Item description for Acts: A Guide for Reflection and Prayer (Daily Bible Commentary) by Loveday Alexander...
Overview Luke the Evangelist wrote the Acts of the Apostles and the Gospel according to Luke, which together account for nearly one quarter of the New Testament. In Acts of the Apostles Luke tells a story of journeys. Weaving accounts of perilous travel across vast distances with snapshots of internal faith journeys, Luke chronicles the growth of the Christian church from a humble room in Jerusalem to the far corners of the Mediterranean world. Throughout this story appear a host of individual travelers, apostles, and others, moving back and forth across the Roman Empire and spreading the gospel wherever they go. As we read, we share with the first Christians the unfolding excitement of finding that God is waiting to meet them and surprise them in this world he has called them to change.
Publishers Description The Daily Bible Commentary is systematic and rich in research, yet devotional and reflective in tone. It is perfect for preachers, lay people, teachers, ministers in training, students? and anyone who wants to understand the Bible better and draw closer to God on a daily basis. This is the volume on Acts.
