With this postdoc project, I continue my PhD research on the book of Acts with a focus on contributing to the BEST conferences in the current programme on the discriminating love of God. Interestingly, the book of Acts does not speak about God as someone who loves. Moreover, an important aspect of the theology of Acts is that God does not discriminate. Thus, the book of Acts provides something of a corrective to the idea of the programme that the discriminating love of God is a central tenet of the biblical view of God. At the same time, the theme of God’s discriminating love provides an incentive to look at how the book of Acts does speak about God’s involvement with the world and with humans, and how God’s non-discrimination relates to statements about God’s ordaining people for salvation (apparently not ordaining others, although this is not made explicit in Acts).
