'This is a masterful, carefully written and well organised study, fully equal to the high standards already set by this series.' Contemporary Review 'Marguerat's proposals ... are uniformly convincing, and more instant light is shed on Acts than by some indispensable commentaries.' Expository Times '... penetrating personal observations and encyclopaedic enquiry ...'. Reviews in Religion and Theology '... Marguerat's monograph is a mine of exegetical insights ...'. European Journal of Theology '... his is an important voice and should be heard ... this book is an important contribution to Lukan studies.' Themelios 'Marguerat's monograph is a mine of exegetical insights. It illuminates both the detail and overall impact of Luke's narrative.' Journal for the Study of the New Testament
