Acts: vital to the church in every generation
An exciting story of church growth
Gospel spread from Jerusalem to Rome and beyond
Published in conjunction with The Proclamation Trust.
There are commentaries, and there are books on preaching - but very few books that are specifically geared to the preacher or Bible teacher tackling a series on a Bible book or doctrinal theme. Key features of books in this series are introductory chapters on 'getting our bearings in the book' and 'planning a series'. The 'meat of the book' then works systematically through a suggested series, working with the Bible teacher from text to sermon or talk. Each chapter ends with a suggested preaching / teaching outline and a detailed Bible study which would be ideal for small groups.
Books in this series are aimed at developing confidence in handling God's Word in a variety of contexts. Whether you are a preacher, a small group leader or youth worker, these books will give you the necessary tools for teaching.
Teaching Acts is a welcome addition to the series. Acts is a tough book to teach, but vital to the church in every generation.

The task of moving from the text of Scripture to clear and faithful exposition is challenging. This series of excellent guides aims to help the Bible teacher to observe what is there in the text, and prepare to convey its significance to contemporary hearers. In this way these volumes often do more than the weightier technical commentaries. It is like having the guidance of an experienced coach in the wonderful work of rightly handling the word of truth.
John Woodhouse, Retired Principal and Lecturer in Doctrine and Old Testament, Moore College, Sydney, Australia
North India desperately needs men and women who will preach and teach the Bible faithfully and PT's Teaching series is of great value in encouraging them to do just that.
Isaac Shaw, Executive Director, Delhi Bible Institute, New Delhi, India
The need of the hour is Bible knowledge. When knowledge fails, faith fails, and we are shaped instead by cultural forces alien to God. This teaching series, written by skilled and trustworthy students of God's word, helps us to understand the Bible, believe it and obey it. I commend it to all Bible readers, but especially those whose task it is to teach the inspired word of God.
Peter Jensen, Retired Archbishop of Sydney, Sydney, Australia
The Teaching series is a great resource for Bible study leaders and pastors, indeed for any Christian who wants to understand their Bible better.
Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church and President, 9Marks.org, Washington, DC
"This is a fantastic resource for all Bible teachers and as a small group leader, I shall be investing in the other books in the series. This is a great investment!"
