A scholar of the New Testament Church and a forerunner of modern Church renewal, Frank Viola casts his gaze back at the birth pangs of first-century Christianity in The Untold Story of the New Testament Church. Using a "you-are-there" approach, this epic volume gives listeners a first-hand account of how the witness of Christ's testimony impacted the world. In the era right after the Day of Pentecost, the power of the Holy Spirit prompted a massive harvest of souls, yet a great persecution surged against those preaching Good News to the lost. Now, get up-close with apostles Paul, Peter and John and learn of their personal struggles to fight for the faith amidst a backdrop of in-house strife and foreign tyranny.

Like listening to someone tell you a story
Most of the time when I listen to audio book, I feel like someone is reading a book to me. But listening to this was like listening to someone tell me a story. The story was a chronological history of the Christian Church during the first century of it's existance. Of course Acts was like a backbone, but events and discussion for the other NT books fleshed out the story.
There were no big suprises for me.
He was a good story teller.
Not particularly, but I did listen to this while driving on an eight hour trip.
I will share this with others.
