Compelling Christianity

Overview

Overview

Acts 8 chronicles some of the historical heights and valleys of the early church. While believers mourn Stephen's death and Saul seeks to ravage the church, the gospel message is spreading into regions beyond Jerusalem, and many are coming to faith in Christ.

In the sixth and final volume of Studies in the book of Acts, Lloyd-Jones works from this essential truth, reminding us that there are compelling and vital reasons to consider Christianity even beyond the historical record. Exploring many issues that lie at the heart of the gospel, such as the empowering work of the Holy Spirit and the all-encompassing purpose of Christ's death, Lloyd-Jones also speaks to the cultural deceptions that claim Christianity is nothing more than "a personal matter" or "just another teaching."

Keeping other world religions in view, this classic work offers penetrating perspective as to how the Christian church and faith differ from all others, making the message of this book a particularly poignant one in today's pluralistic culture.

The book of Acts records some of the most powerful events in the New Testament. The birth of the church. The coming of the Holy Spirit. Bold preaching and dramatic missionary journeys. Saved souls and transformed lives. It not only provides insight into the growth of the apostolic church, but can encourage and challenge your heart today.

Martyn Lloyd-Jones preached on the first eight chapters of this dynamic Bible book during the peak of his ministry. Now those expository sermons are gathered together in a six-volume collection. His language is simple and clear so that the truth of the Scriptures would be available to all who desire to understand. Recognized as one of the twentieth century's most gifted preachers, he is known for his astute analysis of man's condition and his persuasive proclamation of the gospel as the only true solution.
