Publisher's Summary

Acts is Luke’s sequel to his Gospel. Like his Gospel, Acts is addressed to a particular man, Theophilus, and it tells the story of the birth of the Church. After Jesus’ death, burial, and resurrection, he ascends into heaven to sit at the right hand of the Father. Ten days later, the Holy Spirit arrives in Jerusalem on the Jewish feast of Pentecost, and the Church is born. Acts follows the Church from its birth in Jerusalem through its exponential growth and inevitable persecution, led by Saul of Tarsus.
Incredibly, Saul later confronts the risen and glorified Christ on the road to Damascus, where he becomes a believer. And not just any old believer! Saul becomes Paul, the great Apostle to the Gentiles. From Chapter 9 onward, Acts follows Paul on his three missionary journeys as he takes the Gospel into Asia Minor and Europe. In the end, Paul evangelizes all of Asia Minor, a good chunk of Europe, and he writes 13 of the 27 books of the New Testament. This is an incredible story, and no one tells it better than Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy.

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.
Dr. Creasy discusses Acts in depth, putting it in context as a continuation of the Gospel of Luke, why Luke was writing it and what audience he was writing for. He talks about the importance of this book historically and spiritually as it accounts the early Christian church and the Apostles who spread it.

Stellar presentation of an important book

Once again Dr. Creasy has enhanced my understanding of a familiar book through scholarly use of geopolitical and historic context. Although I have studied Acts in the past, this time around I learned more about Paul and his companions than ever before and as a result, for me they are now real and not just paper personalities. As always, I appeciate his clear presentation liberally flavored with good humor. Anyone looking for a Bible study that they can relate to needs to look into this series.
