My article on the spirituality of Acts, plus lots more on Acts!


The Baylor University journal Christian Reflection has just published its latest issue, in print and on the web here, focused on the Book of Acts. I was delighted to be asked to contribute an article on the spirituality of Acts, and it’s nice to see it in print.

There are other interesting and helpful articles too, by luminaries of Acts studies, plus some good discussion study guides for individual articles (click on links below for individual pieces—or you can download the whole issue here). It’s particularly nice for me to see the article by my former doctoral student Tim Churchill, now Dean of The Theological College of Central Africa, Ndola, Zambia. Enjoy!
