Told by Luke the physician, acting as historian, this is the gripping and vital history of the early Christian church. Drawing upon the incredible first-hand sources at his disposal, he provides us with vivid glimpses of the great moments in those first years after Christ's death. "The Acts of the Apostles" commends Christianity to the world, for all people of ever country. William Barclay's commentary uncovers the richness of this important book of the New Testament, showing how the characters and events relate to our lives today. In his well-informed, enthusiastic style, he shows us how, in the space of just thirty years, Christianity spread from a small corner of Palestine to the very heart of Rome.
William Barclay (1907-1978) is known and loved by millions worldwide as one of the greatest Christian teachers of modern times.
