Restoring the Kingdom: The Role of God as the "Ordainer of Times and Seasons" in the Acts of the Apostles by Michael A. Salmeier

In the book of Acts divine involvement is everywhere. From the beginning God is responsible for promised action, including the geographic expansion--in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth (1:7)--referenced in Jesus' response to the disciples, clearly related to Luke's purpose in writing the book. Geographic expansion, however, is only the second part of Jesus' reply. Is it possible that the first half of Jesus' reply--It is not for you to know the times or dates the Father has set by his own authority--has even greater bearing on the actions that follow and on Luke's purpose? Is the Father setting times and seasons related to the kingdom's establishment? Does this phrase explain the conspicuous divine involvement throughout the plot? In Restoring the Kingdom, Michael Salmeier answers these questions in the affirmative by exploring Luke's characterization of God in three strands: God as the King who establishes and restores Israel's king, who establishes his people, and who directs events. This unfolds Luke's purpose in assuring the reader concerning the events that have taken place, helping to more fully illuminate Luke's theology concerning God and his kingdom.
