Summary/Abstract: The passage of Acts 16:6-10 is analyzed according to the method of Narrative Criticism. The insistence on the Spirit shows that Paul and his companions are guided by God; but the narrator does not make explicit how. The vision of the Macedonian points the way to go. But when the will of God is clarified, there is a shift from the narrator’s voice to the characters’ voice and the account gives access to the perception of God filtered by their conscience. It follows that the believing conscience of the implied reader is urged.
