This commentary by James Dunn takes the reader through questions of authorship, recipients, date, and purpose surrounding the book of Acts — the book that Dunn believes is the most exciting of the New Testament. Written for preachers, teachers, students, and church leaders, Dunn's commentary considers the literary structure of Acts as well as the nature of its teaching. "In this little commentary by Dunn," Scot McKnight says in his foreword, "you have insight, measured judgment about history and theology and context, and suggestions that take the preacher to the heart of what the Book of Acts can mean for us today. I always begin any study of any passage in the Book of Acts by pulling out Jimmy's commentary. I go to the others when I'm done, but often enough I got all I needed in Dunn."


James D. G. Dunn is Lightfoot Professor Emeritus of Divinity at Durham University and one of the foremost New Testament scholars in the world today. His many other books include The Oral Gospel Tradition; Jesus, Paul, and the Gospels; The Theology of Paul the Apostle; and Jesus Remembered and Beginning from Jerusalem, volumes 1 and 2 of Christianity in the Making.
