Conflict in Acts

See Richard Fellows' discussion on conflicts in Acts.
I think that Richard is spot on. Acts does not gloss over conflicts, nor does it present a sanitized version of church history. Indeed it can be argued that the conflict passages, like the summary/progress reports, serve an important narratival and theological function(s) within the book.

As often, I think Richard couldn't be wronger. But then, some people say the same about me. ;-)
