Acts (TNTC) by I. Howard Marshall

41jypjvkqnl-_sx315_bo1204203200_There are many well written commentaries on the book of Acts.  Some of these commentaries are un-engaging while others have so much filler that they are absolutely useless.  Thankfully there is one that is both practical and academic.  The Tyndale New Testament Commentary series is constantly changing yet while the series is going though a major overhaul there is one commentary which has been in it’s repertoire for over forty years and is still one of the greatest volumes of the series.  This commentary is written by top notch scholar Howard I. Marshall.

Due to Acts size any well written and profitable commentary is be large in size as well.  Marshall’s commentary while an introduction level commentary is just shy of 450 pages in length.  In this vein the commentary has the depth to be useful to pastors and scholar’s alike while accessible enough to be helpful to the laymen.

I therefore highly recommend this volume in the TNTC to any an all who look to study the book of Acts.

This book was provided to me free of charge from IVP Academic in exchange for an unbiased, honest review.
