Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Helpful and Dependable!June 26, 2017Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5If youre looking for a good mixture of being pastor friendly and economical, you should look up this volume in the highly-regarded New American Commentary (NAC) series. John Polhill is comfortable in this territory as he has also given us the helpful Paul and his Letters with the same publisher. Hes had two decades of teaching and preaching on Acts and it shows in this book. In the first paragraph of his preface, he tells us that he aims this commentary at pastors first. He has succeeded in his objective.
After reading how he aimed first at pastors, I was surprised at the depth in the Introduction. Ive reviewed a few major exegetical commentaries on Acts, and Polhill addressed every issue they did. He covered it well too.
He begins by showing where Acts can be found in early tradition. He surveyed all the information about authorship and date and reaches conservative conclusions. He covers sources and genre. He explains the importance of speeches in Acts. He discusses Luke as both a historian and a theologian. He provides some maps of Pauls journeys and has a detailed outline. All told, the Introduction runs through page 76.
The commentary is truly helpful. I suspect that pastors will agree thats its value is good. Thats my opinion for sure.
I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commissions 16 CFR, Part 255.
