Excellent Jan 3, 2007
Great study guide to the Book of Acts. A must have for any aspiring ministers or pastors. Also a great book for personal study guide to the Book of Acts.
unparalleled blend of scholarship and practicality Aug 9, 2005
Polhill's commentary on Acts was a gold medalion nominee for the excellent commentary by Evangelical Christian Publishers Association. The author exhibits the rarity of combining academic clarity with practical applications for modern non-technical readers. The reliability of this book should be obvious by other excellent Acts commentators such as Fitzmyer and Whitherington who quote and rely on Polhill on a number of occasions. In my opinion, this book is the bestbuy of all Acts commentaries available in English language especially for preachers and teachers of the Bible.
