MARK ADAMS - Sermons

JOSEPH A ALEXANDER Acts Commentary (1857, 1866)

James Rosscup: "This work, originally out in 1857, has proved helpful to many, though it is now far out of date as to literature commenting on Acts. For many basic details verse by verse, it still is of good value and often will help on word meaning and special problems. The fact that it was reprinted is indicative of its respected place in Acts studies." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors)

Cyril Barber -  A beautifully produced work that brings within the reach of the busy pastor the benefits of this commentator's prodigious labors. A warmly devotional treatment. (The Minister's Library Volume 2)

D Edmond Hiebert - An exhaustive exposition of Acts by a conservative Presbyterian scholar of the past century. Gives a precise interpretation of the text on the basis of the original. Omission of technical matters makes it suitable to the English reader.

JACK ARNOLD SERMONS BOOK OF ACTS

WILLIAM ARNOT Acts Commentary

Cyril Barber - These sermons reveal Arnot's thorough awareness of the original text and the milieu of the early church. His material is provocative as well as edifying. Both laypeople and pastors should read this book eagerly in order to better determine the course of the church, its commitments, and the criteria of its fellowship. Recommended.(The Minister's Library Volume 2)

WILLIAM BARCLAY'S DAILY STUDY BIBLE

Hiebert - Divides Acts into brief paragraphs, with the author's translation of the portion printed at the beginning. The comments are generally devotional in character, containing various religious and literary quotations. The author is at his best in his discriminating discussion of Greek words. The interpretation is liberal in spots.

HORATIO B HACKETT A Commentary on the Original Text of the Acts of the Apostles

D Edmond Hiebert - A full verse-by-verse commentary by a conservative Baptist professor of the past century. Still valuable for a clear unfolding of the text of Acts.

D Edmond Hiebert - Expository messages on Acts by a noted Bible teacher-preacher. His exposition aims at setting forth the spiritual force and method of early Christianity. Stress is placed on the variety of ways in which the Spirit is seen at work in Acts. Offers many illuminating insights.

RICHARD RACKHAM The Acts of the Apostles: An Exposition 1904 

Rosscup writes "This is a very good though at times terse commentary from the standpoint of Greek and, historical background. Rackham was conservative but amillennial. Verse by verse he often offers good help, and he has addenda on topics such as breaking of bread, Sadducees and Pharisees, etc." (Commentaries for Biblical Expositors)

D Edmond Hiebert - A thorough (513-page), informative exposition by a conservative Anglican scholar. Full treatment of introductory problems. Has a full index. One of the standard older commentaries on Acts.
