Overview
In Acts, the third of eighteen volumes in the Paideia commentary series, leading biblical scholar Mikeal Parsons gleans fresh theological insight into Acts by attending carefully to the cultural and educational context from which it emerges. Parsons sees Acts as a charter document explaining and legitimating Christian identity for a general audience o f early Christians living in the ancient Mediterranean world. Pastors, graduate and seminary students, and professors will benefit from this readable commentary, as will theological libraries. The Paideia commentaries are designed to be read through and used, not shelved and referenced. The main text is supplemented with maps, sidebars, and photographs. Indexes and reference lists help readers locate discussions in the commentary and in other secondary literature.

Reviews - What do customers think about Acts (Paideia: Commentaries on the New Testament)?

Parsons demonstrates high reputability in much-reputed series  Nov 17, 2008
I marveled through Dr. Talbert's treatment of Ephesians (and read Colossians only because I was so impressed by the former), the first volume in this new series from Baker Publications. Dr. Talbert has previously demonstrated his ability to say so much more (and so more easily) than so many others, and I could only figure Dr. Parsons' reputation as a fine interpreter of Acts to be a remarkable and appropriate fit. The word count is just a bit more per page, and this was more of a surprise than an inconvenience. I really appreciated both scholars' ease with discussing the biblical text paragraph by paragraph, noting details as they pertained only to the context. I highly recommend both volumes.
