The book of Acts chronicles the birth and growth of the early church. It tells the story of ordinary people who were pioneers for Christ, as they experienced His transforming power in their lives and communities. And while some miracles are unique to the early church, God’s power is still available to His people today; a truth that can inspire us to boldly pursue His plans and purposes. The study explores the power of God’s Spirit, and how that power can impact our lives today.
The Wiersbe Bible Studies Series explores timeless wisdom found in God’s word. Based on Dr. Warren W. Wiersbe’s popular “BE” series, each study provides topical, relevant insights from selected books of the Bible. Designed for small groups, this eight-week study features selected commentaries from BE Dynamic, engaging questions, and practical applications, all designed to help you connect God’s word with your life.
