Acts of the Apostles, the fifth book of the New Testament, dealing with the work of Paul, Peter, and the leading Apostles. It is said by some to have been written by the Evangelist Luke. It is the subject of much controversy between theologians, some maintaining its absolute historical accuracy, while others affirm that it was written with the view of reconciling two hostile factions within the church. It has, however, always been admitted by the authorities into the Canon of the New Testament.
