A Study in the Book of Acts
Most thought He was dead and gone. A few knew He was alive and present, and those few “turned the world upside down.” (Acts 17:6 NRSV). The Acts of the Apostles might better be titled the Acts of Jesus through the Spirit. It is the story of how the Spirit, through ordinary men and women, spread the gospel to the ends of the earth. And as such, it becomes the blueprint for how the church today is to do the same.

Active Faith: Wholehearted Life in the Book of James
New Testament scholar and author Earl Palmer writes, “This is the book of plain talk in the New Testament and one of the best cures for religious, political and social straitjackets…James is an original…and he has written a book sure to offend everyone in some way.” James “offends” us in the best possible way, he makes us uncomfortable if our words of faith are not matched by works of faith. He does not allow more than a few words to pass, before he pauses as if to say – “Okay, if you say you understand this, show me how you will live in light of it.” It’s the kind of discomfort that produces experiential faith, which is the only faith that really matters. The only kind of faith that produces wholehearted life in us, and through us.Go to series page
