A.D.: The Bible Continues–The Book of Acts
By Dr. David Jeremiah / Tyndale House
Explore the biblical roots of the powerful story portrayed in the A.D. television series! Guiding you through the Book of Acts, best-selling author and Bible teacher Jeremiah reveals what motivated Jesus’ small band of followers to fearlessly spread his message—and how the fledgling church grew into an international movement after Christ’s death and resurrection.

A.D. The Bible Continues: The Book of Acts takes the reader through a fresh look at the book of Acts, with greater detail and understanding. It starts out with an introduction to the apostles, the events at that time, and the book of Acts. The introduction is then followed by the Prologue, which talks about the crucifixion of Jesus and His resurrection. The Prologue also includes a character profile of Mary Magdalene and an in depth look at the crucifixion. After the prologue there is an easy-to-understand version of the book of Acts, with character profiles of Luke, Stephen, Paul, Herod Agrippa I, Barnabas, Timothy, Priscilla and Aquila, Herod Agrippa II, and others. The book of Acts is closely followed by the epilogue, with a history of the church and a look at the second coming of Jesus. Then there is a call to action, describing what we are to do. Also within this book are photos from the TV series, favorite verses, and maps.
I discovered some facts while reading A.D. The Bible Continues: The Book of Acts, which I was not aware of before my reading. It was also interesting to see the book of Acts written from a different point of view in summary form. It makes me want to read the book of Acts all over again. I also enjoyed the favorite verses, towards the end of the book.
I highly recommend A.D. The Bible Continues: The Book of Acts
