In this widely-acclaimed study, Dr Esler makes extensive use of sociology and anthropology to examine the author of Luke Acts' theology as a response to social and political pressures upon the Christian community for whom he was writing. As well as interesting those concerned with prevalent developments in New Testament scholarship, Esler's book offers a New Testament paradigm for those interested in generating a theology attuned to the social and political realities affecting the twentieth-century Christian congregations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Esler's thesis is undoubtedly one of the freshest to appear on Luke-Acts in recent years, clearly and compellingly written, complementing bold hypotheses with a wealth of detailed research and observation, and providing a careful justification of the sociological approach and an interesting application of sociological techniques and models ... provocative and challenging [it] represents a significant new approach to Lucan studies.' Journal of Theological Studies
'This book represents a significant advance in the study of the social and community setting of Luke-Acts, and repays careful reading.' Theology
'A brilliant attempt to pinpoint the purpose of Luke-Acts.' The Bible Today
