Experience Pentecost. Look on as one hundred thirty converts shake a city. Meet Paul. Go with him as he plants the first Gentile church. Extend the kingdom’s power and see the enemy upset. Walk with Paul as he travels to Corinth, Antioch, Ephesus and beyond. For those desiring to be a part of God’s action in their churches, their communities and throughout the world, there is nothing that will help more than thoroughly understanding the book of Acts and applying what we can learn from it. Acts was designed to be God’s training manual for Christians. It worked in the early church and it works in the postmodern world. The reader’s study of Acts in The Book of Acts will bring new intimacy with the Spirit and new joy in doing His will.
