Dr. Gasque’s monograph is the first complete critical history of Actaforschung to be published. Although many accounts of the history of Jesus research and Gospel criticism have been written, and also surveys of Pauline research, until now no scholar has ever attempted a comprehensive account of the modern study of the Acts of the Apostles.
Although the author begins with the important work of F. Chr. Baur and his associates and gives full weight to German Protestant scholarship, he departs from the traditional pattern by giving an equal hearing to the work of conservative critics and historians, particularly British scholars, whose work has often been neglected in Germany. Contrary to the influential point of view represented by E. Haenchen and H. Conzelmann, Dr. Gasque is inclined to take the historicity of Acts very seriously.
A History of the Criticism of the Acts of the Apostles had its origin as a Ph. D. thesis (1969) written under the supervision of Professor F. F. Bruce at Manchester University, England.
