This ebook opens our understanding of the Acts of the Apostles so that “you may know the truth concerning the things of which you have been informed.” Acts is the second volume of the history of Christian origins by Luke, a doctor who wrote “an orderly account” of the life of Christ and the early church. The first volume is Luke’s gospel.
Written as part of Scripture Union’s Bible Study Commentary series, which encourages regular, systematic personal Bible reading, this commentary is also designed as a resource manual for group study. Acts is a pivotal book in the New Testament, says Bruce, “for it provided the sequel to the Gospels and the background to the apostolic letters.”
PLEASE NOTE that F.F. Bruce also wrote a larger (580 pages) and more scholarly commentary on Acts as part of the New International Commentary on the New Testament (NICNT) series. That larger book has been called "one of the best commentaries on this book of Scripture." This e-book is a shorter and more popular commentary on Acts. It reflects both Professor Bruce's careful study of Acts as well as his passion for proclaiming the Bible as God's guide for our lives.
