Acts: A Study in New Testament Christianity



John Heading



5 3/8″ x 7 5/8″

There are many commentaries, expositions and theological works on the book of the Acts, and it may legitimately be asked why another should now be written. The answer lies in the deep belief of the author that the subject matter of the book of the Acts is just as relevant today as in the days of the apostles.

In particular, it has been the intention of the author not only to trace the development of the church, but also to separate out the transient features that characterized the transitional period between Judaism and Christianity. Moreover, he has sought to stress the abiding principles governing the local churches and their collective service, as well as the service of individual believers.

The connection of the Acts with the Old Testament, the Gospels and the Epistles is fully brought out. Christians may use the book for their own private study and meditation, the preparation of sermons, for Bible readings, and for the teaching of young converts. The Risen Lord, the Head of the Church, will give light to those who are thus exercised.
