Format: Hardcover
I have been using Peterson on Acts for several weeks now. It was not available when I first started preaching through Acts and I was relying heavily upon Bock and Stott and others. The others are good but Peterson is outstanding. He does not get bogged down. He keeps working through the material in the most helpful way. He not only accurately and succinctly explains the text, but he is also not afraid to say what it means. It is very inspiring and helpful to one who wants to apply as well as understand God's Word. Especially helpful is his explanation of the early church as the "new Israel". I highly recommend this valuable new commentary.

Worth its weight in gold! This is a serious commentary of over 700 pages, but the information is accessible and readable. High quality scholarship of one who believes what he writes and ideal for writing expository styles sermons.

15 of 39 people found the following review helpful By Jacques Schoeman on October 26, 2009
Format: Hardcover
On p 141 Peterson correctly moves to show that "the last days" began with the advent of Christ. 'The sending forth of Christ marks to Paul the "fullness of time" (Gal 4:4), a phrase which certainly means more than that the time was ripe for the introduction of Christ into the world: the fulness of time means the end of that aeon and the commencement of another period.' Geerhardus Vos, Redemptive History & Biblical Interpretation, ed. Richard Gaffin Jr, p 93 This approach countenances the view of the Christ-event as a series of events which had been set in motion by the incarnation of the second Person of the Trinity, the Son. To the sending of the third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit, Peterson attaches redemptive-historical significance in the Introduction (pp. 29-31) and ecclesiological meaning in the commentary proper (p 156). This projects immense importance onto the events at Pentecost as the fulfillment of eschatological expectation created by the OT (Joel 2:28-32). Peterson happily routs the Pentecostal paradigm of a two stage salvation by means of upholding Pentecost's own paradigm where the apostles' teaching is set above their personal experience (pp. 62-4).

Peterson gives fresh support to the view that Acts does not legislate for John Wimber's Power-Evangelism: 'Evangelism without accompanying signs & wonders is in no sense incomplete. The gospel alone is fully sufficient to lead to faith in Christ and the salvation He has won for us.
