THE Acts of the Apostles through the Centuries is a commentary by Heidi Hornik and Mikeal Parsons on the reception history of Acts. The work of 11 key theologians (from St John Chrysostom to Dietrich Bonhoeffer) forms the bulk of the book, though many others are also mentioned (Wiley Blackwell, £65 (£58.50); 978-1-4051-7635-4).

In Paul and his Friends in Leadership: How they changed the world, Paul Barnett focuses on 24 figures active in mission with St Paul, and hopes to inspire today’s church leaders (Bible Reading Fellowship, £7.99 (£7.20); 978-0-85746-544-3).

Andrew Mbuvi seeks divers­ity of viewpoints though postcolonial read­ings, in A New Covenant Comment­ary, Jude and 2 Peter (Lutterworth Press, £15; 978-0-7188-9308-8).
