The number of commentaries that have academic credibility as well as a credible, powerful influence on ministry is very small. Fernando has done the church the gift of adding one more to this list.
While Fernando's comments on the text and biblical theology are worthwhile, he is strongest in the contemporary significance section. Again and again, he has fruitful insights into the application of the biblical text, with plentiful illustrations from his own life and ministry. And since the author ministers in Sri Lanka, this brings a refreshing non-Western perspective to the book. As a pastor preaching through the book of Acts, I have found his applications seminal for many of my own. He has also given me some ideas for illustrations. Very helpful.
I recommend this book for a pastor preaching or teaching through the book of Acts. While you will need other, more robust commentaries like Schnabel or Bock, this one will provide some grist for the mill.
