A Message of Acts in the History of Redemption PBBy: Dennis Edward Johnson, Larry Johnson
|Publisher||Presbyterian and Reformed|
The Book of Acts is part of an unfolding drama, featuring the saving acts of God on the stage of history. There we see how the monumental redemptive events, actors and anticipations of ancient times find their fulfillment in the Redeemer Himself. Though not a commentary, this study will enrich readers' understanding and appreciation not only of Acts, but also of the whole Bible. Johnston underscores "the intricate connections by which God's word manifests its splendid unity and variety, always pointing us to the Lord Jesus." In this book the reader will learn of the character of early evangelism, the flavour of believers' life together and the expansion of the church across ethic, cultural and geographic boundaries - salvation to the ends of the earth.
