Item description for The Message of Acts: The Spirit, the Church, and the World (Bible Speaks Today) by John Stott...

Overview
The Spirit moves the church into the world. What can the book of Acts tell us about how the church should operate today? John Stott describes the Spirit-motivated, world-changing mission of the early church and applies its experiences to the modern issues that churches face every day.

Publishers Description
Replaces the book, The Spirit, the Church & the World, which received a Christianity Today 1991 Readers' Choice Award The Spirit moves the church into the world. That is how it has always been since the day of Pentecost when the Spirit brought thousands from many countries into the body of Christ. With the breadth and scholarly care that have marked John Stott's years of ministry, this book opens to us the early days of the church as recorded by Luke in the book of Acts. The experiences of the early church have much to say about issues that concern Christians today. What can Acts tell us about tongues and other extraordinary manifestations of the Spirit? How should churches structure themselves--with elders, deacons, pastors or all three? What should a normal Christian conversion look like? And, of course, how should the church reach out into the world with the message of salvation? These and many other topics are handled with a pastoral heart and an unwavering commitment to the authority of God's Word in our lives. As Stott concludes, "The Acts of the Apostles have long ago finished; the acts of the followers of Jesus will continue until the end of the world."

Reviews - What do customers think about The Message of Acts: The Spirit, the Church, and the World (Bible Speaks Today)?

Excellent Commentary  Jan 11, 2007
Even though John Stott doesn't consider this book and its companions as commentaries, they do the trick for laypersons. There are great explanations of scripture from a conservative theological point of view meaning the Bible is considered the inerrant word of God. He brings competing interpretations into the mix and then tells you his choice and why. Great for small group Bible study leaders for students studying on their own. Best if used with his Bible Study Guides. You can't go wrong with any of his studies or "commentaries."
 
Reliable Guide to Help You Understand Acts  Apr 21, 2003
John Stott is a thought-provoking writer with dozens of helpful titles in print, from books about his travels [People My Teachers: around the world in 80 years], books about his life-long habit of bird-watching [The Birds Our Teachers] to the many helpful books about Christian teaching, guides to the Bible and commentaries on specific books of the Bible.

His exposition of Acts has been a great help to us in our bible study group, as we are ploughing through Acts. He gives you several interpretations of controversial issues, but also lets you know his own thoughts. If you want a conservative, evangelical treatment of Luke's book about the Early Church, you will appreciate this book.

The study guide is helpful, but bear in mind that it is intended to be a guide to Stott's book, not to Acts itself. As we were not studying Stott's book, but Acts, we adapted the questions to suit ourselves, and did not find this too difficult to do.

Highly recommended. I am also finding Howard Marshall's Tyndale Commentary useful, as I prepare the studies for our group.

 
Good resource  Jan 12, 2002
This is a wonderful book to use as a resource. I got it yesterday and have had a hard time putting it down. I only wish it was hard cover. Why would anybody make a commentary a paperback book??
 
Another Stott classic for the lay Bible student  Mar 7, 2000
John Stott provides masterful exposition and commentary on the Acts. The Acts is an important book to master for any serious Bible reader; Stott's book may be the best one available for the lay student. Easy to read, non-technical, full of practical and insightful commentary. See my review of Stott's Romans commentary also. Complete the Study Guide at the back of the book and you will come away with a deep practical knowledge of Acts.
 
Clearly written, concise, logical, thorough scholarship  Sep 7, 1999
I couldn't bring myself to study Acts because it seemed so long, dry and boring. Boy, how Stott brings Acts to life! What an adventure. What a treasure of great thought. Dynamic principles and deep truths. Stott deftly handles the difficult passages with grace and integrity. This book will change the way you think and live!
