This groundbreaking commentary is the first to provide a detailed social and rhetorical analysis of the book of Acts. Ben Witherington draws on the best new insights from a number of disciplines to provide readers with the benefits of recent innovative ways of analyzing the text of Acts. In addition, Witherington gives detailed attention to major theological and historical issues, including the relationship of Acts to the Pauline letters, the question of early Christian history and how the church grew and developed, the tension between first-century Judaism and early Christianity, and the relationship between the new believers and the officials of the Roman Empire.
