    An invaluable resource for New Testament professors and students.

    Highly respected New Testament scholar Craig Keener is known for his meticulous and comprehensive research. This commentary on Acts, his magnum opus, may be the largest and most thoroughly documented Acts commentary ever written. Useful not only for the study of Acts but also early Christianity, this work sets Acts in its first-century context.

    In this volume, the last of four, Keener finishes his detailed exegesis of Acts, utilizing an unparalleled range of ancient sources and offering a wealth of fresh insights. This magisterial commentary will be an invaluable resource for New Testament professors and students, pastors, Acts scholars, and libraries.


    "With this enormous commentary, Craig Keener deploys his breath-taking knowledge of the classical world to shine a bright light on both the big picture of Acts and ten thousand small details. Students of Acts will be in his debt for generations to come." - N. T. Wright, research professor of New Testament and early Christianity, University of St. Andrews

    "With commendable dispatch Craig Keener has completed his monumental study of Acts. ’Commendable dispatch' excludes signs of unseemly haste, to which one might add marks of weariness. To the very end his prose remains unhindered, his footnotes rarely bearing fewer than two thousand calories of erudition. For many this will be a reference commentary, but a reference to sip and savour rather than chug and run. No wise and patient scholar will tackle a passage in Acts without engaging Keener. He reads Acts as strictly historical in aim and detail and does so with a lack of rancour and polemic that invites all to ponder his conclusions. If for no other reason, the richness of detail and depth of immersion in primary sources guarantee a long and honoured life for these volumes." - Richard I. Pervo, author of Acts: A Commentary (Hermeneia)

    "For serious students of Acts, here is a commentary that takes its place at once alongside those of Sir William Ramsay and F. F. Bruce. Its particular strength is its amassing of texts from the ancient world. Keener's work is essential for its survey of and detailed interaction with Acts scholarship. The New Testament researcher must have it! This is a remarkable scholarly achievement that will be eagerly used by a wide range of readers." - I. Howard Marshall, professor emeritus, University of Aberdeen

    "This final volume on Acts is full of the meticulous scholarship and original insight we've come to expect of Keener. Despite the abundance of ancient sources and unparalleled discussion of secondary literature, the prose is beautifully clear and the commentary is a delight to use. You'll need a lot of shelf space for the full set, but Keener has already established himself as the premier commentator on Acts for academics and ministers alike." - Helen K. Bond, director of the Centre for Christian Origins and senior lecturer in New Testament, School of Divinity, University of Edinburgh
