"Parsons and Pervo argue that singular authorship of Luke and Acts (which they accept) does not automatically imply generic, narrative, and theological 'unity.' Their challenge to rethink each of these issues is concise, well-informed, engagingly written, and should stimulate interesting discussion among students of the Lukan writings."
— Susan R. Garrett, Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary

"Professors Mikeal C. Parsons and Richard I. Pervo are well aware that they are framing the questions rather than seeking to settle issues once and for all. In fact, the importance of their book lies in the challenging questions they address to scholars and students of Luke-Acts. What is the precise understanding of 'Luke-Acts'? Do these two volumes have different genres, different theological constructs, and different 'narrators'?"
— Robert F. O'Toole, S.J., Gregorian University Foundation

"If the history of scholarship proves one thing, it is certainly this, that reiteration of a conclusion does not necessarily establish its validity. Is Acts the sequel of the Gospel of Luke? Many have answered affirmatively, and some without even bothering to ask the question. Professors Parsons and Pervo argue that the two works are independent narratives, each telling the story differently. In the course of their challenge of alleged generic continuity, the authors focus on the early writer's Christology as a fruitful clue to the unity, not of Luke-Acts, but of Luke and Acts."
— Frederick W. Danker, Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago
