Anyone know any good books that focuses Paul & (or VERSUS) Peter's ministries in the book of Acts?

Or how to find them specifically in Logos? (sorry I'm not really good with those "strings")

TIA

Craig Keener's commentary on Acts has some good information. Volume 1 chapter 7 is all about Acts and Paul while Chapter 16 has a section on Peter-Paul parallels.

Any books that does comparative analysis on their sermons, ministry approach (Peter to the Jews & Paul to the Gentiles), and gospel presentations... (or charts maybe?)

Thanks guys...

Edit: maybe something like this (or better) http://loveintruth.com/amf-docs/gpia-peter.htm

also something like this https://repositorio.ucp.pt/bitstream/10400.14/15062/1/Binder1.pdf

But both analysis (Peter vs Paul) in one long chapter.

This might help: https://www.logos.com/product/56533/mobile-ed-nt217-key-events-and-speeches-in-acts 

Or buy just the audio, which is cheaper: https://www.logos.com/product/152391/mobile-ed-nt217-key-events-and-speeches-in-acts 

Also, run a search on “speeches in Acts” and most commentaries will have a brief section on them.

Search suggestion for articles about Peter and Paul that mention Acts early in article:

{[field heading,largetext] Paul NEAR Peter) BEFORE 33 WORDS Acts

I found this one in my library. Going by the Table of Contents it looks like it may provide some useful information. EDIT - Especially Chapters 6 and 7

Thanks guys & girl for the inputs.

I also just bought a book from Amazon that's not available in Logos.

Peter and Paul in Acts: A Comparison of Their Ministries: A Study in New Testament Apostolic Ministry

https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00BOG1DJQ/ref=docs-os-doi_0 

I hope it'll show up in Logos someday.
