For Christians walking the path to understanding God's message, studying Biblical history and delving deeply into the meaning of Biblical texts are activities that are necessary for revelation. In "Acts: People, Places, and Events," author Dennis D. Weiss offers such study in an exploration of how and why Luke wrote the book of Acts. The Acts of the Apostles is the foundational New Testament narrative of how God, through Peter and Paul, chose to spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ throughout the known world.
"Acts" is the perfect accompaniment for reading and discussing the Bible. Weiss begins his in-depth study with an overview of the history behind the book of Acts, and the study guide and chapter highlights offer a useful format for organizing Bible studies. Completely discussion-oriented, "Acts" then moves on to cover the important people and places in each chapter of the book of Acts. A full, annotated glossary and atlas end the book, giving context to the whole experience.
Knowing the people, places, and events in the book of Acts contributes to an understanding of Christianity, God's message, and how it was spread. This knowledge is necessary for the exploration of the history and meaning of evangelism and provides a foundation for future studies.
