Editorial Reviews

Review

Craig S. Keener
— Palmer Theological Seminary
"David Peterson interacts with Acts scholarship fairly and in an up-to-date way; his literary and historical conclusions are well informed and sound. His introduction airs issues thoroughly, yet the entire work is easy to follow. Peterson consistently engages the cohesive, larger picture and the theological message of the book."

I. Howard Marshall
— University of Aberdeen
"Here in one convenient volume is the basic introductory information and verse-by-verse exegesis that New Testament students and preachers need in order to understand the second part of Luke's account of Christian beginnings. This commentary is noteworthy for its incorporation of a full essay on the theology of Acts and its careful attention to theological issues in the course of the exposition; at the same time it does not neglect historical and literary matters. I warmly commend this useful tool for study."

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.

There is no doubt that David Peterson's commentary on Acts is a work of high scholarship. It is also written in an accessible way so that most readers will benefit from its insights. I did not find it as insightful in the end as some of the other commentaries I used while studying through the book of Acts and for the price tag there are much better bargains. It is by no means a bad work but it did not in my mind have a value equal to its price. That said I would recommend it to mature Christians who are not under any price constraint, though even then it would not be my first choice. This is a very solid commentary, however.

I have preached through chapter 2 and have to say the first 150 pages are great. I am using Peterson and Polhill as my commentaries and would go with Polhill for readability but both are amazing.
