RULER L A C R Richard BauckhamThe fourth in the series which takes an in-depth look at thebook of Acts in its ancient setting, this volume examinesLukes account of the Palestinian origins of earlyChristianity. 600 pages, from Eerdmans.

"Working to place the Book of Acts within its first-century setting, well-known historians and biblical scholars from Australia, the United States, Canada, Russia, Germany, France, Israel, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom have collaborated here to provide a stimulating new study that replaces older studies on Acts, including aspects of The Beginnings of Christianity." "The composition of Acts is discussed beside the writing of ancient literary monographs and intellectual biographies. Recent epigraphic and papyrological discoveries also help illumine the text of Acts. Archaeological fieldwork, especially in Greece and Asia Minor, has yielded valuable information about the local setting of Acts and the religious life of urban communities in the Roman Empire. These volumes draw on the best of this research to elucidate the Book of Acts against the background of activity in which early Christianity was born." "The Book of Acts in Its Palestinian Setting is devoted to a series of studies of those parts of the narrative of Acts that are specifically set in Palestine. The geographical, political, cultural, social, and religious aspects of first-century Jewish Palestine are all explored in order to throw light on Luke's account of the Palestinian origins of early Christianity. There are fresh assessments of the historical significance of key features, persons, and events in Luke's narrative."--BOOK JACKET. Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Richard Bauckham (Ed)

Professor Richard Bauckham (Ph.D. Cambridge; D.D, F.B.A) was professor of New Testament studies and Bishop Wardlaw Professor at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland. He is a fellow of both the British Academy and the Royal Society of Edinburgh. Prof. Bauckham has published widely in theology, historical theology and New Testament. He is currently working on New Testament Christology and the Gospel of John.
Prof. Bauckham's originality in defending both the historical Jesus and his divine identity has set a new standard in the academic world, most notably in his groundbreaking publications Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony and Jesus and the God of Israel: "God Crucified" and Other Essays on the New Testament's Christology of Divine Identity


After his acclaimed and award winning commentary on Jude, 2 Peter (Word Biblical Commentary) and his interest in the Gospel of John, the arrival of his The Gospel of John in both the New International Greek New Testament Commentary and in Two Horizons New Testament Commentary Series, as well as edited works on John, The Gospel of John and Christian Theology and The Testimony of the Beloved Disciple: Narrative, History, and Theology in the Gospel of John, along with his volume on The Gospel of Luke (International Critical Commentary series) is much anticipated.


His other published works cover a wide scope such as Jurgen Moltmann, James and Jude the brothers of Jesus, Gospel Woman, Mission, the Bible and Politics, Apocalyptic and Eschatology in the Tudor Period, the Book of Revelation, and the Christian Hope.
