If you’re looking for a good mixture of being pastor friendly and economical, you should look up this volume in the highly-regarded New American Commentary (NAC) series. John Polhill is comfortable in this territory as he has also given us the helpful “Paul and his Letters” with the same publisher. He’s had two decades of teaching and preaching on Acts and it shows in this book. In the first paragraph of his preface, he tells us that he aims this commentary at pastors first.

A good solid, exegetical commentary on the book of Acts. The author does a fine job heavily breaking down the passages of Acts and offering a solid, Biblically sound commentary of the passages of Scripture. I would highly recommend it to readers needing a more solid understanding of the book of Acts.
