T. Davis Bunn and Janette Oke do a wonderful job in presenting the Acts' setting. Readers who are familiar with the history around this time will find this story a treasure. The imagination of the reader will be engaged, and the plot will keep the readers attention. Characters like Peter and the other apostles will be introduced along the way. This is a great read.

the most inspirational book i have ever read.

for a new christian it may be difficult grasping certain character stereotypes; however, the characters manifest themselves in very thorough ways to help the reader understand the events.

i checked the Bible on many plot points when i wasn't sure if the authors were accurate or not, and in every case i checked, the authors were accurate and sometimes offered interesting thoughtsand new considerations to abound in a reader's mind when faces were added to anonymous characters in Acts. These references were all interesting because there was credibility to the characters.

An amazing read and I think that all readers would love the accuracy and imagination in the novel.

This is the crucifixion and resurrection from a Roman's point of view. Very captivating - I couldn't put it down! One of those books that you are sad is over.
