Explanation - The following list includes not only commentaries but other Christian works by well known evangelical writers. Most of the resources below are newer works (written after 1970) which previously were available only for purchase in book form or in a Bible computer program. The resources are made freely available by archive.org but have several caveats - (1) they do not allow copy and paste, (2) they can only be checked out for one hour (but can be checked out immediately when your hour expires giving you time to read or take notes on a lengthy section) and (3) they require creating an account which allows you to check out the books free of charge. To set up an account click archive.org and then click the picture of the person in right upper corner and enter email and a password. That's all you have to do. Then you can read these more modern resources free of charge! I have read or used many of these resources but not all of them so ultimately you will need to be a Berean (Acts 17:11+) as you use them. I have also selected works that are conservative and Biblically sound. If you find one that you think does not meet those criteria please send an email at https://www.preceptaustin.org/
Preaching Luke-Acts by Allen, Ronald J.
James Rosscup - This conservative commentary is a detailed work in the Greek and is well-written. The author did the famous Greek-English lexicon and two books on alleged contradictions.
Acts of the apostles by Allen, Ronald J
Turning to God : a study of conversion in the book of Acts and today by Barclay, William See discussion of his orthodoxy especially the article "The Enigmatic William Barclay".
The Acts of the Apostles: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale New Testament Commentaries) E. M. Blaiklock
The Preacher's Outline & Sermon Bible : New Testament, King James Version (POSB) - Acts, Romans, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians, Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians - This is a very useful resource which always includes numerous related cross-references. It will be of aid to you preaching and teaching.
Acts - Bible Study Commentary by Bruce, F. F. (1982) 124 pages - this is not the top rated NICNT version
The book of the Acts (New International Commentary on the New Testament) by Bruce, F. F (1988) 584 pages
Rosscup - This work, first issued in 1954, is now revised not long before Bruce died, with a new translation of the Greek text in place of the ASV. The bibliographical lists are extensively updated in footnotes, Bruce has interacted with later studies, arranged comments on fewer verses, and achieved a more lucid style in places. However, the basic verse-by-verse commentary remains substantially the same. It remains the finest commentary on Acts as to exposition in detail. Bruce points to I. H. Marshall’s commentary for detail on Luke’s theology. He shows a fine grasp of pertinent history, a sound explanation of most passages, and insights on many of the problems.
Keith Mathison (Lignonier) - First published in 1954, F.F. Bruce’s commentary on Acts in the NICNT series soon became a standard conservative evangelical commentary. In 1988, his commentary was revised and updated. It still remains one of the best commentaries on this book of Scripture.
Tim Challies - F.F. Bruce has two commentaries on Acts and the contribution to the NICNT series is regarded as the stronger of the two. Not only that, but it is regarded as one of the very best works on the book. A couple of commentators on the commentaries point out that Bruce is especially strong on the historical aspect of Acts.
The Acts of the Apostles: the Greek text with introduction and commentary by Bruce, F. F. (1990) 608 pages. Somewhat Technical.
New Bible Commentary - (1994) Bruce, F. F. “The Acts of the Apostles,” in New Bible Commentary. A boiled down version of Bruce’s expertise, quite helpful in itself.
Acts by Calvin, Jean Crossway Classic Commentaries.
Cyril Barber - Contains all of the remarkable insights of the first English edition without the stilted language. This is a work that deserves a place in every pastor’s library.
The Acts; an exposition by Erdman, Charles R
James Rosscup - Concise treatments are given to each of the N. T. books. The main value of the set lies in its clear synthesis which helps the student grasp the flow of thought as he moves through a book. Erdman possessed a lucid writing style. He was amillennial.
The Acts of the Apostles a new translation with introduction and commentary by Fitzmyer, Joseph A
Mathison at Ligonier gives it runner up status in best commentaries on Acts.
Cyril Barber - Begins with a translation of the entire book, followed by a closely reasoned explanation of title, authorship, date, and purpose of Acts. Essays discuss the text and sources, the composition and form-critical analysis, language and style, and historical character of Acts, etc. The exposition combines historic and linguistic data, but offers minimal help to preachers.
Acts by Gangel, Kenneth - This is more like a workbook with questions and short explanatory notes.
Cyril Barber commenting on Gangel's more extensive work in the Holman NT Commentary says "Clearly written, and with the theme of Luke’s second work cogently presented, this commentary does justice to the biblical text and the purpose for which this historic account was produced. Gangel follows the best interpretative tradition and then applies the principles in the best possible manner.
