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.

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 Lukes 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.
If Acts was written primarily for the edification of believes and the encouragement of gospel ministry beyond the apostolic period, as many argue, how did Luke use his sources to achieve that purpose? David Peterson here seeks to answer that question. He focuses especially on the way narrative and speeches are employed to express theology and appeal to readers. A lengthy introduction summarizes and interacts with a range of scholarly views on Lukes work. Peterson also provides a thematic study of some of the main theological emphases of Luke-Acts.
Providing not only extensive engagement with hermeneutical issues and incorporation of insights on Greco-Roman background, but also guidelines for contemporary application of Lukes material, The Acts of the Apostles will prove extremely relevant for any preacher or teacher of Luke-Acts.
David GoughAlexandria, VAAge: 55-65Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Excellent volume on Acts!January 5, 2011David GoughAlexandria, VAAge: 55-65Gender: maleDavid Peterson's commentary of the Book of Acts is a welcome addition to the Pillar New Testament Commentary series. Having relied on Bruce's work in the NICNT series for many years, I am delighted to find that Peterson offers a fresh perspective of this often misunderstood book of Scripture. His introduction of nearly 100 pages is worth reading before entering his exposition of the book that serves as a bridge between the foundational and doctrinal sections of the New Testament. His Greek exegesis is sound but not overwhelming. The Pillar series seems destined to become the standard, rivaling--if not replacing--the NICNT in the near future. Highly recommended!
Padunkiaet5 Stars Out Of 5March 6, 2010PadunkiaetI 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 outstanding and worth its weight in gold!!!. I think it is even better than Acts (Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament) by Darrell Bock.
