Item description for Called to Be Church: The Book of Acts for a New Day by Anthony B. Robinson & Robert W. Wall...

Description: Called to be Church seeks to introduce Acts to a congregation of faithful readers. It includes such topics as Christian community, the Holy Spirit and the life of the Church, the conversion of Saul to become the great missionary to the Gentiles, the Gospel to a multicultural church as particularly related to the ministry of Peter, the challenge of change, and a host of other topics that stem from the study of the book of Acts.

Publishers Description
What makes the authentic markers of the church? The biblical book of Acts not only insistently raises this question but also provides resources to help congregations answer it. In "Called to be Church," biblical scholar Rob Wall and pastoral leader Tony Robinson join together to make Acts available as a source of renewal and transformation for the Christian church today.

Featuring both careful exegetical study and exciting contemporary exposition, "Called to be Church" explores twelve familiar stories from Acts. In addressing these stories it dives into many of the most vexing issues faced by the church in Acts and now again in the twenty-first century -- issues of sexuality, money, exclusion, conflict in the church, pluralism, and the role of the Holy Spirit. Through it all Acts challenges the church to stay connected to its Jewish legacy and to be a people set apart.

"Called to be Church" will inspire those involved with the church to see themselves as part of God's story in our time.

Reviews - What do customers think about Called to Be Church: The Book of Acts for a New Day?

Fresh and Relevant  Aug 8, 2006
I'm preaching through Acts this summer; this book has been a great help! The context of Acts in the bigger picture of Scripture, the narrative flow of Acts itself, ideas for "so what?" in our world...this volume has helped me more than my other commentaries combined.
Still a Place for Church  May 18, 2006
With the presence of the "emerging church," it seems as though some are emerging *from* the church. They are disappointed, dissatisfied, and disillusioned with the church, so they don't want to be part of anything called "church." That may mean being part of a Christian fellowship that doesn't call itself a "church," or it could mean not being a member of any organized Christian community. What Robinson and Wall offer is a way for the contemporary church, following the lead of the early church as pictured in the Acts of the Apostles, to emerge into and engage with the twenty-first century. Each chapter looks at a passage from Acts in two parts: Wall's interpretation of the text as scripture and Robinson's engagement with the text as it bears on the life of the contemporary church. From this conversation emerges a call for us to be the church.
