World Upside Down: Reading Acts in the Graeco-Roman Age

C Kaven Rowe

$39.99

Paperback
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."
