Many Christians today feel as if their lives are a losing cause. There is no confidence or hope. There is simply a feeling of defeat that leads to sinful ineffectiveness. In the fifth volume in his series on Acts, Martyn Lloyd-Jones demonstrates that without the miraculous, supernatural power of the Holy Spirit, there can be no triumph in the Christian life. He examines the faulty attitude of Christians both in Stephen's day as well as ours from the perspective given in the book of Acts. Lloyd-Jones exposes the problematic spirit within Christians today and provides a strongly biblical response to the ever more prevalent unbelief we see around us. The relevance of the author's message has not been lost in the years since it was preached. Christians today need the power of the Holy Spirit to penetrate our lives and offer the same triumph exhibited in the life of Stephen thousands of years ago.

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER From the bestselling authority on early Christianity, the story of how Christianity grew from a religion of twenty or so peasants in rural Galilee to the dominant religion in the West in less than four hundred years. Christianity didn’t have to become the dominant religion in the West. It easily could have remained a sect of Judaism fated to have the historical importance of the Sadducees or the Essenes. In The Triumph of Christianity, Bart Ehrman, a master explainer of Christian history, texts, and traditions, shows how a religion whose first believers were twenty or so illiterate day laborers in a remote part of the empire became the official religion of Rome, converting some thirty million people in just four centuries. The Triumph of Christianity combines deep knowledge and meticulous research in an eye-opening, immensely readable narrative that upends the way we think about the single most important cultural transformation our world has ever seen—one that revolutionized art, music, literature, philosophy, ethics, economics, and law.

Acts 8 chronicles some of the historical heights and valleys of the early church. While believers mourn Stephen’s death and Saul seeks to ravage the church, the gospel message is spreading into regions beyond Jerusalem, and many are coming to faith in Christ. In the sixth and final volume of Studies in the book of Acts, Lloyd-Jones works from this essential truth, reminding us that there are compelling and vital reasons to consider Christianity even beyond the historical record. Exploring many issues that lie at the heart of the gospel, such as the empowering work of the Holy Spirit and the all-encompassing purpose of Christ’s death, Lloyd-Jones also speaks to the cultural deceptions that claim Christianity is nothing more than “a personal matter” or “just another teaching.” Keeping other world religions in view, this classic work offers penetrating perspective as to how the Christian church and faith differ from all others, making the message of this book a particularly poignant one in today’s pluralistic culture. The book of Acts records some of the most powerful events in the New Testament. The birth of the church. The coming of the Holy Spirit. Bold preaching and dramatic missionary journeys. Saved souls and transformed lives. It not only provides insight into the growth of the apostolic church, but can encourage and challenge your heart today. Martyn Lloyd-Jones preached on the first eight chapters of this dynamic Bible book during the peak of his ministry. Now those expository sermons are gathered together in a six-volume collection. His language is simple and clear so that the truth of the Scriptures would be available to all who desire to understand. Recognized as one of the twentieth century’s most gifted preachers, he is known for his astute analysis of man’s condition and his persuasive proclamation of the gospel as the only true solution.

This volume on Luke-Acts as with all titles in the [email protected] Series highlights readings that make explicit the diverse contemporary contexts of biblical interpreters. The global spread of contributors includes scholarly voices from South Africa, South America and Hong Kong, as well as from the United States. The chapters are organized around four themes. The first examines interpretations of Jesus, looking at his childhood, contemporary context, and his teaching – including whether Jesus' sympathetic response to disease and pain might be used to advocate euthanasia. The second examines social categories: gender, race, and class, including a political and racialized reading of the history of diasporic Black America as a model for reading Acts as a diasporic history. The third examines issues of empire and resistance. The final part looks at society and spirituality, with a focus on modern contemporary contexts.
