Praise for previous volumes in the series
"The editors could not have found a more qualified person to probe the thick pages of the history of interpretation and Christian doctrine [in "Acts"]. One might expect a wooden catalog of ancient comments . . . but Pelikan serves up richer fare. Drawing on a stunning array of theological writings, he looks beyond the text of Acts to themes and ultimately dogmas hovering over the text. . . . For many [readers], general editor Reno's vision for the Brazos series will be satisfied: 'We must rehabilitate our exegetical imaginations.'" --James Howell, "Christian Century"
"["Acts"] has all the marks of Pelikan's scholarship: a close reading of the Greek text; a verse-by-verse commentary on that text studded with references to the great patristic commentators; and a constant eye on the theological and homiletical possibilities of the text itself, as well as its place in the liturgical life of the church both West and East." --Lawrence S. Cunningham, "America"
"What Jaroslav Pelikan offers us [in "Acts"] . . . is neither a commentary nor a book of homilies, but rather a set of observations on what phrases and passages in Acts might remind us of in the later history of Christian doctrine. As a sampler of vintage Pelikan tidbits, it is a scintillating piece of work, a tour de force in the history of dogma, a kaleidoscope of brilliant reflections by a generous and faithful Christian scholar." --Brian E. Daley, SJ, "Pro Ecclesia"
