This was a very good book. It is about the apostles, mostly Paul, on their journey's. Since Jesus has risen into heaven it is up to Paul and the other apostles to spread the word of God to the world.

The Acts of the Apostles is a great book in the bible. The book mostly focused on Saul who's name later changed to Paul. The book talked about how Paul changed and turned around his life to follow in God's way. It also talked about his travels and what Paul went through. There was many good quotes in here that are good to follow. If you want to learn more about Saul/Paul and about God's way you should really read this book in the bible.

The acts of the apostles is all about Saul{Paul} and his journeys. It is a really good spiritaul book. It teaches you how far you can go for God. It also teaches how to debate with other religions. I give this 5 stars because it happened, and it seems like an impossibility to do all he did. For example, he went everywhere from Athens, to Antioch.

Have used this commentary now on two different passages, and have found this commentary extremely helpful. I have read and interacted with Fitzmyer before, so I am not surprised.
