Item Description...
The author of Acts unwittingly committed a near-perfect crime: He told his story so well that all rival accounts vanished with but the faintest of traces. And thus future generations were left with no documents that recount the history of the early Christian tradition; because Acts is not history. According to Richard Pervo, 'Acts is a beautiful house that readers may happily admire, but it is not a home in which the historian can responsibly live.' Luke did not even aspire to write history but rather told his story to defend the gentile communities of his day as the legitimate heirs of Israelite religion. In The Mystery of Acts, Pervo explores the problem of history in Acts by asking, and answering, the fundamental questions: Who wrote Acts? Where was Acts written? When was Acts written? Why was Acts written? How was Acts written? The result is a veritable tour-de-force that enlighten, entertains, and brings Acts to life.

The Book of Acts is one of the most chaotic ones of the Bible. "The Mystery of Acts: Unraveling Its Story" tries to decipher the code and history of the Book of Acts. Asking the who, what, where, when, why, and how behind this book, "The Mystery of Acts" is enlightening, as understanding the Bible's origins can invaluable in understanding its content. "The Mystery of Acts" is a must for any Biblical scholar, professional or amateur.
 
The Mystery of Acts  Feb 1, 2009
The author is obviously very knowledgable. He needs to hire someone to write for him. One phrase that was constantly appearing: I'll discuss this more later. The writing did not flow. This is not a book of non-academics.
