BIB1053 Acts

Acts deals with the continuing ministry of the resurrected Christ in the world through the Holy Spirit. The author analyzes and examines questions concerning the growth of the church, both historical and contemporary. Using the principles of divine guidance illustrated in Acts, the course shows how apparent defeats and setbacks actually became victories and advances for the gospel. The Study Guide suggests practical applications to help the student face similar problems today. (BIB3073 The Book of Acts parallels this course. Students may enroll in either course, but not both.)
