This excellent book shows how literary criticism illuminates the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles, reclaiming them as biblical narrative. William Kurz explores literary aspects such as implied authors or readers, plot, and assumed information, or gaps. He then highlights the role of the narrator, who is the primary key to the focus and perspective of the narrative. Kurz also discovers an implicit commentary in Luke--Acts. Finally, he traces the implications of reading Luke--Acts as canonical Scripture and the merits of literary methods.

William S. Kurz is Professor of New Testament at Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He has written several theological books, inlcuding Following Jesus: A Disciple's Guide to Luke and Acts and Farewell Addresses in the New Testament.
