There are many things which Jesus did. If each one of them were written down, I suppose that the whole world could not hold the books which could be written. (Jn 21:25 The Great Book)
Exciting and rich in hope and relevance, this you-are-there narration provides deep insight and understanding of the times in which the Acts of the Apostles and the General Epistles were written. You will also get personal glimpses into the personalities of the authors, discovering that they are not unlike us!
In this sixth book in the series "Praying the Scriptures," author Dr. Elmer Towns exposes the relevance of Acts, Hebrews, James, the two Books of Peter, the three Books of John, and Jude for today's living and learning.
The unique aspects these books of the Bible are vividly presented through contemporary illustrations and poignant prayers. The stories about why Luke, James, Peter, John, and Jude wrote their letters, set dramatic scenes and characterizations that prepare you for the interpreted chapters that follow.
As with his previous books, Praying the Acts is written in poetic style, combining modern-day language with a lyrical twist.
