Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of ancient author names and terms that are mentioned in the book Convinced that God had Called Us: Dreams, Visions and the Perception of God's Will in Luke-Acts. Dream-visions occur in several crucial passages in Luke-Acts. Divine communication is pervasive throughout Luke and Acts, and dream-visions often serve as the vehicle for this communication. They are, therefore, inherently important for understanding Luke's theology a theology characterized by God's persistent and active involvement in the events of human history. Auditory visionary experiences are numerous and significant in Luke-Acts. This is true particularly of the Holy Spirit's role in Acts. There are several texts in which the Spirit "speaks" to an individual or group.

Keywords: divine communication; dream-visions; Luke's theology
