Product Description
The Acts of the Apostles is a unique and crucial book that chronicles the story of God’s grace flooding out to the world through the lives of the apostles in the decades immediately following Christ’s ascension into heaven.


In Acts: Catching up with the Spirit, author and biblical scholar Matthew Skinner provides a broad yet theologically attuned introduction to this important book and its story of the early church learning to bear witness about God’s salvation through Jesus Christ..


Skinner explores six key themes that illustrate the ways in which reading Acts is capable of igniting our imagination about the character of the Christian message, the work of God’s people (the church), and the challenges of living faithfully in a complex and changing world.


Additional components for a six-week study include a DVD featuring Matthew Skinner and a comprehensive Leader Guide.


Endorsements for Acts: Catching Up with the Spirit

Skinner calls us to a daring life, risking not so much mere stormy seas, snakebites, magicians, but real daring, risking following the Holy Spirit into deep (even sacrificial) care of our neighbor at both the personal and social systemic levels, transformative hospitality, expansive inclusion, and, in Skinner’s words, “generous unity.”
—Jaime Clark-Soles, Professor of New Testament, Perkins School of Theology


Matt Skinner’s invitation is to notice how God has acted before in Acts so that we might together wonder anew where God is leading us today. On this necessary but difficult journey, Skinner is a consummate scholar, a vivid writer, a gifted theologian, and a loving guide.
— Eric D. Barreto, Weyerhaeuser Associate Professor of New Testament, Princeton Theological Seminary
