Fortress Press Studies in Luke/Acts offers five volumes of in-depth scholarly analysis of the Gospel of Luke and Acts. Conflict in Luke provides a literary analysis of three structured themes in the Gospel. Editor K. C. Hanson’s The Book of Acts compiles 11 essays written by twentieth-century German theologian Martin Dibelius—an early pioneer in New Testament form criticism—and provides contemporary discussions of Dibelius’ views. Robert Tannehill’s two-volume analysis on narrative rhetoric in Luke-Acts shows how repetitions of ideas and formal structures contribute to—and enhance—the author’s message. The Past as Legacy completes the collection by illustrating how Luke-Acts’ composition and structure may have been influenced by heroic or historical epics like The Epic of Gilgamesh and the Odyssey.
The Logos Bible Software edition of Fortress Press Studies in Luke/Acts is designed to encourage and stimulate your study and understanding of the books’ numerous textual elements. Scripture passages link directly to your English translations and to the original Greek text, and important concepts link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. In addition, you can perform powerful searches by topic and find what other authors, scholars, and theologians have to say about Luke’s and Acts’ composition.
