Still a Place for Church 18 May 2006
By Craig W. Beard - Published on
Format: Paperback
With the presence of the "emerging church," it seems as though some are emerging *from* the church. They are disappointed, dissatisfied, and disillusioned with the church, so they don't want to be part of anything called "church." That may mean being part of a Christian fellowship that doesn't call itself a "church," or it could mean not being a member of any organized Christian community. What Robinson and Wall offer is a way for the contemporary church, following the lead of the early church as pictured in the Acts of the Apostles, to emerge into and engage with the twenty-first century. Each chapter looks at a passage from Acts in two parts: Wall's interpretation of the text as scripture and Robinson's engagement with the text as it bears on the life of the contemporary church. From this conversation emerges a call for us to be the church.

Fresh and Relevant 8 Aug. 2006
By Linda Adams - Published on
Format: Paperback
I'm preaching through Acts this summer; this book has been a great help! The context of Acts in the bigger picture of Scripture, the narrative flow of Acts itself, ideas for "so what?" in our world...this volume has helped me more than my other commentaries combined.

Why Acts Matters 6 Sept. 2012
By Morgan J. Murray - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The opening chapter, "Why Acts? Why Now?" should be read and absorbed by every American Christian struggling to make sense of the church's relationship to culture in the 21st century. In a few pages the authors explain "American Christendom" and, in a wonderful way, why its demise is cause for real hope. Acts is relevant again, and in it the church can rediscover its relevance as an authentic witness to the resurrection of Jesus Christ and his Kingdom. The partnership between Robinson and Wall provides a great balance of exegetical depth and pastoral practicality. Great for preaching preparation, and very accessible for lay readers.
