The speeches in Acts
Lieferbar innerhalb von 2-3 Tagen
This historical reappraisal of the Acts of the Apostles, written in narrative form, allows the reader to understand the biblical author's worldview, historical and ideological assumptions, and purposes as they were communicated through portions of this work. Marion Soards analyzes the speech texts by comparing them to writings from ancient history, rhetoric, and midrashic interpretation of scripture. He points out the interesting features in the speeches and highlights the thematic similarities. Soards provides a clear picture of the manner of writings in Acts, the theology, and the encompassing history of the early Christian period, and he supplies a sound basis for contemporary Jewish-Christian relations.
PortraitMarion L. Soards is Professor of New Testament at Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky. He is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A).
