Randal Denny began a devotional study in the Book of Acts with 'Do It Again, Lord (Acts 1-4)' and 'Where the Action Is (Acts 5-8)' and continued it with this volume. Acts 9-12 is about God's wind of the Spirit moving through the rigging of Old Ship Zion . . . no more coasting along narrow shorelines of Judaism. Paul, Public Enemy No. 1, is struck down by Jesus, acknowledges His Lordship, and moves into place for action. Interwoven with his preparation for service are the lives of other key people whom God used to make St. Paul's ministry both possible and effective--Brave Ananias, Flexible Peter, Warmhearted Barnabas, and others. This book is filled with rich background material, strong illustrations, and pointed applications to make Acts come alive in your life today 'Wind in the Rigging' is pure music--the sweet sound of power, of progress, of joy . . . The sailboat comes alive Randal Earl Denny is the late pastor of Spokane Valley Church of the Nazarene in Spokane, Washington. He was Editor of Preacher's Magazine as well as a prolific writer of hundreds of articles and numerous books, including 'Alive and Well', 'In the Shadow of the Cross', and 'Growing Into Your Crown.'
