Details for Luke-Acts

Luke-Acts is the two-volume work which tracks the movement from the ministry of Jesus through to the early church (and beyond!). Obviously this text is therefore of great significance in the New Testament (even if just in regards to the size of the combined volumes), and has been used by Pentecostals for over a century in our quest for recovering a truly biblical faith. This unit examines the narrative of Luke-Acts in a way that holds together the historical and theological foci, and seeks to equip you with a solid reading strategy for approaching these remarkable texts.
