The Book of Acts is the story of the new Church, young in years but mature in faith and purpose. In this passage-by-passage study, MacArthur focuses on the powerful lessons the new Christians were learning---through the experience of Pentecost, Peter's sermon, and the persecution they faced---as they began to transform the world with the Gospel. MacArthur's trademark clarity, a bibliography, and Greek, Hebrew, and Scripture indexes make this an invaluable study tool for leaders and laypeople.

Series: MacArthur New Testament Commentary
These study guides, part of a set from noted Bible scholar, John MacArthur, take readers on a journey through biblical texts to discover what lies beneath the surface, focusing on meaning and context, and then reflecting on the explored passage or concept. With probing questions that guide the reader toward application, The MacArthur Bible Studies are invaluable tools for Bible students of all ages. The book of Acts is the first volume of church history. It records the story of the church from its explosive beginning on the Day of Pentecost to the imprisonment at Rome of its greatest missionary. During those three decades, the church expanded from a small group of Jewish believers gathered in Jerusalem to embrace thousands in dozens of congregations throughout the Roman world. Acts describes how the Spirit of God superintended, controlled, and empowered the expansion of the church. Although a work of history, not theology, Acts nevertheless emphasizes the doctrinal truths concerning salvation, the work and person of the Holy Spirit, and other theological issues. Join John MacArthur as he searches the pages of the book of Acts to uncover the intricacies of God's Word spoken to His people.

He provides commentary related to the history and culture of the time relevant to the passages he is commenting on. He will insert background information that helps to place the scripture in context, and of course, most important of all, he always uses scripture to interpret scripture. I routinely use has commentaries as one of the sources I rely when I am teaching Sunday school. I have found his commentaries to be one of the best and very easy to read.

I have his full set of commentaries that I use as one of my sources for studies. I purchased the two commentaries on Acts as a gift for a friend that is preparing to teach a men's bible study. I may not agree with all of his views, but the points and relations to scripture and the history of the times that he brings to light is very much worth reading.
