A Comic Wake: Extrapolations from Acts' offers two essays exploring themes from the New Testament writings known as Acts. The first essay, "Comedy of Christian Faith" explores the nature of comedy, finding parallels in many dynamics of Christian faith and identity.
The second essay, "In the Wake of Acts" explores an absence of mourning as a cultural phenomenon in the early Christian community in Acts, and asks what this might indicate regarding Christian faith and hope.
These essays will appeal to those of Christian faith traditions interested in the dynamics of experience in scripture, and to those looking to engage thoughtfully with theological themes.
Dr. Stephen Curkpatrick is an Australian academic.
These two essays were original published in Suci Iman Akademis Dan Praktis: Jurnal Teologi.
