I. Howard Marshall offers commentary on the book of Acts, showing how it is a history book of the early church, a literary work, the sequel of a work beginning with the Gospel of Luke, and a work of theology.
Luke's purposes are varied. He writes with a pastoral concern. He shows how the essential task of the church is mission. He describes how God does not accept racial discrimination. Luke stresses the work of the Holy Spirit and shows how the church is raised up and directed by God. He believes in the ultimate triumph of the Gospel. These are encouraging and timely messages, even for the church today.
The Tyndale New Testament Commentaries have long been a trusted resource for Bible study. Written by some of the world's most distinguished evangelical scholars, these twenty volumes offer clear, reliable, and relevant explanations of every book in the New Testament.
These Tyndale volumes are designed to help readers understand what the Bible actually says and what it means. The introduction to each volume gives a concise but thorough description of the authorship, date, and historical background of the biblical book under consideration. The commentary itself examines the text section by section, drawing out its main themes. It also comments on individual verses and deals with problems of interpretation. The aim throughout is to get at the true meaning of the Bible and to make its message plain to readers today.
