Editorial Reviews

Stephen J. Nichols
"Somewhere along the way the idea developed that commentaries are supposed to be a resource, but are not supposed to be all that readable. Derek Thomas and his treatment of Acts defies convention. Here you have a tremendous resource for pastors and students. And here you have a most readable, insightful, and enjoyable book for all. Dr. Thomas writes with a theologian's acuity, a pastor's heart, and a fellow disciple's humility and dependence upon the Holy Spirit - all resulting in a great gift for the church."
Dr. Sean Michael Lucas
"Biblically thorough, theologically accurate, pastorally sensitive--here is a rich feast set before God's people. As Derek Thomas feeds us from the book of Acts, not only do we find ourselves satisfied; we are compelled to love Jesus more today than we did yesterday. And isn't that the goal of all biblical preaching, writing, and living?"
Burk Parsons
"The church of the twenty-first century desperately needs to know her first-century history. With pastoral care and thoughtful scholarship, Thomas gets to the very heart of Acts as he helps to draw our hearts to the Holy Spirit as the main character of the book. This book rouses our hearts and lifts our eyes to look to the faithfulness of our triune and covenant God of history and eternity. Thomas beautifully provides the church of Christ with a much-needed resource for believers of all ages who desire to more fully know God’s sovereign history in the early church."
Carl R. Trueman
"The Book of Acts is a such an important book in so many ways: from seeing how the early church moved out of Palestine and reached out to Gentiles, to understanding basic principles of church life and practice. In this work, Derek Thomas opens up the book for readers in a way that only a preacher can; and, as a result, all Christians—from the finest preacher to the humblest student of the Bible—will find that they have a veritable gold mine in their hands."