Luke-Acts and New Testament historiography by Green, Joel B
The apostolic church by Harrison, Everett Falconer, 1902- Not a commentary on book of Acts but the church that begins in Acts.
Acts and the history of earliest Christianity by Hengel, Martin,
Cyril Barber - Asserts the essential reliability of the book of Acts and examines Luke's historical-theological methodology.
An introduction to the New Testament - the Gospels and Acts Volume 1 by Hiebert, D. Edmond
Cyril Barber - Describes the regional, social and cultural milieu of the Roman Empire during the first century A.D. Part 1 covers such topics as travel by ship as well as along the Roman roads of Asia Minor; also food shortages, diverse Roman religions, the urban elites, and the emergence of the house church. Part 2 describes in detail the various Roman provinces and the establishment of the early church. A final chapter discusses Luke’s geographic limits and the Jewish and Roman cultures it contained.
The Book of Acts in its Graeco-Roman setting Gill, David W., and Conrad Gempf, eds
A commentary on the original text of the Acts of the Apostles by Hackett, Horatio Balch e
Cyril Barber - Insightful, reliable, and always worth consulting. Reprinted from the revised edition of 1882.
The book of Acts by Horton, Stanley Pentecostal perspectiv
The message of Acts in the history of redemption by Johnson, Dennis E.
Mathison at Ligonier gives it runner up status in best commentaries on Acts.
Cyril Barber - Examines the major themes of Acts and links the OT with the NT while explaining the contribution of Acts to the history of redemption. Though not a commentary, this study will enrich each reader’s understanding of the history of the period.
Acts : an exegetical commentary by Keener, Craig S., 1208 pages
Keith Mathison (Lignonier) - Craig Keener’s four-volume commentary on Acts is not for everyone. At 4,500 pages, few will ever read all of it. But if you are looking for an exhaustive commentary that deals with every conceivable question, then, clear out about a foot and a half of shelf space and pick up this commentary (bend your knees when you do so). This will probably be the standard evangelical commentary on Acts for at least the next half century. For those who do not need a commentary with a bibliography longer than most other books, Keener also has an abridged version of his commentary that is only 635 pages.
Jerusalem to Rome; studies in the Book of Acts by Kent, Homer Austin,
Cyril Barber - In recounting the beginning and expansion of the early church, the writer reveals the personal struggles of those who participated in the events recorded by Luke. The inclusion of discussion questions makes this an ideal volume for adult Bible study groups.
Acts Augsburg Commentary on the New Testament by Krodel, Gerhard (Lutheran perspective)
Cyril Barber - Designed for laypeople. Explains in non-technical language the essential thrust of this portion of the canon.
Cyril Barber - This volume is intended to supplement the indispensible work of A. J. and M. B. Mattill, A Classified Bibliography of Literature on the Acts of the Apostles (which concluded with entries up to 1962). The material in this volume is arranged alphabetically. The indexing to periodical literature is impressive. It succeeds in bringing within the purview of the student or researcher a wealth of important data.
The Acts of the apostles by Morgan, G. Campbell
Studies in the Acts of the apostles by Moule, C. F. D Short work (104 pages) by respected Anglican pastor.
Acts : based on the Revised standard version by Neil, William
Cyril Barber - New Century Bible Commentary. 1981. Based on the RSV This handy commentary does not provide an exposition of the theme but, rather, furnishes readers with perceptive comments on select words or phrases.
The Communicator's Commentary. Acts by Ogilvie, Lloyd John - (This is now known as the Preacher's Commentary and states that the goal is to aid preachers and teachers.)
Drumbeat of Love : the unlimited power of the Spirit as revealed in the Book of Acts by Ogilvie, Lloyd John
Cyril Barber - The reissue in an overpriced paperback format of one of the great commentaries on the book of Acts.
Growth of the Body : [Acts 13-20] by Stedman, Ray C
The Words of the Apostles by Stier, Rudolf;
Cyril Barber - Examines the public ministry of the apostles and expounds each message with insight and skill. A must for every student of the book of Acts.
