Acts (Everyday Bible Commentary Series) Review

Book Review: 

Acts, by Charles C. Ryrie is an in-depth bible study, and a part of the Everyday Bible Commentary series.

This book allows readers to encounter the biblical book of Acts in an easy-to-read manner and focus on an in-depth study with verse-by-verse commentary. Each chapter may be utilized during as a personal bible study, as well as a group study with friends or church bible studies.

This book is divided into eighteen chapters, which are titled as Backgrounds, The Risen Lord, Pentecost--Birthday of the Church, The Healing of a Lame Man, The Beginning of Persecution, Purity, Purging, and Persecution, Workers Together with God, The First Martyr, Enforced Expansion, The Conversion of Paul, Gentiles in the Church, The Church as Antioch, The Herodian Persecution, The First Missionary Journey, The Council at Jerusalem, The Second Missionary Journey, The Third Missionary Journey, and On to Rome. Also, there's an additional section titled as Publisher's Note.

According to the Publisher's Note, "For over sixty years, the Everyday Bible Commentary series (formerly titled as Everyman's Bible Commentary series) has served millions of readers, helping them to grow in their understanding, of both God and His Word. These commentaries--written by a host of evangelical scholars who are expects in their respective fields--provide biblical interpretation that is both accessible and rich, impacting the daily lives of Christians from diverse cultural and theological backgrounds.... While these commentaries are not new, they remain relevant as the content in each volume provides timeless scriptural exposition...[and] these commentaries were written: that believers may encounter God through His Word and embody it in their everyday lives."

Acts is a highly recommended in-depth bible study, and it's geared toward various ages, from young adults to older generations.

Note: I received this book from Moody Newsroom, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
