Product Description

Dennis Hamm stresses the unity between the Acts of Apostles and the Gospel of Luke. His section-by-section commentary (along with New American Bible translation), based on the best of recent scholarship, will appeal to teachers, preachers and Bible study groups with its non-technical, yet scholarly style. Hamm helps visualize Christianity's growth from Jewish roots and the Church as continuation of God's covenant with Israel. Paying close attention to the use of the Old Testament. Hamm demonstrates how the Acts of the Apostles--first addressed to the early Christian community--speaks to our generation today.

Editorial Reviews

Dennis Hamm reads the story of Acts as the dramatic continuation of Luke’s story of Jesus and the longer story of Israel. His interpretation is uncluttered and clear and helpful. He is especially good at showing how Luke uses speeches to interpret events as well as the words of Scripture. Here is a scholarship that makes great learning available to ordinary Christians in a manner that is both responsible and accessible.
Luke Johnson

This work unobtrusively recaps the history of scholarship on Luke-Acts and provides remarkable new insights, all couched in a graphic style with contemporary illustrations that engage the reader on every page. A remarkable achievement in such a short space. This book will inform your mind and build up your faith.
L. John Topel, SJ, Seattle University, Author, Children of a Compassionate God
