Product Details

Dynamic churches—congregations that are experiencing phenomenal growth, Christian ministries that God is using to take down walls, churches where souls are being saved and lives transformed--inspire us and make for great reading. The book of Acts, the divinely inspired history of the early church, is all this and more"

In the author's words: "One reason I love to study the book of Acts is its uniqueness. It is the sourcebook for the spread of early Christianity. Without it we would know little about the apostolic church except what could be gleaned from Paul's epistles. It is the chronicle of the spreading flame of the Holy Spirit."

In this welcome addition to the Preaching the Word series, Pastor Kent Hughes provides fascinating commentary on the book of Acts:

  • The birth of the church
  • Bold gospel preaching that resulted in thousands being won to Christ
  • The transformation of the church's greatest enemy into her greatest spokesman
  • Expanded international witness due to persecution and in response to divine calling
  • Walls of racial and religious pride blown away
  • The dramatic missionary journeys of the Apostle Paul
  • The cost of discipleship and the rewards of faithfulness

This encouraging commentary on a marvelous Bible book is sure to challenge all Christian believers who seek to walk with Christ and to serve him more effectively through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Endorsements

This series will minister to a pastor's soul as well as give him an immense resource for his preaching. And it will minister to the parishioner wonderfully in personal Bible study. The reader will be filled with fresh thoughts about our Lord as well as joyful encouragement for himself. That is what happened to me in reading this.

Dr. Walter C. Kaiser, Jr, Academic Dean, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School
The Preaching the Word Commentary is one of my favorites. The focus upon explaining the text with preaching it as the goal makes the series resonate with the priorities of the pulpit. No academic aloofness here, but down-to-earth, preacher meat for God's people.
Bryan Chapell, President, Covenant Seminary, St. Louis, MO
The single best resource for faithful biblical exposition today. A great boon for genuine reformation!
Timothy George, Dean, Samford University, Beeson Divinity School
Throughout the Christian centuries, from Chrysostom and Augustine through Luther, Calvin, and Matthew Henry, to Martyn Lloyd-Jones and Ray Stedman, working pastors have been proving themselves to be the best of all Bible expositors. Kent Hughes stands in this great tradition, and his exciting expositions uphold it worthily.
