N.T. Wright's translation of Acts 1-12 and commentary on the text.

Wright does well at explaining the meaning of the text in context and then seeking to draw application, as he does in all of the commentaries in this series. This time there were some strange excurses (Saul meditating on the vision of Ezekiel 1 on the way to Damascus?), yet, on the whole, much of what Wright says is spot on and well-grounded in the text.

A useful commentary when reading the book of Acts.

Kindle version: well done; maps render well and the text is mostly clear; there are a few times when there are no spaces between words. ( )
