Acts – Verse by Verse
The events in the book of Acts changed our world forever.
Following his account of Jesus’ life and ministry in his Gospel, Luke recounts the formation of the early church in Acts. And while the apostles appear to be at the center of this narrative, all of their work is done through the presence and guidance of the Holy Spirit. In every chapter in Acts, we see Spirit-empowered apostles sharing the gospel reality of the risen Christ to the ends of the earth.
In Acts Verse by Verse, Grant Osborne guides readers through these crucial events in history. He shows us that by sending his Holy Spirit, the risen and exalted Lord was acting through the apostles—and through us today—to transform human history. Osborne skillfully explains the significance of these events and shows us how we can draw inspiration from them today.
