Item description for Acts (IVP New Testament Commentary Series) by William J. Larkin, Jr....
Overview Pastors with a passion for sound exposition have joined forces with scholars to produce this exciting new commentary series. These volumes, informed by the best of recent evangelical scholarship, expound the implications of each New Testament book for today's church. Within the unique series format, pastors, teachers and Bible study leaders alike will find clear, forceful presentations of the heart of each NT author's message, coupled with helpful attention to tough exegetical issues. Seldom have such readable commentary and solid help been available in the same volume.
Publishers Description If ever there was a hostile environment for the gospel, it was the strife-torn, ethnically diverse backwater of the Roman Empire known as Palestine following the ascension of Jesus. But the gospel thrived--beginning from Jerusalem and spreading throughout Judea, Samaria and the rest of the known world. In Acts, the sequel to his Gospel, Luke tells how the Holy Spirit transformed a ragtag band of believers into a unified, world-engaging church. And as William Larkin explores this narrative of the early church, he offers inspiration and insight for readers who wonder how the gospel may be advanced in the increasingly divided and skeptical culture of the late twentieth century. In this clear, incisive commentary, readers will find an introduction with background material concerning authorship, date and purpose, as well as a summary of important theological themes. A passage-by-passage exposition follows that focuses on understanding what significance Acts had for its original readers in order to see its relevance for the church today. Students, pastors, Bible teachers and everyone who wants to understand the message of Matthew for the church will benefit from this excellent resource.
