In the (E)Mail: Logos Bible Software Edition

the-book-of-acts-in-its-first-century-settingThe folks at Logos Bible Software sent along a review copy of the Book of Acts in its First Century Setting. For anyone doing serious work in Acts, this set is a valuable tool. It covers the literary, social, geographical, and historical context of the Book  of Acts. The five volumes in this series are:

The Book of Acts in Its First Century Setting, vol. 1: Ancient Literary Setting
The Book of Acts in Its First Century Setting, vol. 2: Graeco-Roman Setting
The Book of Acts in Its First Century Setting, vol. 3: Paul in Roman Custody
The Book of Acts in Its First Century Setting, vol. 4: Palestinian Setting
The Book of Acts in Its First Century Setting, vol. 5: Diaspora Setting

A curious omission is volume six in the series, Witness to the Gospel: The Theology of Acts—though there is some debate to whether this is volume six of the series or not.

At any rate, look for future posts on this excellent series.
