The Outlines Are Worth The Price of the Book Apr 18, 2005
The title of the series of commentaries by John Phillips says it all. These truly are expository commentaries. The outlines are simply worth the price for all these works. Phillips has done are marvelous job of taking the Scriptures and teaching through them verse by verse and at the same time giving us Bible teachers outlines that we can use to teach from as well.
In fact, I would say that this commentary on Acts is one of the best devotional books you can find. Phillips' insights are very down to earth and he doesn't take the reader on a journey that the reader will not understand but leads you verse by verse, scene by scene through Acts. He will touch on doctrinal issues if necessary but he doesn't take up pages trying to convince you of his position but simply let's the Scripture speak for itself.
Finally, I appreciate that Phillips uses a literal translation. In this case it is the King James Version. Many commentaries have gone the route of dynamic equivalent translations (such as the NIV). Because Phillips uses the KJV throughout, he does have to translate the text into modern language. Therefore I would rather him have used the New King James but I still praise God that Phillips used a literal text (as well as the Greek when needed).
Top Notch Bible Commentary Nov 27, 2004
Currently I am taking an elective on ACTS. This is the text book of choice for the class. So far I have enjoyed Mr. Philipp's observation of the Biblical texts. He writes from a non-critical standpoint. Which I think is very important. Great outlines are found in this 528 page book. In a phone conversation with Mr. Phillips he points out that he wrote most of his commentary by long hand, and that it gives him the time to think and meditate on the various books of the Bible he wrote comments on. WHAT A GOOD WORK he has done. We are truly the recipients of classic work done by observant men. Thank you so very much Mr. Phillips. He also recommends whole heartedly his works on Psalms and Proverbs -- I haven't had the chance to see read them yet, but I sure will look forward to picking up my own copy.
