Author(s): David G. Peterson
Fifteen years in the making, this comprehensive commentary by David Peterson offers thorough exegesis and exposition of the Acts of the Apostles, drawing on recent scholarship in the fields of narrative criticism and theological analysis, incorporating insights into historical-social background, and investigating why Luke presents his material the way he does. / In view of how long the book of Acts is — over a thousand verses — Peterson’s commentary is admirably economical yet meaty. As D. A. Carson notes in his editor’s preface, Peterson’s judgments are always “sane, evenhanded, and judicious.” Even while exploring exegetical details, Peterson constantly scans the horizon, keeping the larger picture in mind. With its solid exegesis, astute theological analysis, and practical contemporary application, Peterson’s Acts of the Apostles is a commentary that preachers, teachers, and students everywhere will want and need.
