The Acts of the Apostles joins the Gospel of Luke with the ministry of Paul. Renowned New Testament
scholar Richard I. Pervo shows how this masterful storyteller worked his magic, drawing on first-century
literary techniques of narration and characterization. Luke's literary skills did not prevent scribes from re-writing
his masterwork, however, the textual tradition of Acts is among the most intriguing of the documents of the
New Testament, and is a focus here.
Elegantly written, Pervo's commentary provides a compelling interpretation of Acts in the context of Hellenistic
literature and the emerging Christian movement, Readers will rediscover the "profit with delight " that was the ideal
of ancient story-tellers.
