Yet readings of Acts typically ignore or marginalise geographys contribution to the construction of the narratives theology. In this book Matthew Sleeman argues that Jesus ascension into heaven is foundational for establishing the spatiality of Acts, showing that the narratives understanding of place and space is shaped decisively by Christs heavenly location.

Drawing on recent advances in geographical theory, Sleeman offers a spatial interpretation that expands our vision of how space and place inform the theological impulses of Acts. Presenting a complement to conventional temporal readings of Acts, he sheds new light on the theology of the book, and suggests new ways of reading not only Acts but also other New Testament texts. Sleemans work combines innovative biblical scholarship with accessible and informative geographical analysis, and is suitable for those with research and teaching interests in human geography or biblical studies.
