Review

"No one should teach or preach from the Acts of the Apostles again without first reading this book."

-- Douglas S. Huffman, Journal of the Evangelical Theological Society, Spring 2013

"This is a very helpful book which I have read with great appreciation. Thompson provides exactly what he sets out to do: a clear framework for reading Acts which takes careful account of many major themes and issues, and a framework which equips his readers to explore further themselves."

-- Steve Walton, Evangelical Quarterly, 86.2 (2014)

"We can be grateful to Thompson for a profound, convincing, and delightful work on the theology of Acts. It is a much needed work, for there are few theologies of Acts written, and I can't think of one that is more accessible and faithful."

-- Thomas R. Schreiner, Themelios, November 2011, 36.3

"This book will help readers further appreciate the organic and progressive nature of revelation and understand the narrative flow and canonical function of the book of Acts. The connections made with previous revelation . . . are very illuminating and will stimulate much thought whether one agrees or disagrees with Thompson's conclusions. I recommend the book highly."

-- Richard C. Barcellos, Reformed Baptist Theological Review, V111: 1, Spring 2011

". . . an accessible, lucidly written, biblically faithful treatment of the theology of Acts. . . . Thompson establishes a unifying theological framework for Acts and clearly ties each chapter into this framework. . . . This is perhaps the most accessible book-length treatment of the theology of Acts, relevant to a broad academic and church readership."

-- Brian J. Tabb, Bulletin for Biblical Research, 23.1, 2013

"My favorite book of 2012–2013."

-- James M. Hamilton, Towers, Summer Reading Issue, June-July 2013

". . . a first-class discussion and explanation of the theology of the Acts that is thoroughly biblical, abreast of the latest scholarship and written in a way that is accessible to those who teach and preach the Bible."

-- Greg Goswell, New Life, 1 December 2011 --This text refers to the paperback edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good advanced study of Acts
By Blake on November 1, 2020
According to Thompson, the book of Acts is really “the Acts of the Lord Jesus, through his people, by the Holy Spirit, for the accomplishment of God’s purposes” (49). The focus on Jesus and His inaugurated kingdom is a big strength of this book.

The one major disappointment I had was Thompson’s treatment of baptism. Instead of allowing the text to speak for itself Thompson argues that baptism is not the time at which one receives the Holy Spirit and forgiveness of sins. Besides that the book is very good.

I do think that this book is worth a read for those who have a strong knowledge of the Bible and of Acts in particular and would recommend it to those doing an in-depth study of the book of Acts. The Acts of the Risen Lord Jesus, with it’s focus on the importance of the kingdom of God in Acts, is an excellent supplementary read as part of a broader study of the book of Acts.

(If you are new to the book of Acts this book is not the place to start - read Acts itself and pick up a good commentary such as those of J.W. McGarvey.)
