Summary

"Luke Volume II", often called "The Acts of the Apostles", completes the "Pentateuch of the New Testament". The traditional title of this book is, in some respects, a misnomer: It primarily deals with the "acts" of Peter and Paul. It really should be called "The Acts of the Holy Spirit".

This review will explore the continuing mysteries of Hag Shavuot in Acts 2; the surprises in the history lesson Stephen gives the Sanhedrin in Acts 7; the controversies dealt with in the Council of Jerusalem in Acts 15; the seamanship details which permitted the discovery of the anchors cut loose in Acts 27; as well as the adventures of Paul and his companions during his missionary journeys.

Good Bible Info, poor delivery

The author/ narrator is obviously quite knowledgeable about the Bible, but his delivery is difficient. He meanders quite a bit off subject, often sort of mumbles which makes it hard to understand at times and also, at times, he speeds up his delivery, blurring his words and making it again hard to understand. With some work on delivery this could be very good. Thanks

Excellent Study!

I learned many new things about the disciples and the apostle Paul. There are some familiar teachings, but the in depth background to the setting, Jewish religious beliefs, Biblical cross references, geography, and later archeological discoveries gives new light and meaning to beloved passages! Dr. Missler’s work and teaching have advanced my understanding and appreciation for the Bible by light years...

repetitive but informative

Chuck Missler is very knowledgeable and I wish he'd edited this series to be more dense on information and/or lighter on repetition.

Faithful, Fantastic Analysis

Helped me significantly with a better understanding of the Book of Acts. Really knowing and getting the way the Church started and the great challenges Peter, Paul and the rest of the early Christian leaders faced helps me to appreciate the wonderful things that I have in Jesus due to their faithfulness. I love the way the book works thingsout to get me to really read and investigate the results of the scriptures and come to my own conclusions with the full guidance and love of the Holy Spirit. I have listened to many of Dr Missler commentaries and they helped me so much. Thank you so much Dr. Chuck Missler.

Too Many Rabbit Trails for most of the book!

No anointing. Seemed like almost every comment had a side trail running so long the main point was forgotten.
