10 Helpful Books on the Acts of the Apostles

As we move forward in our worship at New Covenant Presbyterian Church, I am planning on starting a sermon series on the Acts of the Apostles. This seems to be fitting with a new church. The book of Acts can be summarized as "the acts of Jesus Christ through His apostles by the Holy Spirit." It is filled with all the excitement and wonder of the dawning of the new age and the ministry of the Spirit in the New Covenant. It lays the foundation for the nature of the church, the life of the church, and the evangelistic ministry of the church. The following are some of the books and commentaries on Acts that I have found helpful. If you have any others please feel free to mention them:

1. Thomas Peck Miscellanies of Rev. Thomas Peck (Includes a series of sermon on various portions of the book of Acts)2. Horatio B. Hackett A Commentary on the Original Text of the Acts of the Apostles (An outstanding exegetical commentary on the book. Interestingly, my father went to Horatio B. Hackett Middle School in Philadelphia, PA. I wonder how many know that it is named after this orthodox evangelical scholar?) 3. Paton J. Gloag A Critical and Exegetical Commentary on the Acts of Apostles 4. Charles J. Vaughan The Church of the First Days 5. John Dick Lectures on Some Passages of the Acts of the Apostles 6. Horatius Bonar Light and Truth: The Acts and Larger Epistles 7. John Calvin Commentary on Acts #1 Commentary on Acts #2 8. Dennis E. Johnson Let's Study Acts 9. David G. Peterson The Acts of the Apostles 10. J.A. Alexander The Acts of the Apostles
