Reviews - What do customers think about Witness to the Gospel: The Theology of Acts (Theology, Biblical Studies)?
A text book that leads you to worship! Jun 21, 2000
I have rarely been brought to a point of worship while reading a theological text book, let alone while preparing for an assignment. But that's what happened reading through this excellent collection of essays on the book of Acts. Renowned New Testament commentator I.H. Marshall has put together a masterly series of perspectives on the wonderful, but often enigmatic, narrative book by Luke outlining the early days of the church. Each writer gives his unique perspective on various aspects of the book, such as historical accuracy, theology, and intended message. Particularly enlightening is Joel B. Green's essay on "God as Saviour", in which he argues that the "witnesses" of Acts are to proclaim not only the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, but also its salvific significance as a work of the God of grace. Says Green on page 39: "Salvation is the coming of the kingdom of God to displace other kingdoms, and entails membership in the new community God is drawing together around Jesus." Keen theological insights and profound expositions of its literary structures make this collection on Acts more than a must-have for any student or teacher of the Biblical text - it is a doxological treat as well. I hope it gets you on your knees like it did me!
