create worlds of meaning, and invite readers to enter them. When readers enter such
textual worlds, which are often strange and complex, they are confronted with
theological claims. With this in mind, the purpose of the Interpreting Biblical
Texts series is to help serious readers in their experience of reading and
interpreting by providing guides for their journeys into textual worlds. The
controlling perspective is expressed in the operative word of the
title--interpreting. The primary focus of the series is not so much on the world
behind the texts or out of which the texts have arisen as on the worlds created by
the texts in their engagement with readers.
In keeping with the goals of the series, this volume provides an introductory guide to readers of the New Testament books of Luke and Acts. It focuses on both the synchronic and diachronic dimensions of the literature in an effort to acquaint readers with literary, historical, and theological issues that will facilitate interpretation of these important books.
F. Scott Spencer is Professor of New Testament at Baptist Theological Seminary at Richmond.
