From the Publisher

This book offers a clear, thoughtful portrait of early Christian understandings of leadership by studying Paul’s speech at Miletus (Acts 20.18b-35). Dr. Walton compares the picture found there with Luke’s presentation of Jesus’ model of leadership and Paul’s self-portrait in 1 Thessalonians. It will assist scholars in considering Luke’s portrait of Paul in Acts by providing helpful criteria for identifying parallel ideas, as well as by showing that Luke and Paul are very close in their understanding of how Christian leaders are to lead.
