Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. The Acts of the Apostles: Pillar New Testament Commentary [PNTC]

The Acts of the Apostles [PNTC] offers a thorough exegesis of the Book of Acts, drawing on recent scholarship in the field of narrative criticism and theological analysis, incorporating insights about historical and social context, and seeking to investigate why Luke presents his material in the way that he does. Providing not only extensive engagement with hermeneutical issues and incorporation of insights on Greco-Roman background, but also guidelines for contemporary application of LukeB's material, The Acts of the Apostles will prove extremely relevant for any preacher or teacher of Luke-Acts.

David Peterson's commentary of the Book of Acts is a welcome addition to the Pillar New Testament Commentary series. Having relied on Bruce's work in the NICNT series for many years, I am delighted to find that Peterson offers a fresh perspective of this often misunderstood book of Scripture. His introduction of nearly 100 pages is worth reading before entering his exposition of the book that serves as a bridge between the foundational and doctrinal sections of the New Testament. His Greek exegesis is sound but not overwhelming. The Pillar series seems destined to become the standard, rivaling--if not replacing--the NICNT in the near future. Highly recommended!

I have been using John Stott's, Acts New International Biblical Commentary, and some other one volume commentaries. They are lacking of some details esp in exegesis about the texts. But this one is outstanding and worth its weight in gold!!!. I think it is even better than Acts (Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament) by Darrell Bock.
