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.
