The Acts of the Apostles | James D. G. Dunn

The cover of Dunn's The Acts of the ApostlesActs begins in Jerusalem and ends in Rome. It starts with the Jewish people and ends up reaching the heart of the Gentile empire.

In this commentary, Dunn reads the text closely and provides a number of insights to help the reader understand how each story works in the broader context of Acts. He demonstrates that Christianity stands in unity with the Jewish faith while at the same time reaches beyond it in embracing the radical message of the Messiah in the power of the Spirit.

This commentary hits the sweet spot. It is non-technical and easy to read while at the same time deep and thoughtful. Dunn gives plenty of enough substance that will enrich your own understanding of scripture and give fuel to the teachers.
