4.0 out of 5 stars Craig Keener's Magnum Opus
This is the first volume in a proposed 4 volume commentary on Acts. This first volume covers background, introductory essays and chapters 1 & 2. It is a mammoth undertaking and the Christian church is much indebted to the author's years of research and preparation.

3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Resource for Research
This book consists of two parts, the introduction to Acts which exceeds over 600 pages and then a commentary which is just under 400 pages in length. This is a great resource if you are interested in the background and history of the New Testament, with specific regards to the book of Acts, but will probably be a disappointment if you are looking for a resource for sermon...

This review is from: Acts: An Exegetical Commentary, Volume I: Introduction and 1:1-2:47 (Hardcover)
This is the first volume in a proposed 4 volume commentary on Acts. This first volume covers background, introductory essays and chapters 1 & 2. It is a mammoth undertaking and the Christian church is much indebted to the author's years of research and preparation.

I have found this book useful for both sermon preparation, essay writing and general interest and browsing. As such I would highly recommend it (as well as volume 2 which is also currently available).

This review is from: Acts: An Exegetical Commentary, Volume I: Introduction and 1:1-2:47 (Hardcover)
This book consists of two parts, the introduction to Acts which exceeds over 600 pages and then a commentary which is just under 400 pages in length. This is a great resource if you are interested in the background and history of the New Testament, with specific regards to the book of Acts, but will probably be a disappointment if you are looking for a resource for sermon preparation. There is a lot of information in this text, such as background information on Israel and Luke's perspective on women; all of which are important, but not necessarily helpful for a lay leader or pastor. If you are looking for a resource to help you with a Seminary paper, or if you simply enjoying reading historiography, then you will enjoy this lengthy, informative read. There are other books however, that will be a cheaper, helpful and a more succinct resource that covers the book of Acts. I would recommend the Acts commentary in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary series by Echhard J. Schnabel; this commentary series is probably the best, up to date resource for preaching and sermon preparation available.
