This is a good well-thought out study guide. The questions stimulate good explorations by the group

Really useful guide to Acts would recommend.

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.

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.

Bought this by mistake - meant to buy the commentary not the study guide. Never mind, it will come in useful I'm sure. Tom Wright is so good.
