Details on each volume:
ACTS 1 Overview
But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth. (Acts 1:8)
Acts chapter one lays the foundation for the entire book of Acts. Through Luke’s introduction, the ascension, and the first business meeting of the early church, you will discover that Jesus, through His Spirit, is the great need of our lives. Jesus would never have been victorious in redeeming a world through the cross, nor would the disciples have experienced revival throughout the world, without the indwelling Holy Spirit. This is our only chance as well. Our family, our personal victory, and our evangelism are all dependent upon one factor—the infilling and sourcing of God’s Spirit! This expositional commentary will lead you from the start of the early church to the preparations for Pentecost.

ACTS 2 Overview
Chapter one of the Book of Acts is the lighting of the fuse. Chapter two of the Book of Acts is the explosion. Chapter three and following of the Book of Acts are the rippling effects. Luke begins with the preparation of those who are to be source; he continues with the production of the sourcing; he concludes with the product of a sourced life. He examines; he experiences; he expands. It all revolves around Acts chapter two!

ACTS 3 Overview
Acts chapter three transitions from what happened at Pentecost with the outpouring of the Holy Spirit, to the early Church engaged in aggressive evangelism. Explore the formative years of the Church as it grows from a small localized cluster to a worldwide movement of believers.
You will discover through this expositional commentary on Acts 3 that from the lame man’s miracle to Peter’s message, Jesus was the focal point of the early church and now must be in your life. Nothing should distract you from intimacy with Him. Do not let the good or the bad, the institution or the organization, the theology or the program, the ceremony or the rules, or the emotions or the mind become a substitute for Him. Don’t let anything or anyone distract you from Jesus. Come back to Him. You must be intimate with Jesus!
