about

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 overduefor a sophisticated, critically constructive reappraisal.
C. Kavin Rowe is Assistant Professor of New Testament at Duke University Divinity School.

Editorial Reviews

"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." --Themelios
