Luke - Acts : An Introduction to Luke-Acts

Full Product Description

The aim of this study is to introduce readers to the text, texture and context of Luke-Acts by using various approaches currently practiced by biblical scholars. Shillington outlines the methods of biblical interpretation and then shows how they might be applied to the texts in question. Through historical criticism, Shillington looks at and explains questions of authorship, the time and setting of the composition, sources and historical background. Taking a social-science approach, he examines the society and culture of the time. Literary readings include narrative, socio-rhetorical, and audience-response approaches, while theological reading asks how the literary texture and themes of Luke-Acts shape the convictions of Christian communities, past and present. Lastly, Shillington looks at postcolonial and feminist criticism and how they have changed our understanding of these books. In each case, analysis of key texts in Luke-Acts comes to the forefront. Each chapter concludes with a list of further relevant resources, and pertinent review questions. The text is accompanied by charts and diagrams to illustrate key points of language and structure.
