Not a commentary per se, this fascinating look at the themes in the Book of Acts will expand your understanding of the entire Bible. Johnson draws intricate thematic connections between Old Testament and New, promise and fulfillment, the early believers and modern church, and much more, always pointing you to Christ. 262 pages, softcover from Presbyterian & Reformed.
Johnson shows how the themes of Acts, centering on redemption in Jesus Christ, connect with both Old Testament prophecy and our experience today.
Dennis E. Johnson (ThM, Westminster Theological Seminary; PhD, Fuller Theological Seminary) is professor of practical theology at Westminster Seminary California. He is also an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church in America, author of Triumph of the Lamb, and contributor to numerous books and theological journals.
Johnsons elegantly written book on the themes of Acts... keeps the big picture always in view, yet unfailingly and perceptively speaks to interpretive and pastoral difficulties. I am exceedingly glad this book is finally available.
