For almost 300 years, the dominant trend in New Testament interpretation has been to read the Acts of the Apostles as a document that argues for the political possibility of harmonious co-existence between Rome and the early Christian movement. Kavin Rowe argues that the time is long overdue for a sophisticated, critically constructive reappraisal. A brilliant piece of work by a young scholar of considerable promise. --First Things This well-written, well-argued book is a must read for New Testament scholars. -- Review of Biblical Literature This sophisticated argument offers a comprehensive vision of Acts and deserves a wide readership. -- Religious Studies Review There is so much happening in these pages that a slow and careful read will provoke sustained thoughts on a variety of subjects of ecclesial interest ranging from Christianity and culture to issues of tolerance and political theology. -- Themelios
