Dr. Martin Mittelstadt, associate professor of New Testament, recently published a book titled Reading Luke-Acts in the Pentecostal Tradition.
In the first study of its kind, Mittelstadt charts the history of Luke-Acts interpretation by way of Pentecostal scholars and offers suggestions for further research among increasingly diverse and global Pentecostal communities.
"I write for fellow Pentecostal scholars and students, clergy and informed lay readers, as well as scholars and students outside of the Pentecostal tradition," said Mittelstadt. He hopes to make Pentecostal contributions toward Lukan scholarship more accessible for Pentecostals and raise the profile of Pentecostal scholarship within the broader academic and church-related communities.

Mittelstadt has been a member of Evangel's faculty since 2000. He holds a Doctor of Philosophy from Marquette University, a Master of Divinity from Providence Theological Seminary, and a Bachelor of Theology from Central Pentecostal College.
In 2004, he published Spirit and Suffering in Luke-Acts: Implications for a Pentecostal Theology.
