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. 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.