The strength of an exacting passion : a study of Acts 18:18-28:31 by Swindoll, Charles
The church of the first days : lectures on the Acts of the Apostles by Vaughan, Charles John
Cyril Barber - Vaughan achieved justifiable acclaim for his expositional commentaries on Romans, Philippians, and Revelation. C. H. Spurgeon wrote of this work on Acts, "Not only does Dr. Vaughan expound his text in the ablest manner, but he introduces passages of Scripture so aptly that he suggests discourses:' This is a work of rare merit, and it will be appreciated by those who use it wisely.
Acts : Bible study commentary by Vaughan, Curtis - Conservative. Simple, easy to understand comments.
Be Dynamic (Acts 1-12) by Warren Wiersbe
Be Daring : put your faith where the action is (Acts 13-28) by Wiersbe, Warren Cyril Barber - Continues the author's popular exposition of the Book of Acts. Shows how the power of God is available to work through ordinary people to accomplish His purposes in the Church and in the world. Recommended.
Wiersbe Commentary on Acts in Pdf - 88 pages
The Bible Exposition Commentary by Wiersbe, Warren W - All NT books in one source. Excellent. Rosscup - One of America’s most appreciated staunchly evangelical Bible conference teachers gives diligent, refreshing expositions. These are all of his 23 separate, earlier books in the “Be” series on the New Testament. He strikes a particular appeal with lay people as he crystallizes sections, deals with some of the verses, handles certain problems and backgrounds and applies principles. He is premillennial.
With the Word - Devotional Commentary - Chapter by Chapter Warren Wiersbe - Excellent to help summarize a chapter.
Wiersbe's Expository Outlines on the New Testament by Wiersbe, Warren W - helpful ponts for teaching and preaching
Cyril Barber - This is a book of exceptional merit. Pastors, missionaries, and Christian workers will profit from its use. Wiersbe introduces each book of the NT, provides an outline, and then furnishes his readers with a chapter-by-chapter discussion of the contents. The homiletic style is a “plus.” Recommended.
Acts by Williams, David John Mathison at Ligonier gives it runner up status of best commentaries on Acts.

NIV Cultural Backgrounds Study Bible. Bringing to Life the Ancient World of Scripture Keener, Craig and Walton, John. Editors (2017)

The Word in life Study Bible - Very interesting format. Not your routine study Bible. Worth checking the very informative notes. (e.g., here is a picture of Jesus' post-resurrection appearances.)
Wycliffe Bible Commentary - OT and NT - Everett F Harrison - Editor of New Testament. Uses the KJV. Charles F Pfeiffer - Editor of the Old Testament. 1560 pages (1962). s Less detailed than the KJV Bible Commentary.
The Experiencing God Study Bible : the Bible for knowing and doing the will of God - Blackaby, Henry (1996) 1968 pages - CHECK THIS ONE! Each chapter begins with several questions under the title "PREPARE TO MEET GOD." Then you will interesting symbols before many of the passages. The chapter ends with a "DID YOU NOTICE?" question. This might make a "dry chapter" jump off the page! R
Believer's Bible Commentary by MacDonald, William (1995) 2480 pages - Dr. John MacArthur, Jr. - "Concise yet comprehensive - the most complete single-volume commentary I have seen." Warren Wiersbe - "For the student who is serious about seeing Christ in the Word."
Compact Bible commentary by Radmacher, Earl D; Allen, Ronald Barclay; House, H Wayne, et al - 954 pages. Multiple contributors to the comments which are often verse by verse. The comments are brief but meaty and can really help your study through a given book. A sleeper in my opinion.

Dictionary of Biblical Imagery - free for use online with no restrictions (i.e., you do not need to borrow this book). Editors Leland Ryken, J C Wilhoit, Tremper Longman III - This is a potential treasure chest to aid your preaching and teaching as it analyzes the meaning of a host of Biblical figures of speech. Clue - use the "One-page view" which then allows you to copy and paste text. One downside is there is no index, so you need to search 3291 pages for entries which are alphabetical.
Dictionary of Paul and his letters IVP Series The Dictionary of Paul and His Letters is a one-of-a-kind reference work. Following the format of its highly successful companion volume, the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels, this Dictionary is designed to bring students, teachers, ministers and laypeople abreast of the established conclusions and significant recent developments in Pauline scholarship. No other single reference work presents as much information focused exclusively on Pauline theology, literature, background and scholarship.
