Falling in Love with Jesus’ People: Studies in the Book of Acts


College Press 1998

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


What problems faced the first church? What did they believe? How did they act? What did they hold dear? These are the questions most on the minds of those who read the book of Acts. But did you know that the church also faced embezzlement, treachery, murder, demonic attacks, world uncertainty, theological questions, and persecution? Sound familiar? Although 2,000 years have come and gone, we still struggle against the same foe, still fight the good fight, still deal with the same issues. This study deals with the church and her people in a setting that is as familiar today as it was when the church chartered her first member. As you chart your course through the book of Acts, Rubel will introduce you to the men and women who defied an empire, crushed the bastions of hell, and stood up for Jesus. In the end, you will come to know and love Jesus’ people.
