In this authorized tie-in to the NBC television mini-series, Evangelical pastor, David Jeremiah, presents, in his own words, an easy-to-follow narrative of the first eleven chapters of the Book of Acts. Jeremiah provides insightful background and offers valuable applications for believers in the twenty-first century.
Unfortunately, as with the other A.D. tie-in aimed at Evangelicals, “A.D. The Bible Continues: The Book of Acts: The Incredible Story of the First Followers of Jesus, according to the Bible,” Jeremiah often lapses into praising men rather than God by referring to certain apostles and deacons as “great” and “finest,” etc. Don’t you just cringe when pastors and other Christian leaders appeal to fleshly pride? All glory to God!. I would easily recommend this book, “The Revolution That Changed The World,” over “The Book of Acts” package. After reading both it’s clear “The Book of Acts” was intended more for seekers and new believers while “The Revolution That Changed The World” is geared more to the “seasoned” believer but that distinction won’t be readily apparent to the shopper or library patron.
I’m enjoying most of the A.D. mini-series (produced by) Roma Downey, and her husband, Mark Burnett) and I enjoyed both Jeremiah books (two authorized Catholic-oriented tie-in books have also been published) but Christians must be discerning. My Lord and Savior, Jesus the Christ, died on the cross to pay for ALL of my sins and provided the ONLY way to the Father through faith in Him. No one can possibly merit their way to Heaven as the Roman Catholic church teaches. “I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!” – Gal. 2:21. Praise the Lord my God.
I received this book from the publisher for an honest review.
