David G. Peterson has written an extensive, literary-theological study of Acts

Peterson's commentary is robust and evangelical. The introduction which is nearly 100 pages is quite excellent. His comments focus on the story as it unfolds and the overall theology expressed in the book rather than redaction and text-critical issues. I wish it did not transliterate the Greek, but for some this is preferable.

Peterson's commentary is outstanding! I have used this commentary extensively for personal research and as a required textbook at the college and seminary level. Peterson's strengths include analysis of the literary structure of the book and his theological synthesis, both in the introduction and throughout the book. This commentary ranks with Bock's Baker volume (and soon also Walton's WBC offering) as the top evangelical Acts commentaries.

Having just spend the last year working on a dissertation in the book of Acts i can safely say that if i could have only one commentary on my shelves on the book of Acts it would be Peterson's. It is thorough, addresses well all the main issues, takes the best from previous research, and includes both technical and theological comment. An outstanding commentary.
