In his study of Acts, Howard Brown shows how the power that God unleashed at Pentecost is still at work in God’s people today, changing people and the world from the inside out.

The book of Acts traces the birth of the early church from its small, inauspicious beginnings to Paul’s arrival in Rome. As Jesus predicted, the kingdom of God started small, but the power of God is still transforming and changing broken people and places. Jesus is still with us, still at work, writing a new history that moves the lives of people in every place to bring heaven to earth until that last great day when he returns.

Through a study of the story of the early church, Acts: The Power that Changes the World will encourage, challenge, and empower readers to live out God’s story in their lives and in their world.

  • Features twelve lessons from Acts, including leader’s notes. 
  • Easy-to-use small group resource includes discussion questions, a short article, and a practical application section that can be used for one-to-one discipleship, small group, or large group settings.
  • Part of the Gospel-Centered Life in the Bible series, examining how the gospel story is revealed through both the Old and New Testaments, published in partnership with Serge.
