The book of Acts begins where the Gospels end. At the beginning, Acts depicts scenes of confusion, anticipation, and excitement. By the end of Acts, we have been witnessed the ministry of the apostles, and the Holy Spirit has propelled the church to the furthest reaches of the empire. In this way, Acts tells us about the earliest history of the church, and helps identifies ways in which the Spirit moves today.
John G. Butler’s new commentary on Acts makes the core themes of the book accessible in outline form. This detailed commentary unpacks the message and the meaning of Acts for today’s church.
John G. Butler originally from Iowa, has been a Baptist minister for over fifty years and a pastor for over thirty-five years with pastorates in Clinton, Iowa; Williamsburg, Ohio; Detroit, Michigan; and Chicago, Illinois.
