About "The Kingdom According to Luke and Acts"
:This substantial, reliable introduction examines the character and purpose of Luke and Acts and provides a thorough yet economical treatment of Luke's social, historical, and literary context. Karl Allen Kuhn presents Luke's narrative as a "kingdom story" that both announces the arrival of God's reign in Jesus and narrates the ministry of the early church, revealing the character of the kingdom as dramatically at odds with the kingdom of Rome. He explores the techniques Luke employs to create his impressively crafted and rhetorically charged narrative, covering the background, literary features, plotting, and thematic emphases of Luke and Acts while also incorporating the freshest approaches.
