Nijay’s SBL 2023 Book Picks (Gospels and Acts)

Nijay’s SBL 2023 Book Picks (Gospels and Acts) November 14, 2023

It’s that time of the year, where introverted scholars from all over the world head to one place to geek out on books and new research. Whether you are going or not, publishers often advertise special sale prices during the end of the year. So, I will be doing a short blog series on my “book picks” to check out this year. The first category is Gospels and Acts.


First up, Frank Dicken’s Reading Luke, a concise guide to studying the Third Gospel.

Also, a page-turner from Holly Carey, this is an incredibly insightful book about women disciples in the gospels.

On Acts, check out Joy Vaughan’s work on spiritual phenomena.

Last, but not least, Mike Bird’s latest:

Not out yet, but coming in early 2024, Patrick Schreiner’s study of the Transfiguration, looks stellar.
