Book Description

1 July 2014
In this volume Mikeal C. Parsons provides an overview of Luke and Acts, reading Luke and Acts in the context of ancient rhetorical criticism as practiced in the Hellenistic world. Parsons first compares Luke's storytelling with narrative techniques of ancient rhetoric. He next compares Luke's interpretation of Jewish sources within the social conventions of Luke's day. Finally, Parsons profiles Luke's specific evangelistic theological artistry, one in which Luke creatively uses Isaiah to call for the conversion of the Gentiles. The depth and breadth of Parson's chapters root Luke's narrative strategy, interpretive moves, and theological imagination in the pagan, Jewish, and Christian contexts of the period.

Product Description

Review

"Parsons offers the seminary student or advanced undergraduate a detailed introduction to Luke as author within three ancient contexts: pagan, Jewish, and emerging Christian." -- Kindalee P DeLong, Pepperdine University, Religious Studies Review Parsons incisive and challenging interpretations should move the field of Lucan studies forward on several important fronts, notably in terms of method and theology. This book will make an excellent addition to required reading lists for graduate courses on Luke and Acts. -- John A Darr, Boston College, Catholic Biblical Quarterly "Parsons' characterizations of the author as storyteller, interpreter, and evangelist allows him not only to focus on the authors major functions but also to call attention to the significance of rhetorical techniques and their bearing on the meaning of Lukes narrative." -- Joseph B Tyson, Professor Emeritus of Religious Studies, Southern Methodist University Parsons is doing creative work and this work should not be ignored by his fellow scholars. -- Robert C Tannehill, Methodist Theological School in Ohio, The Review of Biblical Literature
