“Contemporary studies of the Acts of the Apostles rarely engage in an attempt to sort out those elements in the book that may be regarded as genuinely historical. Gerd Lüdemann, however, intentionally takes up this task. He refrains from making any kinds of wholesale judgments about Acts, regarding it neither as totally fictional nor fully factual. Instead, he examines each of the individual narratives, searching for the redactional and traditional elements and making judgments about the historical validity of each one. Luedemann’s is an important study that is sure to be widely discussed among scholars of Acts.”
