In 1997 scholar and teacher R.C. Sproul was called to the pulpit of St. Andrews Chapel in Sanford, Florida. The published collections of his sermons, the St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary series, are the result of years of careful preparation and weekly, Bible-centered preaching. Readers will follow Sproul as he preaches through the book of Acts. The account of the gospel spreading to the Gentiles is the story of the roots of the Christian faith. By God’s grace and the labor of Paul and the apostles, salvation has spread to all the nations. Balancing broad and narrow perspectives of each passage, Sproul explores important theological terms and themes, offers perspective from his own wisdom and experience, and engages in practical application.
Delivered from a pastor’s heart for his congregation, readers will find Acts readable, applicable, appropriately paced, and thoroughly Bible-centered. Here is an opportunity to sit at the feet of an eminent theologian and teacher, encountering the Word of God.
The St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary will be welcomed throughout the world. It promises to have all R.C.’s hallmarks: clarity and liveliness, humor and pathos, always expressed in application to the mind, will, and affections. R.C.’s ability to focus on ‘the big picture,’ his genius of never saying too much, leaving his hearers satisfied yet wanting more, never making the Word dull, are all present in these expositions.

R.C. Sproul is a legend in our time. His preaching has held us in awe for half a century, and these pages represent the fruit of his latest exposition, coming as they do at the very peak of his abilities and insights. I am ecstatic at the prospect of reading the St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary series. It represents Reformed theology on fire, delivered from a pastor’s heart in a vibrant congregation of our time. Essential reading.
—Derek W.H. Thomas, John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary
Thousands of us have long been indebted to R.C. Sproul the teacher, and now, through the St. Andrew’s Expositional Commentary, we are indebted to Sproul the preacher, whose sermons are thoroughly biblical, soundly doctrinal, warmly practical, and wonderfully readable. I predict that Sproul’s pulpit ministry in written form will do for Christians in the twenty-first century what Martyn Lloyd-Jones’s sermonic commentaries did for us last century.
—Joel R. Beeke, president, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary
