St. Luke's Missiology
A Cross-Cultural Challenge
Harold E. Dollar

Luke’s writings make up over one-fourth of the New Testament. Yet, despite an array of research, studies of Luke and Acts frequently miss the missiological contributions that Luke makes to the story of early Christianity. Accordingly, St. Luke’s Missiology explores many of the fundamental contributions of Luke’s two-volume work as he tells how a small Jewish sect became a worldwide movement in just one generation.

Although this work focuses on Acts, part one discusses the essential unity of the two volumes. Part two considers key events that shape the church’s mission to the Gentiles. The final section highlights several applications for missiological practice.

Luke narrates the history of the Christian movement from a divine perspective. His story of how the gospel moves from the particular to the universal gives insight into the missiological dynamics of early Christianity and provides models for the church and missions today.


  • This is a very timely study. In many ways the theological perspectives of Luke-Acts are a central focus of contemporary biblical scholarship… I am profoundly grateful to Professor Dollar for the careful scholarship that enabled him to produce so solid and insightful a contribution to mission theology.
    Dr. Arthur F. GlasserProfessor Emeritus School of MissionFuller Theological Seminary
  • In the present climate of scholarly specialization. Professor Dollar offers us an exemplary integrative study. His missiological conclusions are weighty because they are firmly anchored in careful, multi-dimensional biblical scholarship. His biblical conclusions are relevant because they are enriched by missiological reflection.
