In analysing the literary nature of the book of Acts, Gaventa focuses upon how characters are introduced, and the repetition or neglect of various storylines and characters. Her commentary offers fresh approaches and insights into New Testament studies.

- Publisher The Abingdon New Testament Commentaries series offers compact, critical commentaries on the writings of the New Testament. These commentaries are written with special attention to the needs and interests of theology students, but they will also be useful for students in upper-level college or versity settings, as well as for pastors and other church leaders. In this ANTC commentary, Gaventa focuses on the literary nature of Acts: the details of narration, how characters are introduced, and the repetition or neglect of various storylines and characters. For a book on which much ink has been spilled, this commentary offers fresh approaches and insights.

- Publisher In a striking departure from customary readings of the Acts of the Apostles as the story of the growth of the church, Gaventa argues that Luke's second volume has to do with nothing less than the activity of God. From the beginning of the story at Jesus' Ascension and extending until well past the final report of Paul's activity in Rome, Luke narrates a relentlessly theological story, in which matters of institutional history or biography play only an incidental role. Gaventa pays careful attention to Luke's story of God, as well as to the numerous characters who set themselves in opposition to God's plan.
