Acts (Baker Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament | BECNT)

ISBN: 9781441251053



In this addition to the acclaimed BECNT series, Darrell Bock provides a thoroughly evangelical commentary on Acts in this volume. With extensive and current research from major works written in the last 15 years and thoughtful chapter-by-chapter exegesis, Bock covers all aspects of the book of Acts—sociological, historical, and theological—for a deeper understanding of Acts. He also seeks to make his commentary readable and concise for those that are not knowledgeable in Greek.

Praise for the Print Edition

Darrell Bock’s long-anticipated sequel to his fine and detailed work on the Gospel of Luke is now available . . . Written in a clear and engaging manner that most anyone can grasp, yet without skimping on interaction with scholarly discussion, Bock manages to critically analyze the huge corpus of literature on Acts with grace and finesse and to make his own contributions along the way. This commentary will serve us well for many years to come.

Ben Witherington III, professor of New Testament, Asbury Theological Seminary, doctoral faculty, St. Andrews University

. . . While unfailingly traditional in its interests and scope, Bock remains in touch with today’s church by seeking to facilitate a robust conversation between Acts and contemporary readers. I especially appreciate his attention to the theological cast of Acts, rightly identifying God as the story’s central character and the text’s most essential referent. Judicious, learned, reverent, as clearly written as it is clear headed in exegetical decisions, Bock’s commentary makes a fine contribution to Acts criticism. I recommend its use for the seminary classroom and the pastor’s study.
