DEREK THOMAS ACTS COMMENTARY, CHRISTIAN BOOK AWARD FINALIST
Acts (part of the Reformed Expository Commentary series) by Derek W. H. Thomas, has been selected as a finalist for the 2012 Christian Book Awards. The Evangelical Christian Publishers Association (ECPA), sponsor of the annual awards, notes that the winners represent "Christian publishing's finest books and Bibles of the year." A total of forty finalists in seven categories from sixteen publishing companies are included among the finalists.
In his exposition of Acts, Thomas points to evidence of the continuing ministry of Jesus Christ through the Holy Spirit. He applies biblical truth in contemporary context as he presents lessons for missions, church growth, and Christians' engagement with postmodernity.
Derek W. H. Thomas, Ph.D., is Minister of Preaching and Teaching at First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina, and Distinguished Visiting Professor of Systematic and Historical Theology at Reformed Theological Seminary. Dr. Thomas is the editorial director for the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals and is the editor of its online magazine, reformation21.org.
