       When the book of Acts is mentioned, a cluster of issues spring to mind, including speaking in tongues and baptism with the Holy Spirit, church government and practice, and missionary methods and strategies. At the popular level, Acts is more often mined for answers to contemporary debates than heard for its natural inflections.

Instead of using Acts as a prooftext, Alan Thompson brings a biblical-theological framework to the account to expose Luke's major themes as they relate to the book as a whole. With this framework in place Thompson argues, in The Acts of the Risen Lord Jesus [NSBT] that Acts is an account of the 'continuing story' of God's saving purposes. Consequently we find that Luke wants to be read in light of the Old Testament promises and the continuing reign of Christ in the inaugurated kingdom. Read in this way as a snapshot of God's dynamic, unfolding kingdom, the book of Acts begins to regain the deep relevance it had in the first century.

About the SeriesAddressing key issues in biblical theology, the works comprising New Studies in Biblical Theology focus on three areas:

  • the nature and status of biblical theology, including its relationship to other disciplines
  • the articulation and exposition of the structure of thought from a particular biblical writer or text
  • the delineation of a biblical theme across the biblical corpus
  • While volume notes interact with the best of recent research, the text of each work is uncluttered with untransliterated Greek and Hebrew or too much specialist jargon


The volumes are written within the framework of confessional evangelicalism, but they also engage a variety of other relevant viewpoints and significant literature.

Above all, these volumes are creative attempts to help Christians better understand their Bibles. New Studies in Biblical Theology aims simultaneously to instruct and to edify, to interact with current scholarship and to point the way ahead.
