Acts Seminar Report. Acts and Christian Beginnings

This link takes you to a description of the Acts Seminar, which is a critical study group similar to the Jesus Seminar that became famous for voting on whether or not they believed that Jesus actually said something recorded in the Gospels.

These seminars are examples of subjective, critical scholarship using the tools of democracy to foster agreement among themselves. They usually date events late, pushing Christian beginnings into the second century. They are a remnant of earlier critics whose views were reined in by the influence of archaeology. The page also includes a link to a review.
