Book Description

21 Oct 2010 For Everyone Bible Study Guide
The mysterious presence of Jesus haunts the whole story of Acts. Jesus is announced as King and Lord, not as an increasingly distant memory but as a living and powerful reality, a person who can be known and loved, obeyed and followed, a person who continues to act within the real world. We call the book "The Acts of the Apostles" but we should think of it as "The Acts of Jesus: Part Two" These studies help us to do so, and to see how Jesus' acts through the apostles inform and empower our acts today. The guides in this series by Tom Wright can be used on their own or alongside his New Testament for Everyone commentaries. They are designed to help you understand the Bible in fresh ways under the guidance of one of the world's leading New Testament scholars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful Bible study guide 6 Oct 2011
By Helen Hancox TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
I like the design of these small Bible Study guides which look through books of the Bible with questions which are often thought-provoking. The Acts version was no different, with some helpful introductory material, guideline notes in each study and a range of discussion questions.

I did feel, whilst reading it, that having Wright's New Testament For Everyone commentary as well might be useful to explain some things further.

Wright is good at not injecting too much of his own theology into the questions (not so many `leading questions' as one can find in other studies) and of giving questions that relate the study to the modern day as well as to its historical context.

2.0 out of 5 stars trite and shallow 30 Jun 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
mistaken (calls Aratus an Athenian).
racist (calls Herod the Great "a half-breed").
snobbish (calls Governor Felix " a jumped-up slave").
inaccurate (uses his own translation (eg: translates "kyrios" (lord) as "king").
ignorant (calls the Roman Empire "the known world" - despite all the merchants travelling the Silk Road to and from China.
