Intrusive God, Disruptive Gospel: Encountering the Divine in the Book of Acts

Matthew L Skinner

Intrusive God, Disruptive Gospel: Encountering the Divine in the Book of Acts

Matthew L Skinner

$33.99

Paperback
:This engaging book guides readers through one of the most colorful books of the Bible, illuminating passages from Acts that show the Christian gospel expressing itself through the lives, speech, struggles, and adventures of Jesus's followers. The book emphasizes the disruptive character of the Christian gospel and shows how Acts repeatedly describes God as upsetting the status quo by changing people's lives, society's conventions, and our basic expectations of what's possible. Suited for individual and group study, this book by a New Testament scholar with a gift for popular communication asks serious questions and eschews pat answers, bringing Acts alive for contemporary reflection on the character of God, the challenges of faith, and the church.
