    Being familiar with the work of Craig Keener should have prepared me for the content and breadth of this commentary, but I am still overwhelmed. I cannot imagine how any single resource could ever improve on this work. The breadth of Keener's familiarity with the secondary literature, his keen sense of what will be of most value and interest to his readers, and a very mature writing style combine to make these 4 volumes a treasure. Obviously, I have not read the entire commentary in depth (that will take a few years with my pastoral and academic schedule), but what I have read is impressive. The title is, technically, slightly misleading. Exegesis, and by this I mean close grammatical analysis of the Greek text, is not the primary aim here, although Dr. Keener has obviously done his exegetical homework and this informs his work. This in no way subtracts from the work, since Acts is primarily a work of historical narrative with apologetic, polemical and theological purposes. Keener unpacks all of this in detailed fashion. No more purchases of Acts commentaries required! I can't think of any perspective or concern that the author has not dealt with in meticulous detail. Well worth the investment, especially at the CBD price.

    It's difficult to accurately describe this 4 volume set. The subtitle, an exegetical commentary, is inadequate. While exegetical issues are surely explored in grand detail, that is only the beginning. This is a full and comprehensive reference for the early Christian era. Keener's scope is wide and his research even wider. In his usual style, he is able to deliver this massive amount of information with a skilled hand and to actually make the material interesting. He does not attempt to domesticate the text. He rather seeks to liberate it from it's shackles and dares the reader to compare his own understanding of faith with that of our spiritual ancestors. This is a unique work that will be a tutor and companion for years to come.

    Meticulous, thorough, detailed, judicious -- these are adjectives that I expect to be able to apply to Craig Keener's work and his 4-volume commentary on Acts earns these once again, in boldface. This is not a commentary: it is a compendium. Keener has digested the extant literature on Acts, brought to bear his own deep immersion in the Greco-Roman world and its literature (including, of course, the literature of Hellenistic- and Roman-period Judaism) and exegetical acumen, and created what I consider to be a one-stop resource on the book of Acts and the hundreds of issues/questions that have been raised in its interpretations. Keener is also bold. He does not yield to the dominant anti-supernaturalistic world view of the West in his treatment of Acts, but he also does not casually embrace the alternative: it is through well-reasoned, well-researched argument that he makes a case for the historicity of the miraculous in Acts (indeed, his two-volume work on Miracles began as an excursus in the Acts commentary, and soon had to be broken away for indepedent treatment). This is not for the casual reader, to say the least. It is for the serious student who wants to come away from the study of Acts with no stone left un-turned; it is also the ultimate reference work on Acts. I have admittedly only read sections from the introduction and those parts of the commentary relevant to Paul's Galatian mission (so, on chs. 13-14 and the relevant passages in chs 16 and 18 where he passes through twice more), but this was enough to tell me it is the last commentary I'll need to acquire for a long time to come. The list price may seem high (so thank heaven for CBD!), but even at that it's still a tremendous value when one considers that it brings four 1000-page hardcover volumes your way.
