A veritable wealth of information is contained in this enormous volume--volume 2. I do not yet have the other volumes in this series. But this book is huge with careful evangelical analysis and a nearly exhaustive provision of very helpful background information. I am a pastor currently preaching through the book of Acts. I bought this book after I had already begun work in chapter 11. I regret not purchasing the first volume. I await the third volume with eagerness.

Humbling. Covers a lot of ground. Maybe not everything, but a lot of ground nonetheless. Finally finished the 628 page intro. Appreciate Keener's vast knowledge of the ancient world as well as his awareness of secondary scholarship (and not always from this or the last century, let alone current)..His personal experience adds greatly because he doesn't just talk in a politically correct fashion about "diverse" perspectives. He has actually lived them (or at least much closer than isolated academics are prone to do). Even handed, but not afraid to point out inadequacies and inconsistencies. Am looking forward to reading the commentary itself. though it will take me till next year to finish. So far, though, it's a real page anyone who seriously wants to try to figure out what happened them rather than sitting smugly in one's ivory tower making empty, fanciful politically correct pronouncements just to hear one's own voice and to hear the roar of the crowds......

If you're like me, and I hope you're not, you've been looking for a commentary on the Book of Acts that would give you all the vital information you would receive during seminary training on this wonderful piece of God-breathed history. This first volume, in what is suppose to eventually be a four volume set, is a massive piece of introductory scholarship and commentary on Acts 1:1 - 2:47. The introduction, which entails so much more than the standard intro, weighs in at 638 pages! I don't think there is anything outside of those pages that is missing that would be of vital importance to the student of scripture. I am still perusing pages of the intro that I've been through just to make sure that I have a handle on the information provided to me and to see how it all fits together as a unit of thought. I should state here that I don't always fully agree with Dr. Keener's conclusions, but I have yet to come across any that I would outright disagree with and I've gained a wealth of knowledge on matters that I never had the opportunity to receive. I owe him a huge debt of gratitude for all the painstaking work and research he's done to provide us with this volume.

I am still carefully studying the commentary while re-examining portions of what I've already read and I think that, Lord willing, this examination should last me until the next volume comes out. I have commentaries on my shelf By Bock, Peterson, Schnabel and Marshall to name a few and I've learned a great deal from them all ( I must include Stott's wonderful little commentary), but this is the one-stop book that I've been looking for. I would pick up something from Bock's commentary and wonder how I could dig deeper in that vein, then I would spot something in Peterson's that would send me off on a different tangent. And while most of the commentaries on my shelf supply footnotes, it is not always easy, or possible, to follow up on those notes unless you're willing to spend a lot of cash. Dr. Keener's first volume, while chock full of footnotes, usually supplies any incidental information that might tweak your curiosity.

I cannot wait until the next volume comes out and I cannot give any commentary I've read on the Book of Acts, heck, maybe any commentary period, higher praise and recommendation! May God receive much glory and honor through the study of His wonderful Book of History and may you be transformed and humbled by the Holy Spirit as you submit to Him by studying and applying what you learn...

Keener has done his research in writing an extensive introduction to Acts. The background materials are up to date and relevant to the multiple issues he addresses. The main approach is the social-historical method, though he includes other methods as well.
Apart from the regular introductory materials, he includes issues such as Israel's story and the place of Judaism within the framework of Acts, the geographic background, Luke's perspective as a physican, women and gender in Luke's writings, and especially a section on Luke's pneumatology. His commentary section refers back to the introductory material. His bibliography is extensive and up to date. this may becomes a standard work of reference when completed.
  • Kulafyn
What's to dislike? Probably the best commentary ever written on the book of Acts in terms of scholarship and academic excellence. Over 3 million words!? For all four that is. Do you know how long it would take to count that in seconds? Wow.
  • Katius
Consistent with his other volumes in the set, the author explores the entire range of the Greco-Roman literature in the first century, along with the known Christian manuscripts which apply to Luke's writings. Exhaustively thorough and dependable in scholarship.
  • Goltikree
Kenner has written a very thorough commentary on Acts, one to become a standard resource when all volumes are completed.
The first volume had an extensive introduction to which one will occasionally refer. Many may find the commentary 'too wordy'
as he gives supplementary historical material within the commentary section. As the title states this is an exegetical commentary
blending the historical background, with textual and theological insights. One could say this commentary is exhaustive in scope.
He has well documented the text with footnotes and further resources from different theological backgrounds. Regardless your
theological background you will find it insightful and challenging with many golden nuggets.
I'm glad to have this resource. I appreciate all the hard work that Keener invested to make this available to those who want to study the books of Acts!
