From the Back Cover
"There's nothing today's church needs so much as to rediscover the doctrine, spirit, and commitments of the early Christian community," writes James Montgomery Boice.The power the early church exhibited for changes and growth is overwhelming. Although it faced enormous obstacles--it was completely new, it taught truths that seemed unbelievable, and it suffered intense hatred and persecution-the church managed to spread across the early world within the lifetime of the first generation of believers. In fifty chapters that progress through the book of Acts, Boice issues a challenge to believers to follow the first-century church. We are encouraged to glean the vital principles that enabled the early church to expand, and then apply them to our modern-day church. If we take time to study the expansion of the early church, we can spread the gospel the way it was spread during the first century-by the faithful preaching and teaching of the great truths of the Bible. James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000) was senior pastor of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. He was also president and cofounder of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, the parent organization of The Bible Study Hour on which Boice was a speaker for more than thirty years.

Dr. Boice's commentary on Acts will be enjoyed by historians and Christians alike. He lends valuable context to this chronicle of early church history. Along the way, he examines the daily peaks and troughs of life in the first century church, and highlights Luke's own historical accuracy in retelling the journeys of Paul. From Jerusalem to Judea and Samaria, and to the uttermost parts of the earth, it is an oddesey not to be missed. A must for pilgrims yearning to learn more, or sceptics that would like their hard questions about the accuracy of Acts addressed.

The Real Church
on 1 October 2009 - Published on Amazon.com
I have been a fan of the late James Montgomery Boice and his many commentaries for about twenty years, and have always found him to be a consistent, reliable, highly intelligent guidepost in expressing the reformed doctrines of the Christian faith. In a time when "the church" around us seems to have so many well intentioned yet culturally corrupted publications on how to "do church," Dr. Boice's Acts commentary is a true breath of fresh air. He returns us to the promised Holy Spirit and His transforming power as expressed through a Peter only recently so lovingly restored by the Savior. He shows us the model of the early church, with its internal elements of prayer, worship, mutual love and fellowship in Jesus, as well as its imperative thrust into a world which responds with a persecution that only serves to fuel a wildfire of faith in Jesus Christ that turns the world upside down. When you read this commentary carefully, you see the early church fail without the power of the Holy Spirit and succeed beyond imagination when the Holy Spirit leads the way. This commentary will give you great hope that the church today must, and by God's grace, will get back to the Spirit led basics of the early church.

Good but not my favorite

Good but not my favorite, not very detailed. MacArthur & J. A. Alexander are better if you want a through study.
Jim Boice Exceeds all others!

I have several commentaries on the book of Acts. This far exceeds that of any other. If you like John MacArthur, then you will love Jim Boice.

One of the Best

This is classic James Boice. Insightful, passionate, and with the depth that one would expect from Boice. This is a definite "must have" for the reformed teacher, student or layman interested in unwrapping some of the "hard sayings" found in the book of acts.
