Conversations with Scripture
Number of pages: 114
As Luke’s “sequel,” the Acts of the Apostles serves as an ideal bridge between the four Gospels and the Epistles, revealing a crucial part of the Christian story. Here we follow the story of Jesus’ earliest followers from their call to be his witnesses “to the ends of the earth,” through their initial days of concord and numerical success, to the challenges they faced as unfamiliar newcomers entered the scene. We discover the leadership changes that resulted from these challenges, explore a council’s response to the struggles, and meet the champion who, against the odds, became the Church’s chief protagonist. Author C. K. Robertson presents a well-researched, yet highly readable exploration of the Acts of the Apostles.
Sponsored by the Anglican Association of Biblical Scholars, the Conversations with Scripture
series was created just for Episcopalians. Each book is designed for people in the pews eager to learn more about Scripture—and how it applies to their lives today.
