Format: Hardcover
There are better commentaries on Acts, but this is the one that most other modern commentators have built upon. The introduction is very brief, but the exegesis is solid and lucid. Bruce provides excellent background material and the work is very helpful when used along with the work of Ben Witherington (Socio-Rhetorical Commentary published by Eerdmans), and I. Howard Marshall (Tyndale series).
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.

F.F. Bruce is a great scholar and many of his commentaries have held the attention of many pastors and laymen to this day. No matter what your view is of his conclusions, his exegesis is almost always a force to be reckoned with.
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.

This commentary on Acts offers a great deal of historical background on the people, places, and events of the 1st century Christian church. In some places it gets a little bogged down with the names of all the people, but quite often Bruce offers interesting insights into the climate of the times. Taking the time to slow down and review some of the accounts in Acts really opens your eyes to details that are easily missed, or left out in the translation. There could have been more discussion of theological issues in the commentary, but Bruce seemed to be content in describing historical aspects. The commentary did convey a respect for the book of Acts as the Word of God, and would be a good place for a reader to get some additional insight into Acts.

I haven't really gotten a great deal from this book... although I know that F.F.Bruce is one of the great scholars on the book of Acts. I know they say that sometimes the art and artist critique the critic-- and what you say reveals more about you yourself than about the great master. That could definitely be the case here. No doubt this man 1) knows the Scripture, and 2) has written and ministered with the power and authority of God...
But, if you can only buy one book (commentary) on Acts, go try Adjith Fernando's NIV Application Commentary.
