The Acts of the Apostles: A New Translation with Introduction and Commentary
Joseph A. Fitzmyer, S.J.
Anchor Bible Series 31 (New York: Doubleday, 1998), 861 pp., $45.00
Reviewed by Justin Taylor
“A modern commentary in the classic style”—that’s how Joseph Fitzmyer describes his dense volume on the Acts of the Apostles in the highly respected Anchor Bible series. By this, he means that his commentary employs the historical-critical method “to [set] forth the religious and theological message that the author sought to convey” (that’s the classic part), while at the same time explaining that message “in an actualized form”—that is, in a way that makes sense to modern believers.
