Product Description

Product Description

The Book of Acts, John Stott believes, is important not only for its vivid historical record. It is also vital for the inspiration which it brings to us now. Today's church can seek to recapture something of the early confidence, enthusiasm, vision and power of the church of the first century. Despite all its imperfections and troubles, the young church clearly had been overwhelmed by the Holy Spirit, who thrust it out to witness.

The experiences of the early church therefore have much to say about issues that concern Christians today. What can Acts tell us about extraordinary manifestations of the Spirit? How should churches structure themselves - with elders, deacons, pastors or all three? And, of course, how should the church reach out into a lost world, with the glorious message of salvation?

As John Stott concludes: 'The Acts of the Apostles have long ago finished: the acts of the followers of Jesus will continue until the end of the world.'

From the Publisher

John Stott encourages today's church to recapture something of
the early confidence, enthusiasm, vision and power seen in Acts.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not good for the non academic - like me! 22 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have to say that I have been a fan of John Stott for many years but this commentary turned out to be too heavy for me. It seems old fashioned in its approach and not particularly relevant to the culture of today. I needed a commentary on Acts to use when leading a small house group attached to a very new church. My idea was to see how the early church behaved and what caused that church to grow exponentially from the outset. In short I needed many practical tips and advice.
I have no doubt that somewhere in John Stott's commentary I could have found what I was looking for, but certainly it was not easily accessible. Maybe I was put off by the use of a very old fashioned font, I don't know. The cover of the book is very attractive and inviting, but the appearance and nature of the content is not.
I returned the book for a full refund.
