"Keener is a scholar with gifts that come along once every century. Words like encyclopedic, magisterial, and epic come to mind when you examine 4,000 carefully argued pages on every aspect of the Book of Acts. Keener has a grasp of the ancient world like few scholars anywhere, but he also has a heart for the church and its mission."

"Keener's magnum opus, Acts: An Exegetical Commentary, is finally complete! This is the most in-depth study of Acts we have ever seen. . . . These volumes provide a great synthetization of all current scholarship on the book of Acts. We would recommend this as your first-stop commentary, when you preach from the book of Acts."
