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."

Originally published in 1996 by Epworth, and re-released as a stand alone, this is a non-technical, expository commentary, which doesn't wade into commenting on commentaries, as some often do (in fact, there is basically no interaction with secondary sources). This commentary succeeds in its purpose of expounding the text in an accessible way for a broad audience.
