Product Description

In this volume from the Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series, Tony Merida offers preachers and Bible teachers a learned and practical commentary on the book of Acts that demonstrates how Christ worked through his people in the earliest days of the church. Merida wonderfully summarizes, illustrates, and applies the message of Acts in a way that speaks to the whole person—mind, heart, will, and soul.

Readers will learn to see Christ in all aspects of Scripture, and they will be encouraged by the devotional nature of each exposition. Projected contributors to the series include notable authors such as Russell D. Moore, Al Mohler, Matt Chandler, Francis Chan, Mark Dever, and others.

About the Series

The Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series affirms that the Bible is a Christ-centered book, containing a unified story of redemptive history of which Jesus is the hero. It's presented as sermons, divided into chapters that conclude with a "Reflect & Discuss" section, making this series ideal for small group study, personal devotion, and even sermon preparation. It's not academic but rather presents an easy-reading, practical and friendly commentary. The series is projected to be 48 volumes.

Editorial Reviews

It's one thing to know Bible stories; it's another to know the story of the Bible. It's one thing to be aware of the story's many heroes; it's another to have met the Hero himself. From the Old Testament that anticipates him, to the Gospels that manifest him, to the Book of Acts that proclaims him, to the Epistles that explain him, and to the Book of Revelation that tells of him coming again, your Bible is about Jesus. That's why I love the vision of the Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series. It models for preachers and teachers how to proclaim—with pastoral focus and exegetical care—the beauty of the gospel from every page of Scripture.

Matt Smethurst
Associate Editor for The Gospel Coalition

Few things are more important for faithful biblical interpretation than reading Scripture in light of its master narrative. The Christ-Centered Exposition series aims to do just that.  In a postmodern age, these commentaries provide pastors and lay people an invaluable resource that is unswervingly committed to the authority of Scripture and the centrality of the Gospel in the Bible’s storyline.

    A bridgeTony Merida does an excellent job spanning the gap between Acts and us in his commentary Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary: Exalting Jesus in Acts.

    Spans timefrom good but brief historical background and explanation of the apostles and the missionary journeys, to todays day and age and our questions and concerns.

    Spans heaven and earthfixes our eyes on Jesus yet is down to earth, grounded in practical application.

    Spans the book of ActsMerida does a good job of breaking down the book in thematic, united, and manageable chunks. As the series claims, this helps make it great for sermon preparation and/or personal and small group study.

    Spans hermeneuticswhile Merida obviously did his exegetical work, you wont find the verse-by-verse exegesis as in some commentaries. Rather, it is primarily expository, as the title states.

    Span of diversitythis book does a good job of highlighting the various different contexts the gospel visits, from Jerusalem, to Judea, to the ends of the earth; from the temple courts, to far-off Jewish synagogues, to the Areopagus; from rich Lydia, to the slave girl, and the middle-class jailer of Acts 16.

    Spans passionfrom Pauls heart to Meridas heart to our heart, there is passion in this book. The excitement for the gospel that opens eyes, turning people from darkness to light, from the power of Satan to God, for the forgiveness of sins and a place among the saved (Acts 16:18), the gospel that turns the upside-down world upside-down-right-side-up (Acts 17:6).

    I have listened to many sermon series on Acts and read several commentaries on the book, and while I found a few new nuggets and insights in Meridas work, a lot of it was similaryet a valuable, passionate reminder.
