  • The Book of Acts from a Layperson’s Perspective: Commentaries for Small-Group or Individual Study

    Discover how 2,000 years ago sworn enemies came together to find God in a new way.

    Why another commentary on the book of Acts when there are so many out there already?

    As a verse-by-verse compilation of commentaries and personal impressions of St. Luke’s writings in the Holy Bible’s book of Acts, The Book of Acts from a Layperson’s Perspective is written for laypeople from a layperson’s point of view; it is not a scholarly dissertation requiring a PhD in order to comprehend it.

    The Book of Acts from a Layperson’s Perspective offers a simplicity in its presentation without being simple, providing curious readers the opportunity to appreciate Acts as an early-Christian history book as they discover the episodes and events surrounding Paul, Peter, and other believers, whether in a small-group Bible study or individually.
