Reviews - What do our customers think?
Acts of the Apostles as Narrative History   Jun 18, 2006
This is a self conciously Christian book. It is orthodox in interpretation and conclusions. It is probably aimed at readers with at least a passing acquaintance with the scriptures. However, it is of value to any lay reader looking for historical information on the early Christian community in Jerusalem. It also makes no great intellectual demands on its audience. It is certainly far simpler than reading the Acts yourself and then trying to construct a narrative history therefrom. It would make a fine Bible study accompaniment or a lesson book on the early Jerusalem Church.

All of that said, why should the general reader pick up and read this book? Assuming that such a reader has an interest in early Church history, this book represents the easiest way to approach the activities of the early Jerusalem believer community in its historical context. Whether you are a seasoned veteran of Early Church history or a newcomer to the topic, there is much to be gained here. The price you pay is low. The book is an easy read and flows along coherently. The more difficult questions are left to be dealt with elsewhere. However, here one finds a synthesis of information about this period that would be hard to find elsewhere, let alone, in such an accessible form. All in all, a must read for the informed reader and the novice alike.
