Baker Academic Acts: Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament [BECNT]

Following his authoritative two-volume commentary on Luke in the acclaimed BECNT series, Darrell Bock now provides a substantive yet highly accessible commentary on Acts in this latest addition to the series. With extensive research and thoughtful chapter-by-chapter exegesis, Bock leads readers through all aspects of the book of Acts---sociological, historical, and theological---to help them better understand and explain this key New Testament book.

As with all BECNT volumes, Acts features the author's detailed interaction with the Greek text. This commentary admirably achieves the dual aims of the series---academic sophistication with pastoral sensitivity and accessibility---making it a useful tool for students, professors, and pastors. The user-friendly design includes shaded-text chapter introductions summarizing the key themes of each thought unit.

Darrell L. Bock (PhD, University of Aberdeen) is research professor of New Testament studies at Dallas Theological Seminary. He is the author or editor of many books, including the two-volume commentary on Luke in the Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series, Jesus according to Scripture, and Studying the Historical Jesus.

This is my second book from this commentary series, and I find each volume thoroughly sound in exegetical commentary. An excellent commentary series to own. I am looking forward to completing my entire series.
