Join this beloved preacher and teacher as he takes you through the exciting book of Acts, the pivotal book of the New Testament. The book of Acts is "unfinished," says Stedman, in the sense that the church continues to "write new chapters" as it moves into the 21st century. Ray Stedman's passion for biblical exposition will nourish your spiritual health, encourage your growth in knowledge of Scripture, and help you grow into the mature saint God intended you to be.
