New Acts Commentary

I got a new Acts commentary last week. It looks really useful. David Peterson in the Pillar commentary series. From my brief reading so far it seems thorough, and up-to-date with the latest scholarship (just published last year). It has, what is in my opinion the most helpful format for commentaries, a brief overview of each section of the text followed by more detailed verse by verse comments.

The only disappointment so far is that it doesn’t deal with the theory that Luke-Acts is a legal brief for Paul’s defense before Ceasar. Not sure I agree with this theory, but I would have liked Peterson to interact with it. If you are going to preach Acts, this would be one of the first commentaries I would buy.
