Overview

First published in 1954, F. F. Bruce’s volume on the Book of Acts in the NICNT series has stood for more than 50 years as a standard commentary on Acts. In keeping with the effort to be faithful to the description “new” in the series title, however, Bruce undertook a thorough revision of this commentary before his death in 1990.

Expanded and fully updated, this volume now reflects the best elements of recent notable contributions to the study of Luke-Acts as well as the author’s own deepened understanding gained from years of further reflection on the text. Whereas the first edition used the text of the American Standard Version of 1901, this revision is based on Bruce’s own fresh translation of the Greek text. The result is a work that makes transparent the walls between the first and the twentieth centuries and enables readers to hear not only the voice of Luke but the Word of God.

  • Verse-by-verse commentary
  • In-depth discussion of textual and critical matters
  • Introduction to the authorship, date, purpose, structure, and theology of Acts
This is a learned, informative, critical, and eminently readable commentary which no one should overlook.

C. K. Barrett, professor emeritus of divinity, University of Durham, England

Like the forty or so books that have previously come from Bruce’s pen, this is a definitive work which even those who already own the first edition would do well to acquire.

Bruce M. Metzger, professor emeritus of New Testament language and literature, Princeton University

Marked by meticulous scholarship, lucidity of expression, and a sound historical sense. This [revised] commentary looks set to serve a new generation of readers . . . as the first edition did in its time.
