4.0 out of 5 stars A Good Scholarly Work, 17 July 2010
By 
Mr. G. N. Charmley "bluebase23" (Norfolk, England) - See all my reviews
(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: Acts (Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament) (Hardcover)
This is a volume in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series. In common with all the commentaries in this series, it is well-presented and has an attractive hardcover binding featuring an image from a classic work of art.

This is in many respects a follow-up to Bock's magisterial two-volume work on Luke's Gospel, and Bock brings the same careful scholarship and high level of readability to this volume. It is scholarly without being dry. Bock's prose is easy to read, and he brings out the meaning of the text with reference to the Greek, though without assuming the reader has a full knowledge of the language. he engages with other writers on the book, showing knowledge of a broad range of literature. This volume is highly recommended for those studying the book of Acts, especially for pastors and preachers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-Have Commentary, 28 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Acts (Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament) (Hardcover)
I have been trying to get this book in digital format for some months, but opted in the end to buy the book. The advantage of a book of course, is that one needs neither electricity nor internet connection to enjoy!!
Darrell Bock has majored in the writings of Luke for mant years now and his 2 volumes on the Gospel of Luke and this accompanying volume on Acts are essential for anyone wanting an in-depth evangelical yet scholarly approach to these important books of the Bible. The end product (all 3 volumes) are God-honouring and Christ exalting, which is what any guide to these important books ought to be.
I am delighted to get this and would recommend it unreservedly to any serious student of the Bible
My copy came from "The Book Depository" here in the UK and the parcel arrived in good time and in excellent condition.
