While the commentary tradition has, with some notable exceptions, shifted away from philology to take up questions of the social values, rhetorical conventions, and narrative strategies, this volume provides the textual, philological, and grammatical essentials to any act of interpretation. By working through this text systematically, readers will not only gain a firmer grasp on the peculiar shape of Acts' grammar, but given Acts' length and complexity, they will also become better equipped to approach the other New Testament documents with increased confidence.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Teachers and students of the Greek New Testament have long lacked resources for book-by-book lexical, grammatical, and textual analysis. The Book of Acts benefits especially from Parsons' and Culy's thorough, careful, exhaustive treatment of the book's syntax and vocabulary. Their work instantly moves to the front rank of necessary reference books for all readers of Acts; it will contribute tremendously to the thoughtful interpretation of the Acts of the Apostles in the Church as well as the Academy. A.K.M. Adam, Associate Professor of New Testament, Seabury-Western Theological Seminary
Mikeal Parsons and Martin Culy have produced a handbook on the Greek text of the book of Acts that will be of great help to students and scholars alike. -- Craig A. Evans, Acadia Divinity College -- Bulletin for Biblical Research
