A readable but forgettable commentary. Jaroslav Pelikan brings an awareness of the first few centuries of Christian theological development to the reading of Acts, which is not uninteresting. The result is a discovery of subsequent controversies and questions still in infancy and an early church just as confusing, contradictory, but in many ways laudable and courageous as the church of any era. Of special note are his sections on the uncreated light and the "gospel of the forty days." ( )
