If I could rate this book higher, I would do so. It is a fantastic resource for studying the intricacies of the Greek in Acts. It is not for the beginner or the faint of heart, but if you want to delve deeply into the subtleties of Luke's writing and improve your exegesis skills, this is the place to start. This is not a traditional commentary that gives background and various viewpoints on theology, but rather provides detailed grammatical and syntactical analysis. The important or difficult words in each verse are parsed and in some cases classified (participle of attendant circumstance, dative of advantage, etc.) and then the discourse is analyzed at the clause and sentence levels. Here is one example of the depth of analysis from 7.55: εστωτα. Prf act masc acc sg ιστημι. Although the participle could be taken as attributive, it is better to view it as the complement in an object-complement double accusative construction. The latter places emphasis not on the person who is seen, but on what the person is doing. (The actual text includes diacriticals but I omitted them because they are unpredictable in browsers.) The book is also in a handy, portable size, but it is paperback and doesn't lie open without some external force. I can't wait for the forthcoming titles in this series to be released!
