Description

Anyone who reads one of the four Gospels is bound to ask the question - What happened next? With Jesus Christ crucified, resurrected and ascended into Heaven we are left with a few men who not so long before scattered to the wind at the first sign of trouble. How did these men, with the help of the Holy Spirit, establish Christ's Church and begin spreading the Gospel? The book of Acts tells this story and this book will be a helpful introduction, giving you a good start in understanding the message it contains. Designed to accompany the more extensive Teaching Acts also by David Cook, this short book will not take long to read, but will be a great help to all those seeking to better understand the book of Acts.

Reviews

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
