Abstract:

"One of the most respected Bible teachers of his generation guide us through Lukeþs record of the growth of the church from Pentecost, throughout Asia Minor, and beyond. Somewhere along the way the idea developed that commentaries are supposed to be a resource, but are not supposed to be all that readable. Derek Thomas and his treatment of Acts defies convention. Here you have a tremendous resource for pastors and students. And here you have a most readable, insightful, and enjoyable book for all. Dr. Thomas writes with a theologian's acuity, a pastor's heart, and a fellow disciple's humility and dependence upon the Holy Spirit - all resulting in a great gift for the church" -- Publisher description.
