“I have personally used the PDF collection of a multitude of commentaries on Acts in the Strait Gate Publications’ The Smell of the Lamp Bible Commentaries, Vol. 44. I have found it very accessible, useful, and productive. This volume is devoted to supplying a collection of over 70 commentaries on Acts and scores of other related resources. Many of these commentaries are out of print. No one would be able to collect this many good commentaries on the Book of Acts. The aim of Strait Gate Publications is to provide collections on each book of the Bible. This is an amazing tool for the pastor and Bible student. Many seminary libraries would not have the amount of different evangelical, orthodox, Biblically sound commentaries that are provided in this PDF. What an appendage to my library.”Pastor H. Rondel Rumburg, Th.M., D.Min., VA.

"This is an amazing tool which should be in the hands of all pastors and serious Bible students. You should purchase this extensive collection of commentaries for a host of reasons some of which include the cost and the organization. The cost is amazingly reasonable and the organization is simple and easy to follow. For example: all the commentaries included are arranged in alphabetical order with complete biographical information. If these were the only reasons that could be given it would be worth the price. But other reasons such as the convenience of having all these great works on this book of the Bible at your fingertips. The Smell of the Lamp Bible Commentary will assist you to quickly access the differences that may exist on a particular verse or passage. This commentary will enable you to evaluate these differences and decide if those differences are along denominational lines, theological ideas, or exegetical issues. It is a wonderful assurance to know that you have hundreds of volumes at your disposal without having the cost of all the physical books on your shelves. Finally, we all find it interesting how some otherwise excellent commentaries may overlook a particular phrase or exegetical question that is gnawing at us. But with the Smell of the Lamp Bible Commentary there will often be some volume which wrestles with that very question, and will provide us the helpful assistance we need. I recommend that you purchase this wonderful compendium of commentaries and use them to the building up of the saints in the most holy faith. — Pastor Andy Rice, Providence Baptist Church, Harrisonburg, VA.

Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. 

JESUS CHRIST (Matthew 7:13-14)
