IVP Academic Acts: Tyndale New Testament Commentary [TNTC]

Appealing to the general reader of the Bible, the TNTC series provides its audience with an exegetical, but non-technical commentary. Readers are not expected to know Greek or Hebrew, only bring the willingness to understand some of the more important issues in New Testament scholarship and learn how they affect our reading and interpretation of the text.

For this reason, IVP Academic is reworking this very successful series in its entirety and hopes to bring the series, and its readers, up to date on translations and the latest developments in Biblical Studies. In Acts renowned and ground breaking Evangelical scholar, I. Howard Marshall has provided lay persons, teachers, and ministers with an invaluable and accessible resource for studying the book of Acts.

Readers will find that although Marshall is one of the most important scholars of the last 3o years, he delivers his insights and research in a clear and concise manner without compromising details or content. Prepare to be taken on an expert historical journey around the Mediterranean World in this informative and revealing study of the expansion and spread of the Christian faith. This series is an excellent resource for Christians looking to build a solid foundation in Scriptural knowledge.

Please note that the date provided refers to the printing, not the book's actual date. This was published in 1980.
This is the largest volume in the Tyndale NT series. It contains a lot of great information. I'm doing a study of Acts and have multiple commentaries, mostly technical (e.g., Barrett's 2 vol. ICC; Bruce's Greek Text Commentary and his NIC; Bock's BECNT; Witherington's, & Fitzmyer's AB). Marshall's commentary, believe it or not, fares pretty well in this group, despite being smaller and for a general audience. He seems to have a knack for knowing the kind of information the general reader would like to know or should know. It is not devotional, but historical, linguistic, and theological, like the others in the Tyndale series.
Overall, if you want to know more about Acts, this books give a lot of relevant information for the size and price.
