Overview

In this volume, an internationally renowned historian of Christian doctrine offers a theological reading of Acts. Now in paper.

"[A] significant commentary. . . . Pelikan asks big questions: what is sin? what were the earliest creeds? what is the nature of apostleship? He is sensitive to nuances of Greek but not obsessed by them. As such, this book will be helpful to preachers and, to a lesser extent, general readers who are sometimes flummoxed by more specialized and technical biblical commentaries."
--Publishers Weekly

New series volumes will continue to release in cloth, but as older volumes reprint, they will release in paper.
