Book Review: Unmanly Men: Refigurations of Masculinity in Luke–Acts. By Brittany E. Wilson

Wilson offers a careful and thorough investigation that challenges many scholars who claim that the masculinity that weaves through Luke–Acts strengthens elite (masculine) ideals. While she acknowledges in part that Luke–Acts may be relatively elite vis-à-vis other Synoptics, when looked at within the norms of the early Roman principate and the Lukan narrative as a whole, Lukan men are refigured to look distinctively “unmanly” according to those ancient mores.
