This groundbreaking work by Darrell Bock thoroughly explores the theology of Luke s gospel and the book of Acts. In his writing, Luke records the story of God working through Jesus to usher in a new era of promise and Spirit-enablement so that the people of God can be God s people even in the midst of a hostile world. It is a message the church still needs today. Bock both covers major Lukan themes and sets forth the distinctive contribution of Luke-Acts to the New Testament and the canon of Scripture, providing readers with an in-depth and holistic grasp of Lukan theology in the larger context of the Bible.
I. Howard Marshall A remarkable achievement that should become the first port of call for students in this central area of New Testament Theology.
Craig S. Keener Bock s excellent exploration of Luke s theological approach and themes meets an important need in Lukan theology. "
