Acts and Facts

God’s Unstoppable Mission

In this stimulating study on the Acts of the Apostles, author Brian Johnston explores how the historian Luke narrates the true story of a small Jerusalem-based group that emerges from Judaism and morphs into a worldwide phenomenon that becomes mainly Gentile: to do this, he traces it all the way from Jerusalem to Rome and paints the story in 6 ‘panels’, each ending with a summary statement of the ongoing progress of God’s word (6:7; 9:31; 12:24; 16:5; 19:20). Discover how the main overarching message of the Acts is the progress of the gospel in the power of the Spirit – in which all manner of internal and external obstacles are overcome. The last word of this New Testament book is literally ‘unhindered,’ which brings us to a very inspiring crescendo indeed! Each of the 18 chapters is supplied with questions for individual or group study. (eBook, PDF)
