Description

Acts is the story of the birth of the church and the beginnings of its journey around the world. The author, Luke, traces this journey from an upstairs room in Jerusalem through the travels of a host of individual disciples across the Mediterranean world, spreading the gospel wherever they go.

It is also the story of the journey of faith - one of Luke's favourite metaphors for discipleship is 'the Way'. As we read, we share the excitement of those first Christians in finding that God is 'out there', waiting to meet and surprise them in the world.
