I. Howard Marshall offers commentary on the book of Acts, showing how it is a history book of the early church, a literary work, the sequel of a work beginning with the Gospel of Luke, and a work of theology. Luke’s purposes are varied. He writes with a pastoral concern. He shows how the essential task of the church is mission. He describes how God does not accept racial discrimination. Luke stresses the work of the Holy Spirit and shows how the church is raised up and directed by God. He believes in the ultimate triumph of the Gospel. These are encouraging and timely messages, even for the church today.
