The Acts of the Apostles is the second volume in the two-part writing scholars call Luke-Acts. It continues the story begun in the Gospel of Luke, showing how the Good News offered by Jesus was eventually extended "to the end of the earth," so that Gentiles as well as Jews came to share in the blessings of God.
Luke Timothy Johnson
Luke Timothy Johnson is R. W. Woodruff Professor of New Testament and Christian Origins at Candler School of Theology, Emory University. His many other books include The Creed: What Christians Believe and Why It Matters and Brother of Jesus, Friend of God: Studies in the Letter of James, and he is the winner of the 2011 Grawemeyer Award in Religion for his Among the Gentiles: Greco-Roman Religion and Christianity.
I find all the volumes of this series to be extremely helpful in studying and understanding Scripture.

"Sacra Pagina is a valuable addition to any professional library. And it can communicate well to the Greekless who are willing to work along with it."
- Book Reviews
"I have seen Matthew, Luke, Acts, and Galations and intend to ensure that the whole series is in our library."
". . . the Sacra Pagina series is uniformly excellent and of the highest quality of both exegetical and theological content. . . . For every community, school, college, university and seminary library this series is a must have acquisition. And now in paperback, thanks to Liturgical Press, this series is affordable for a wider audience."
