what the biblical text has to offer those who read it in its own Mother Tongue."--David A. deSilva, Ashland Theological Seminary "Long known as a master in the essential profession of teaching Koine Greek, Whitacre has done what very few can. Here is a primer for reading Greek fluently. The work is filled with helpful explanations of complex matters, useful examples, detailed application of the principles taught, and extensive footnotes with pathways to more advanced study. I will be using and recommending this pedagogical tour de force for years to come!"--Scott Hafemann, University of St. Andrews

Intrusive God, Disruptive Gospel Encountering the Divine in the Book of Acts Matthew L. Skinner "Matthew Skinner probes the book of Acts in an impressively effective way. He successfully negotiates the vexed issue of history and theology and offers a concise, accessible theological twist to every text he considers. His study shows the way in which the narrative text of Acts continues to be compelling for the church's self-understanding and mission."--Walter Brueggemann, Columbia Theological Seminary "There is no doubt that Acts is an entertaining read, but what is a twenty-first-century Christian to do with such an unusual collection of stories? Enter Matthew Skinner, an internationally renowned scholar of Acts who has, for decades now, immersed himself in Acts. Skinner grips our attention, all of it, as he honestly and artfully connects our experience with the book of Acts. Chapter by chapter, Skinner teaches us, raises crucial questions, and then offers bold conclusions born from his observations as both a scholar and a Christian."--Jaime Clark-Soles, Perkins School of Theology, Southern Methodist University
