How did Christianity become one of the most important religions in world history? To answer this question, we must begin with the book of Acts, which chronicles the tumultuous days of the early Church and the spread of Christianity in the years following Jesus’ death and resurrection.

In this insightful volume, Pastor Hughes leads readers to rediscover the history of the New Testament Church, examining key events in Acts such as the bold preaching of Christ’s early followers, the dramatic persecution of Christians, and the perilous missionary journeys of the Apostle Paul.

This encouraging commentary on a central book in the New Testament will challenge you to walk with Christ and serve him more effectively through the power of the Holy Spirit.

I have become a collector of commentaries ever since my seminary days in the 1990s. As such, I am only going to recommend the best overall commentary for each book of the Bible on this site. My favorite Acts commentary is that by Hughes. It is clear and insightful and packed with great illustration and application ideas. I would say as an aside that you might want to augment his commentary with F.F. Bruce in the NICNT series.

Hughes’s critically acclaimed series is known for its clear exposition, readability, and practical application. This installment details the growth of early Christianity with the spreading flame of the Holy Spirit. A great resource for pastors, lay leaders, and any student of the Bible. 368 pages, hardcover from Crossway Books. [Full Review]
