The Message of Acts
The Bible Speaks Today Series
Author: John Stott
The Spirit moves the church into the world. That is how it has always been since the day of Pentecost when the Spirit brought thousands from many countries into the body of Christ. With the breadth and scholarly care that have marked John Stott’s years of ministry, this book opens to us the early days of the church as recorded by Luke in the book of Acts.
The experiences of the early church have much to say about issues that concern Christians today. What can Acts tell us about tongues and other extraordinary manifestations of the Spirit? How should churches structure themselves–with elders, deacons, pastors or all three? What should a normal Christian conversion look like? And, of course, how should the church reach out into the world with the message of salvation?
These and many other topics are handled with a pastoral heart and an unwavering commitment to the authority of God’s Word in our lives. As Stott concludes, “The Acts of the Apostles have long ago finished; the acts of the followers of Jesus will continue until the end of the world.”
