By Derek W. H. Thomas

The church in our time simply loses sight of her project to witness to the resurrected Christ. learning Acts identifies us with the early church and how the gospel formed her as she all started witnessing in Judea and carrying on with, in concentric circles, “to the top of the earth.” Acts reminds us that the tale of the church is still incomplete—that there keeps to this present day an “Acts 29.”

We face relentless competition as our postmodern international mirrors the realm of the apostles. Planting and growing to be church buildings in such an atmosphere poses specific demanding situations. however, Acts truly demonstrates that no problem can stand up to the ability of the Holy Spirit. As he did within the early church, the Holy Spirit teaches us in Acts to “expect nice things.”

As are all of the books within the Reformed Expository observation sequence, this exposition of Acts is out there to either pastors and lay readers. every one quantity within the sequence offers exposition that offers cautious consciousness to the biblical textual content, is doctrinally Reformed, makes a speciality of Christ during the lens of redemptive background, and applies the Bible to our modern setting.
