The book of Acts is one of the most exciting books of the Bible! Filled with adventure, it tells of thrilling escapes, people in peril, conflict and intrigue, travel through the ancient world, storms and shipwrecks. Now, you can join Pastor Ray Stedman as he brings the history, adventure, and profound but practical meaning of this book to life in readable, everyday language.
The book of Acts bridges the gap between the Gospels and Paul’s letter to the Romans, showing how a small band of Jewish believers in Jerusalem became a multi-ethnic force for global transformation. This is the secret strategy by which God changes the world: Men and women, possessed by Jesus Christ, indwelt by the Holy Spirit, manifest the life and power of God the Father. That’s the secret of authentic Christianity!
The book of Acts is “unfinished,” says Stedman, in the sense that the church today continues to “write new chapters” as it moves into the 21st century. Join this beloved preacher and teacher as he shares insights and principles from these ancient pages that will transform your life. 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 intends you to be.
So read on and discover your place in God’s unfinished book!
