The venture to the Gentiles and their conversion into the church gave upward push to clash within the early Christian neighborhood. Acts 11:1–18 shows that there has been sincerely dissension over the problem of Peter going to the home of Cornelius and taking part in desk fellowship with him. the difficulty used to be no small topic, because it may have break up the church. How then does Luke painting the answer of the clash? rather than writing a protracted theological treatise, the writer employs the artwork of storytelling. The research of Luke-Acts has lengthy been ruled by means of historical-critical tools, targeting Luke as a historian and theologian. This paintings, in spite of the fact that, proposes a paradigm shift by means of taking a look at Luke as a storyteller. considering the fact that narrative feedback is worried with the paintings of the author as writer and never easily redactor, and because it treats narrative accurately as narrative, the time has come to use the narrative-critical method of Acts 10:1—11:18. This method explores a distinct set of questions: what's the tale of Peter and Cornelius approximately? How is the tale informed? What impression does the tale have at the reader and why?

“Through his use of the rather new narrative-critical process in bible study, Nguyen brings the strong Peter and Cornelius episode alive in a clean manner that is helping us get pleasure from, not just the who, how, and what, but additionally the social context and theological value of this ‘turning aspect’ within the church’s figuring out of itself and mission.”

“By technique of narrative feedback, Nguyen brings new insights to the knowledge of 1 of the foundational occasions of the early church. His paintings isn't just a sign contribution to biblical hermeneutics, marked through good scholarship in either historic and rhetorical research, but additionally to the theology of Christian missions . . . I strongly suggest this publication to humans engaged in biblical and missiological studies.”
—Peter C. Phan, Chair of Catholic Social inspiration, Georgetown University

“The author’s considerate thesis of Luke the pastoral theologian is extra in keeping with how the unique author looked himself than the perennial view of Luke because the historio-theologian. Contextual to the unique viewers, Luke’s robust tale evokes us to trust within the historical artwork of storytelling to bare the gospel to our modern, technology-savvy generation.”
