This festschrift in honour of Professor F. F. Bruce has contributions on Acts considered as an historical document, on the significance of the preface to Luke and the kerygma in Acts, on the journey-motif in Luke-Acts, with some archaeological observations on Paul's first missionary journey, on the resurrection in Acts, on some Semitisms in Acts, on the role of the Christian Prophet described in Acts, and on the connexion between ancient astrological geography and the list of those "out of every nation under heaven" who first heard the gospel on the day of Pentecost.
A further section of the book concentrates on Paul—his conversion, his Christology, his missionary preaching, his attitude to the Law, the part played by revelation and tradition, apostles before and after Paul's time—and also provides contributions on specific passages of Romans, Corinthians, Philippians, Timothy and on the Captivity Epistles generally. A third section discusses the Chi-Rho sign, its origin and significance, some "Acts" and "Epistles" in apocryphal literature, and comes down to the present in a consideration of the first chapter of Romans and the modern missionary movement.
This wide variety of contributions from scholars in three continents is now made available to the large circle of readers who will wish to join in birthday felicitations to Professor Bruce and to wish him many more happy and fruitful years.
