part of a series of blog posts on commentaries that I used when preaching through the book of Acts @The Grove between Easter 2010 and 2011…
N.T. Wright has written a whole series of commentaries that are designed “for everyone” to be able to learn and grow from. For the book of Acts, Wright split it into two parts, since not everyone would read a book thicker than their wallet.
Even though Wright is a genius when it comes to explaining the Scriptures, he comments on the Acts of the Apostles in a way that is accessible and relatable. By sharing personal stories in each chapter he relates the Scriptures to real life and makes practical application easy.
If you’re never read a real live commentary, this is the series that I would suggest. The explanation of Scripture is outstanding and the application is reliable making for a commentary that is helpful for personal and spiritual growth.
