The Oxford Church Text Books series is an exceptional collection of church history and doctrine by early-twentieth-century writers and theologians. Noted authors such as G. H. Box, Leighton Pullan, and A. E. Burn offer over 2, pages of clear and concise prose covering subjects ranging from early church history to doctrine, the sacraments, the Reformation, and more. Luke devotes half of the narrative to Paul, constructing for Christians of a post‐Pauline era an image of this important figure consistent with the stance taken on Jewish and Roman concerns in the book. As a title, Acts of the Apostles is a misnomer, since Peter is the only one of the twelve apostles who receives individualized portrayal.
