Fifteen years in the making, this comprehensive commentary by David Peterson offers thorough exegesis and exposition of the Acts of the Apostles, drawing on recent scholarship in the fields of narrative criticism and theological analysis, incorporating insights into historical-social background, and investigating why Luke presents his material the way he does. / In view of how long the book of Acts is over a thousand verses Peterson s commentary is admirably economical yet meaty. As D. A. Carson notes in his editor s preface, Peterson s judgments are always sane, evenhanded, and judicious. Even while exploring exegetical details, Peterson constantly scans the horizon, keeping the larger picture in mind. With its solid exegesis, astute theological analysis, and practical contemporary application, Peterson s Acts of the Apostles is a commentary that preachers, teachers, and students everywhere will want and need. / Here in one convenient volume is the basic introductory information and verse-by-verse exegesis that New Testament students and preachers need in order to understand the second part of Luke s account of Christian beginnings. This commentary is noteworthy for its incorporation of a full essay on the theology of Acts and its careful attention to theological issues in the course of the exposition; at the same time it does not neglect historical and literary matters. I warmly commend this useful tool for study. I. Howard Marshall / University of Aberdeen / David Peterson interacts with Acts scholarship fairly and in an up-to-date way; his literary and historical conclusions are well informed and sound. His introduction airs issues thoroughly, yet the entire work is easy to follow. Peterson consistently engages the cohesive, larger picture and the theological message of the book. Craig S. Keener / Palmer Theological Seminary

I have been using John Stott's, Acts New International Biblical Commentary, and some other one volume commentaries. They are lacking of some details esp in exegesis about the texts. But this one is ... Read full review
