Product description

From the Back Cover

Catholic Press Association Book Award Winner

"[Acts] has all the marks of Pelikan's scholarship: a close reading of the Greek text; a verse-by-verse commentary on that text studded with references to the great patristic commentators; and a constant eye on the theological and homiletical possibilities of the text itself, as well as its place in the liturgical life of the church both West and East."
--Lawrence S. Cunningham, America

"The commentary serves as a rich storehouse of information on historical theology, providing [Pelikan] with the opportunity to expound on the intersections of Acts with the major teachings of the church. . . . The book will be of great value to all who are interested in the reception history of Acts and in theological interpretation of biblical texts."
--Shelly Matthews, Catholic Biblical Quarterly

"A fascinating peregrination through the history of Christian thought. . . . Pelikan offer[s] a very selective verse-by-verse theological commentary on Acts that supplements the primary focus of the volume: a series of theological excurses covering a broad range of loci communes. If such is the theological journey one seeks, one would be hard pressed to find a better guide."
--John F. B. Miller, Review of Biblical Literature

"What Jaroslav Pelikan offers us . . . [is] a set of observations on what phrases and passages in Acts might remind us of in the later history of Christian doctrine. As a sampler of vintage Pelikan tidbits, it is a scintillating piece of work, a tour de force in the history of dogma, a kaleidoscope of brilliant reflections by a generous and faithful Christian scholar."
--Brian E. Daley, SJ, Pro Ecclesia

"Pelikan's volume robustly demonstrates what reading enlivened by tradition and dogma can look like. It is a timely invitation to the church and the academy."
--Angus Paddison, International Journal of Systematic Theology

"[Acts] is a tour de force of the history of doctrine, as Pelikan draws in his lifetime to remark upon a vast panoply of subjects."
--Steven J. Koskie, Journal of Theological Interpretation --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
