abstract
This book analyzes Stephen's perfection, both his rhetorical fittingness & Christian tradition concerning the significance of his dying forgiveness prayer. It questions the historicity, underscores Acts' rhetorical violence, and reads Acts against narratives of the martyrdom of James as a means to a richer history of early Jewish-Christian relations.
