THE BOOK OF ACTS AS STORY A Narrative-Critical Study David R. Bauer

This volume helps students understand the historical, literary, and theolog- ical issues of the book of Acts and introduces key concepts in the field of narrative criticism.

“Bauer provides an engaging (and manageable) commentary on the Acts of the Apostles—complete with a sensible orientation to narra- tive criticism and its significance for reading Luke’s second volume. Both students and pastors will benefit from this literary-theological exploration of Luke’s story of the still-active, exalted Lord Jesus.” —JOEL B. GREEN, Fuller Theological Seminary “Here is a volume packed with riches. Bauer’s study showcases bril- liantly the wide-ranging gifts of narrative criticism for interpreting the book of Acts. An outstanding tool for students and scholars alike.” —DOROTHY JEAN WEAVER, Eastern Mennonite Seminary (emerita)

FROM CHRIST TO CHRISTIANITY How the Jesus Movement Became the Church in Less Than a Century James R. Edwards New Testament scholar James Edwards explores how the movement founded by Jesus transformed more in the first seventy-five years after his death than it has in the two thousand years since. “What transformed the Galilean Jesus movement into global Christian- ity? In this concise and readable history of the rise of early Christianity, Edwards looks at the many factors that contributed to this radical transformation. This volume will be enlightening reading for anyone interested in Jesus, Paul, and what became the Christian church.” —STANLEY E. PORTER, McMaster Divinity College, Canada “A valuable alloy of Edwards’s biblical and historical acumen. From Christ to Christianity is a welcome and instructive reminder of the en- during changelessness of the gospel through the vicissitudes of time.” —AMY J. ERICKSON, St. Marks National Theological Centre, Australia
