Willimon's concise, theological-pastoral commentary capably accomplishes the goals of the Interpretation series- specifically geared towards preaching. This one could have some more filling out, but it's still a good option for getting a sense of how the preacher can unpack Acts in a homiletical context.

I love this commentary, but I must say up front that William Willimon's Acts commentary in the Interpretation series SHOULD NOT supplement a technical or historical commentary on the book. It is very brief (at only 197 pages) and does not deal with every verse of Acts. However, as a devotional and homiletical commentary it is very good. Willimon must be a good preacher, because much of this commentary is written beautifully and persuasively. I find it to be extremely useful as the commentary I read either first or last in my list of Acts commentaries. I read it first to get the theological gist of a particular passage, or I read it last to acquire the numerous and brilliant applicational insights from Willimon. The Interpretation series' books are also inexpensive, which is a big plus for me.
