I must admit that the introduction in this volume seems inadequate, but Bruce provides a much better introduction in his commentary on the Greek text of Acts which is still available. At any rate, this is still a very valuable and helpful contribution to the study of Acts.
Moderate/conservative and reformed in his roots, this commentary wins five stars because of it's valuable sholarship. I would also recommend Acts commentaries by I. Marshall Howard (Tyndale) and Richard Longenecker (Expositor's) if you are looking for exegesis and sholarly contribution... if you want "application" and "light devotional" material there are plenty of others to choose from (that are generally mediocre in terms of interpreting and explaining the meaning of the text).
A word of caution to the traditional "charismatic": You may not agree with all he has to say about the traditional "baptism of the Spirit" proof text passages... I still recommend reading it so that you may be challenged to interpret Acts again.
But, if you can only buy one book (commentary) on Acts, go try Adjith Fernando's NIV Application Commentary.
