This Bible study is a wonderful tool to dig deeper into the book of Acts and to learn how to study the Bible. It is well researched, well organized, well planned, and extremely well written. The author, Marta E Greenman, has divided the study into eight chapters with five study days each. Opening her book with Bible Study Tips she gives readers a head start on studying their bible.
Each chapter begins with an overview of the week’s biblical truths. There is an application to help better understand it. Throughout the chapters are additional helps such as charts, lists, and diagrams to assist in learning and retaining the information.
The author uses Peter and John as examples of how to stand firm for Christ in spite of persecution. She also uses stories of well known historical figures, such as William Bradford, Martin Luther, William Tyndal, as well as U.S. Revolutionary War heroes and early leaders of our nation, to illustrate how to apply biblical truths in life.
I enjoyed this study and picked up a lot of information from the author’s perspective. It is easy to read and understand. This would make a great study too for any library. Churches libraries would benefit from keeping a copy on hand.
I recommend this to anyone wanting to expand or deepen their knowledge of the Bible. It would make a nice present for any scholar. I rated it a 4 out of stars. A copy was provided by Celebrate Lit but these are my honest thoughts.
