The Joy of Unit-Reading #60 (the Book of Acts)

07 Jul

What an amazing book the book of Acts is! We are continuing our unit-reading of all the books of the Bible (with the exception of the book of the Psalms). There is so much here! I deeply miss my colleague and friend, Dr. William Larkin, who was an expert on the book of Acts.

A couple of takeaways for me:
1. There is much in the book of Acts about the Holy Spirit.
2. Salvation is described in a variety of ways in this book: being set free from every sin; being appointed to eternal life; those who by grace had believed.
3. God’s sovereignty and man’s responsibility are held in tension throughout this book.
