Overview

In the second volume of this four-volume commentary, Craig Keener continues his detailed exegesis of Acts, offering a wealth of fresh insights. The first two volumes cite more than 30,000 extrabiblical ancient references.

"This is the most expansive treatment of Acts in modern scholarship. Keener offers the reader a sweeping tour of the relevant ancient material and modern scholarship on Acts. He takes Acts seriously as a work of ancient history; at the same time, he is aware of the literary and rhetorical dimensions of the text."
--Gregory E. Sterling, Yale Divinity School

"Craig Keener, a master of primary and secondary sources, has crafted another meticulous commentary that is a joy to read. It is full of information that shows Keener's unusual industriousness and precision. Highly recommended."
--James H. Charlesworth, Princeton Theological Seminary

"A magnificent achievement. This volume continues in the same vein as the first, with superbly detailed exegesis of the text as well as many helpful excursuses on more general topics of interest--with a wealth of material to back up all the claims made. Without any shadow of doubt, an indispensable reference work for all students of Acts and early Christianity."
--Christopher Tuckett, Pembroke College, University of Oxford

"Craig Keener has proved himself to be one of the greatest living commentators on the New Testament. This second volume on Acts--packed with an incredible amount of contextual information as well as wisdom about the text itself--is bound to become a standard reference work for many years to come."
--Ben Witherington III, Asbury Theological Seminary; St. Andrews University, Scotland

"This commentary is so thorough and comprehensive that it can truly be said to 'leave no stone unturned.' Keener has single-handedly wrought an encyclopedic work, the likes of which only whole teams of scholars have been able to produce in multivolume compendia. It therefore will be the first commentary to which scholars, students, and pastors will turn with any question on the text of Acts."
--Seyoon Kim, School of Theology, Fuller Theological Seminary

"A tour de force. This commentary may be all that you will ever need on Acts. It is not only exhaustive in its historical detail, it is rich in inspiring interpretation."
--David E. Garland, George W. Truett Theological Seminary, Baylor University
