4.0 out of 5 stars A FINE COMMENTARY, 3 Aug 2011
This review is from: The Acts of the Apostles (A Socio-Rhetorical Commentary) (Paperback)
Ben Witherington III has the rare ability to write in an easy to read style about complex issues.
He manages to defend the reliability of Luke's account against all critics, and provides wonderfully clear historical background to the account.
His forte is combining the historical and social setting with the rhetorical style of the work, with many helpful insights.
What a delightful read this book would be, if all the interaction with critics could be omitted and just the positive historical/theological material was left. It would also be about half the length!
Some knowledge of Greek would be helpful, but certainly isn't essential.
4* may seem miserly for such a fine commentary, but I withheld the full score as the commentary makes no attempt to cover application.
