This book is a commentary on the Acts of the Apostles for the nonspecialist, based on lecture notes accumulated over many years of Professor Mel Storm's introductory course on Acts. Originally written to supplement students' reading of the story of the church in Acts, Living Lord, Empowering Spirit, Testifying People provides readers with important historical information and theological insights. The book opens with an introduction to Acts that gives special attention to the question of the authorship and date of the book, as well as to the theological themes that shape the narrative. Storm offers large sections of in-depth commentary instead of verse-by-verse analysis and concludes each chapter with important vocabulary and insightful questions that can be used as a springboard for class discussion, small writing assignments, or personal reflection in both academic circles and church settings. Living Lord, Empowering Spirit, Testifying People guides students to understand Acts as a theologically shaped narrative that conveys important themes for disciples of Jesus.
