Readable, scholarly commentary on Acts
5 stars By MatthewT, Nov 07 2016
Stott combines his excellent scholarship with fantastic readability and conciseness. 
This commentary is unique in it reads more like a narrative of sections, rather than the more traditional 'verse by verse' commentary. It is very easy to read and deals with many of the questions raised by the text. 
The commentary style is between a technical exegetical commentary and a popular, mass market commentary. He does include occasional transliterations of Greek words and discussion of relevant grammar and translation issues. 
He doesn't specifically set apart sections for application, but does include implications throughout the commentary. 
This excellent commentary would suit people looking to do serious study of Acts.
