Hello all,

We have been informed by the publisher of the Reformed Expository Commentary that the Acts volume by Derek Thomas is no longer available for sale, either digitally or in print.

From the publisher:

"P&R recently became aware that portions of Derek Thomas’s Acts (Reformed Expository Commentary) include unattributed content from sermons by another pastor. Following a careful investigation, as well as discussions with the parties concerned, it appears that the lack of attribution resulted from unclear note-taking more than a decade before the commentary on Acts was written, and we believe it does not reflect intentional misuse on the part of the author. Nonetheless, in keeping with our editorial policy and our desire to hold to high ethical standards of transparency, we must regretfully withdraw this commentary from circulation."

This product has been removed from purchase from the Logos website, including both the individual volumes and any collections that it was contained in. 

If you already own this resource, we are not taking it from you. It is yours to keep.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I'll be happy to answer them.

Thanks all!


Product Manager, Faithlife

I find it most interesting  in that it is the only volume I own in that series...

I have this volume also. The copyright reference was 2011 so presumably its been in circulation for a while so there are probably a lot of purchasers out there. Its a disappointing thing to happen for all concerned, especially the author, but it seems to be one of those risks commentary writers face these days.  

As for me, this is the 7th commentary in my logos library for which this problem has arisen. These books were by different publishers over the years and each was of a high standard - so I have no complaints about these works. I'm also happy to keep Derek Thomas' commentary too. Keep well Paul

Another reason for Logos to add Guy Waters' commentary on Acts - currently missing from the EP Study Commentary set

I, too, have only that one in the series. It downloaded Mar 1, 2018. So I'm guessing it was part of FBOTM. (I probably would like to have more in the series; I'll have to look into them.
