Publisher's Description

In the book of Acts the story of Jesus begun in the Gospel of Luke broadens into the story of the Holy Spirit, guiding the fledgling church to proclaim the saving reality of Jesus. While attentive to Luke's roles as a literary artist and theologian, I. Howard Marshall focuses primarily on Luke's role as a historian. He provides the reader with an accurate, balanced and holistic picture of the church's monumental first years as it sought to fulfill Christ's mandate to preach the gospel to the ends of the earth. The original, unrevised text of this volume has been completely retypeset and printed in a larger, more attractive format with the new cover design for the series. The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament. The Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.

    Please note that the date provided refers to the printing, not the book's actual date. This was published in 1980.

    This is the largest volume in the Tyndale NT series. It contains a lot of great information. I'm doing a study of Acts and have multiple commentaries, mostly technical (e.g., Barrett's 2 vol. ICC; Bruce's Greek Text Commentary and his NIC; Bock's BECNT; Witherington's, & Fitzmyer's AB). Marshall's commentary, believe it or not, fares pretty well in this group, despite being smaller and for a general audience. He seems to have a knack for knowing the kind of information the general reader would like to know or should know. It is not devotional, but historical, linguistic, and theological, like the others in the Tyndale series.

    Overall, if you want to know more about Acts, this books give a lot of relevant information for the size and price.
