Martyn Lloyd-Jones continues his Studies in the Book of Acts
with a look at some of the fundamentals of the gospel message and
what makes it so compelling.

Acts 8 chronicles some of the highs and lows of the early
church. While believers mourn the killing of Stephen and Saul
ravages the church, the gospel is being proclaimed to the
Samaritans, and many are coming to faith in Christ. In reading
about these events we find many issues that lie at the heart of the
gospel-the new birth, the work of the Holy Spirit, the purpose of
Christ's death, and more.

In Compelling Christianity Martyn Lloyd-Jones continues
his Studies in the Book of Acts with a look at these central
issues. He shows readers that the most pressing problems of his
time-such as the Vietnam War-as well as those of our time are
addressed by the gospel message because it addresses humanity's
root problem, sin. It is a permanently relevant message that is
just as compelling today as it was to the Samaritans and the
Ethiopian eunuch who heard it-and believed it-two thousand years
