Acts by Beverley R. Gaventa

Book Description

In a striking departure from customary readings of the Acts of the Apostles as the story of the growth of the church, Gaventa argues that Luke's second volume has to do with nothing less than the activity of God. From the beginning of the story at Jesus' Ascension and extending until well past the final report of Paul's activity in Rome, Luke narrates a relentlessly theological story, in which matters of institutional history or biography play only an incidental role. Gaventa pays careful attention to Luke's story of God, as well as to the numerous characters who set themselves in opposition to God's plan.

Blessed One by Beverley R. Gaventa Blessed One, Paperback (October 2002)

Mary has been largely neglected within the Protestant church. In "Blessed One", widely respected Protestant scholars seek to answer three basic questions: who is Mary?; how does Mary's story intersect with contemporary life?; and what does Mary teach us about God?
