Hamm helps visualize Christianity's growth from Jewish roots and the Church as continuation of God's covenant with Israel. Paying close attention to the use of the Old Testament. Hamm demonstrates how the Acts of the Apostles--first addressed to the early Christian community--speaks to our generation today.

Chapters are The Risen Christ and the Restoration of Israel in Jerusalem (1:1 -8:3)," "The Mission in Judea and Samaria (8:4-9:43)," "The Inauguration of the Gentile Mission (10:1-15:35)," and "The Mission of Paul to the Ends of the Earth(15:36-28:31)." Also includes maps and discussion questions.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Acts of the Apostles: New Testament (New Collegeville Bible Commentary) (Pt. 5)?

Deepen Your Understanding of Acts.  Apr 7, 2007
I read this book in connection with an adult religious ed class which I was taking at my parish. When my schedule changed so that I could not continue the classes, I found the book sufficiently interesting so that I continued reading it to the end.

The top part of each page contains the text of Acts, while the bottom contains commentary and explanation, organized by the verses featured. The bottom sections include explanations of words used in the original, comparisons with other sections of scripture, and the placing scripture in the context of its time and culture. The study of this book helps the reader see the recurring themes in Acts, such as St. Peter's "campaign speech" about "Jesus, whom you hanged on a tree."

This is a good book to help the reader deepen his understanding of Acts and its place in our Faith. This volume has encouraged me to read other volumes in this series. Acts is a good place to start.
