"Reading Acts Today" provides a 'state of the art' view of study of Acts from a variety of perspectives and approaches. It is a fresh and stimulating collection of scholarly essays at the cutting edge of the discipline. The contributions come at "Acts" from many different angles including historical, theological, socio-economic, literary, narrative, and exegetical approaches. This enables a thorough examination of the way that other ancient writings illuminate "Acts" and locates the book in its ancient context. The wide range of contributors features some of the most influential names in modern New Testament studies, providing a remarkable assessment of current scholarship on the book of "Acts". These include James D.G. Dunn, I. Howard Marshal, and Richard Burridge. It was formerly the "Journal for the Study of the New Testament Supplement", a book series that explores the many aspects of New Testament study including historical perspectives, social-scientific and literary theory, and theological, cultural and contextual approaches.

Dr Steve Walton (Trinity College, Bristol, UK), Professor Thomas E. Phillips, Lloyd Keith Pietersen

Thomas E. Phillips is Professor of New Testament and Early Christian Studies at Point Loma Nazarene University, San Diego, USA Lloyd Keith Pietersen received his Ph.D. from the Department of Biblical Studies, University of Sheffield.

The entire publication is very interesting. This is not, as it usually happens in the case of commemorative books, a collection of detailed analyses on a variety of topics, but rather a a general presentation of contemporary research and interpretation of the book of Acts. -- Bartosz Adamczewski, Warsaw * Collectanea Theologica (Bloomsbury Translation) *