Dictionary of the later New Testament & its developments IVP Series The third of IVP's critically acclaimed series of dictionaries of the New Testament provides focused study on the often-neglected portions of the New Testament: Acts, Hebrews, the General Epistles, and Revelation. Furthermore, its scope goes beyond the life of the New Testament church to include the work of the apostolic fathers and early Christianity up through the middle of the second century.
Dictionary of New Testament background IVP Series In a time when our knowledge of the ancient Mediterranean world has grown by leaps and bounds, this volume sets out for readers the wealth of Jewish and Greco-Roman background that should inform our reading and understanding of the New Testament and early Christianity. The Dictionary of New Testament Background takes full advantage of the flourishing study of the Dead Sea Scrolls and offers individual articles focused on the most important scrolls. In addition, the Dictionary encompasses the fullness of second-temple Jewish writings, whether pseudepigraphic, rabbinic, parables, proverbs, histories or inscriptions. Articles abound on aspects of Jewish life and thought, including family, purity, liturgy and messianism. The full scope of Greco-Roman culture is displayed in articles ranging across language and rhetoric, literacy and book culture, religion and cults, honor and shame, patronage and benefactors, travel and trade, intellectual movements and ideas, and ancient geographical perspectives. No other reference work presents so much in one place for students of the New Testament. Here an entire library of scholarship is made available in summary form.

THE LIST BELOW IS FOR GREEK (AND HEBREW) WORD STUDIES
IF YOU WANT TO DIG A LITTLE DEEPER INTO THE TEXT
See also the list of Word Study Resources
The Complete Word Study Dictionary: New Testament by Zodhiates, Spiros - This is my "go to" resource for Greek word studies. One on the best lexicons for laymen. Highly Recommended for Greek Word Studies to aid your interpretation of a passage.
Analytical Lexicon of the Greek New Testament by Friberg, Timothy. Shorter definitions than Zodhiates but does an excellent job in summarizing the various nuances of a specific Greek word. One of my favorites.
Shorter Lexicon of the Greek New Testament by Gingrich, F. Wilbur. Similar to Friberg but shorter definitions. Gingrich however gives more Scriptures for each nuance, whereas Friberg generally gives only one representative Scripture.
The New Linguistic and Exegetical Key to the Greek New Testament by Rogers, Cleon - A sleeper. This book is a gold mine of little gems on individual Greek words in any NT passage you are studying. If you have time it is always worth checking out! I use it for my Greek word studies all the time.
Word meanings in the New Testament - Matthew-Revelation by Ralph Earle. Strictly speaking this is not a lexicon, but it offers insights on select words in a verse by verse format (but not every verse is included in the analysis). This resource is worth checking if you have time as it can occasionally give some wonderful insights on a specific Greek word.
New Testament Words - William Barclay - very interesting resource - covers about 70 NT Greek words in Barclay's unique style. On page 289 there is a helpful index of English words with the corresponding Greek word, in turn followed by the places Barclay described them in New Testament Words and in his Daily Study Bible series (see list of DSB commentaries here). E.g., take the Greek word for "Covetousness" which is pleonexia and is found in New Testament Words on page 61 and pp 233-235 and is also described in the Daily Study Bible entries for : Mark 7:14-23; Ro 1:28-32; Eph. 4:17-24; Col. 3:5. So you can click the DSB commentary on Mark 7 and scroll down to Mark 7:14 to see Barclay's entry for pleonexia which concludes "Pleonexia ( G4124) is that lust for having which is in the heart of the man who sees happiness in things instead of in God." Interesting!
Greek-English lexicon of the New Testament : based on semantic domains - Louw Nida. Brief but nice definitions. Not easy to use - you need to know some Greek. Classifies Greek words into 93 "semantic domains" (see list on page XXV) and if you can categorize the word you are looking for in one of the domains, it can help find the specific word you are interested in.
Kittel's Theological Dictionary of the New Testament : abridged in one volume (TDNT) - Classic ("Little Kittel") work summarizing the 10 volume set by Kittel. For most of us the abridged definition is "more than enough!"
A Greek-English lexicon of the New Testament, and other early Christian literature (BDAG); by Bauer, Walter, More detailed definitions but need to know Greek. Zodhiates and Friberg are much easier to use.
Liddell and Scott's Greek-English lexicon, abridged : the little Liddell by Liddell, Henry George. The abridged version. You need to know Greek to use.
Vine's Expository Dictionary of Old Testament and New Testament Words - pdf. The old standby. You can also borrow Vine's complete expository dictionary of Old and New Testament words
