The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament (EGGNT) closes the gap between the Greek text and the available lexical and grammatical tools, providing all the necessary information for greater understanding of the text. The series makes interpreting any given New Testament book easier, especially for those who are hard pressed for time but want to preach or teach with accuracy and authority.
Each volume begins with a brief introduction to the particular New Testament book, a basic outline, and a list of recommended commentaries. The body is devoted to paragraph-by-paragraph exegesis of the Greek text and includes homiletical helps and suggestions for further study. A comprehensive exegetical outline of the New Testament book completes each EGGNT volume.
Scott Kellum’s look at the book of Acts is a wonderfully focused study of the careful contribution of the Greek to understanding this core piece of the canon. This work does an excellent job of interacting with the language and with the voices of commentators about it with an eye to cultural context, the meaning of words, and its resultant theology. For those who love to dig into the text, this is a solid resource.

Kellum’s exegetical guide to Acts is an extraordinary resource. I have heard seminary alumni many times bemoan the fact that they did not keep up with their Greek after graduating. This book was the aid they needed to help them do so, but they can still profit much from consulting it now. The Greek of Acts may be less inviting since it is more literary, less vernacular, and colored with Semitisms, but Kellum is an adept guide who clears the way for a fresh grasp of what Luke actually writes. I cannot see persons seriously studying, preaching, or teaching Acts without this companion by their side.

“Most students in graduate theological education learn Greek by reading the letters of John or Paul. When they reach the Greek of Acts, they find themselves grammatically lost. This helpful commentary by Scott Kellum will serve as a helpful introduction into the Lukan writings.
