This introduction to the interpretation of Acts encourages in-depth study of the text, and genuine grappling with the theological and historical questions raised, by providing a 'map' to the book as a whole, and to key interpreters and interpretative debates. It draws on a range of methodological approaches (author-, text- and reader-centred), as complementary rather than mutually exclusive ways of interpreting the text. In particular, it reflects the growing scholarly attention to the reception history of biblical texts, increasingly viewed as a vital aspect of interpretation rather than an optional extra.
