The book of Acts contains the only biblical narrative of the events that occurred in the early church between the early first-century ministry of Jesus and the early to mid-second-century emergence of the Christian apologists. These new investigations into Acts originated from the 2006 and 2007 meetings of the SBL section on ACTS. These essays reexamine the origin and reception of Acts as a document within the larger world of early Christianity. The list of contributors includes both well-established and emerging leaders in Acts studies.

New Testament scholars often proceed with their work as if their methods and areas of inquiry were predetermined. This work provides three important services for New Testament study, and Acts scholarship in particular. First, the work surveys contemporary Acts scholarship on two important topics of the day: the genre of Acts and issues of wealth and poverty in Luke-Acts. Second, this volume provides a careful analysis of the process of interpretation and calls for greater self-awareness among critical readers of Acts. Third, this book urges scholars to open themselves to new and broader areas of inquiry in the study of Acts.
