    Luke-Acts in Modern Interpretation

    A biographical and interpretive history of Luke-Acts scholarship

    Luke-Acts in Modern Interpretation explores the lives and work of ten interpreters who have significantly influenced the study of the Lukan writings over the past 150 years. The chapters contain short biographical sketches of the scholars that illuminate their personal and academic lives, summaries and evaluations of their major works, and analysis of the ongoing relevance of their work in contemporary scholarship on Luke-Acts.

    Key thinkers surveyed include the following:
    • Adolf Harnack
    • Martin Dibelius
    • F. F. Bruce
    • Loveday Alexander
    • C. K. Barrett
    • Hans Conzelmann

    An introduction and a conclusion by Stanley Porter and Ron Fay trace the development of Luke-Acts scholarship from the 1870s to the present and examine how these ten scholars' studies have shaped the field. Those invested in understanding the recent history of scholarship on Luke-Acts will find here a valuable deposit of historical insight into biblical studies.
