Item description for Authentic Christianity (Lloyd-Jones, David Martyn. Studies in the Book of Acts, V. 1.) by Martyn Lloyd-Jones...
Overview Bold preaching, saved souls, dramatic missionary journeys, the coming of the Holy Spirit---the Book of Acts is bursting with powerful, history-changing events. Now in the first book of this new series, one of the 20th century's greatest preachers offers a verse-by-verse exposition of Acts 1--3 that will encourage, challenge, and strengthen you in your faith.
"There can be no more urgent question at this present time than just this: What is Christianity?"
Some define it as an elevated, optimistic philosophy of life. Many regard it as a set of morals to live by, or a good feeling about yourself, or doing good things. Still others dismiss it as something for the intellectually weak.
Within these pages, however, Martyn Lloyd-Jones challenges you to think through exactly what you believe Christianity to be and the role it has in your life. He believes that today's understanding of Christianity, even as defined by many who consider themselves to be its followers, is in complete contrast to what is taught in the Bible. Christianity is not a list of things for you to do, but rather, your only true hope, for it tells what Jesus came to do for you.
That you may know Jesus as your Savior and know Him more fully is Lloyd-Jones's desire as he shares in these messages from the book of Acts the basic truths of genuine Christianity.About this Series

Finding the Real Christianity Jul 16, 2002
I have read many of Lloyd-Jones' works and they seem to get better and better. As a Christian, I have come to see that the Church (me included) is robbing herself of experiencing the glories of the first-century Christian Church and no longer providing a pure shining light to a world lost in hopeless darkness. In addition to that, the Church seems to be so far away from what it originally was when she began. The chapters on "Singleness of Heart," "Gladness," and "Rise Up and Walk" are incredible! Martyn Lloyd-Jones opens our eyes to our need and invites us to find the original, untainted Christian Church thriving in power and love. If this is your hope, then do not hesitate to read this book!
Authentic Voice in a Crowded World Mar 27, 2000
As the world become crowded with opinions and alternative voices in almost all aspect of our life, I find this book very refreshing as He brings us back to the events among the 1st century Christians. Based on the book of Acts 1-3, the verse by verse exposition will definitely encourage and strengthen us in our search for real Christianity in the midst of a crowded world. Let Martyn Lloyd Jones speak to you personally and powerfully as you look for an authentic voice in a crowded world!
