An incomplete and opinionated 'Commentary'
on 12 November 2011
A curates egg of a book. The overall impression it creates is of someone using the accounts of the early church in Acts to put across his strong opinions about how the Church of today should be going about its ministry. This would be better done in a book on that particular subject so that in the commentary he could let the stories in Acts speak for themselves. There are some parts of the book that do bring light to the passages. But, on the other hand, some verses aren't commented on at all. And, by sod's law, those verses were the very ones that I sought illumination of from the commentary!
The book is sub-titled '60 Bite Sized Insights' which indicates a better way to approach it. Not as a commentary, but as an interesting set of short thought-provoking essays to use as part of your regular Prayer & Study time.
