"The Tyndale volumes have long been the premier shorter-length commentary series on both Testaments throughout the English-speaking world." (Craig Blomberg, Denver Seminary)
"Tyndale commentaries are always useful, not least because they focus so clearly on the text of Scripture, and do not fall into the trap of paying too much attention to other commentaries and not enough to the scriptural text they are intended to expound and explain. So they retain their usefulness for preachers, Bible study leaders and for all readers of the Bible." (Peter Adam, principal, Ridley College, Melbourne, Australia)
"Within its constraints, this series includes some outstanding volumes." (D. A. Carson, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School)
"There simply is no series of medium-length commentaries that approaches the excellence of the Tyndale commentaries." (Donald A. Hagner, Fuller Theological Seminary)
"The evenness and quality of this series are remarkable." (Christianity Today)

He is coauthor of Exploring the New Testament: A Guide to the Letters and Revelation and coeditor of the New International Greek Testament Commentary series, as well as the author of the series' volume on Luke.

As an example of the helpful points he makes in evaluating Acts, Marshall offers the following aspects of the theology of Acts in the Introduction:
1) The continuation of God's purpose in history
2) The mission and the message
3) Progress despite opposition
4) The inclusion of the Gentiles in the people of God
5) The life and organization of the church
Marshall's commentary is concise yet very rich in content.
It is one of the best in the Tyndale N.T. series. I use this commentary alongside other excellent commentaries on Acts from F.F. Bruce, Ajith Fernando, John Polhill, and John Stott. It is also very reasonably priced, which is a plus in these economic times. Highly recommended.
IMHO Marshall spends too much time taking issue with other writer's interpretations (that he considers wrong). For my purposes it was a waste of money.
