WrensReads Review:Sidenote: The reason for such vague and short and "eh" words on each of these books, is because I wasn't challenging the study of the Bible when I read these. I was challenging myself to read the whole Bible in a year because I knew it would be discipline to keep at it daily. I do, however, plan to pick up a book and study what it is saying. Those will be longer reads and more notes.So here is my review from my "Read the Bible in a Year" challenge. Usually just snippets of thou [...]

by Andrea Renee CoxThe book of Acts never fails to inspire me. Such passion for the Way is encouraging. This is a book I come back to again and again because I often need the encouragement that if Paul can be used in great and fantastic ways for God's purposes, then so can I. This is a must-read, y'all. Have you read it yet?
I found this work of immense interest and importance.The compilation of historical accounts, wisdom & proverbial insights, and thought provoking texts, along with descriptive and informative footnotes, are of great value.Explanations, including varying scholarly views depicting the material related in this book, are available for each of the 66 individual books of the Bible.This book is but one of the individual 66 books/letters which were written by forty different authors over at least 150 [...]
I don't think that in my Christian walk I have ever read Acts all the way through. So I can now truly say I love this book! Definitely one for my favourite bible book list. I may be a little bias though because Paul is one of my favourite bible characters. I just love reading his passion and uncompromising stand for God :). Acts is a must read!
Acts the Apostles. A Pastor once said that this should be called Acts of the Holy Spirit. It gave the account of Jesus' appearance to His disciples instructing them to tarry/wait for the Holy Spirit. They received the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues. The change in them was quite evident. The boldness of Peter when he spoke, the same Peter who denied Christ because he was afraid. Peter transformed into one who spoke the gospel of Jesus boldly, he was not afraid of being beate [...]
WORDS FROM THE BOOK OF ACTS:In my first book* I told you, Theophilus, about everything Jesus began to do and teach until the day he was taken up to heaven after giving his chosen apostles further instructions through the Holy Spirit. During the forty days after his crucifixion, he appeared to the apostles from time to time, and he proved to them in many ways that he was actually alive. And he talked to them about the Kingdom of God. Once when he was eating with them, he commanded them, “Do not [...]
Acts is a great example of how people could distort history in ancient times. In this story (written about 50 years after the event it narrates) we follow Paul, a miracle worker and irresistible rhetorician on his travels around the Mediterranean. The author has changed history in obvious ways, for example by portraying the relation between Paul, and the more Jewish Christians like Peter as harmonious. Compare for yourself to the letters actually written by Paul! Paul portrays the Jewish Christi [...]
This review is only for the book of Acts. I was able to download a copy of just Acts via Kindle.The language was easy to comprehend and made the specific stories and situations in it vivid and engaging. I did not cross reference with other translations to check for accuracy of translation. The end of the e-book works to try and calm any of those fears as it goes into a brief history of why this particular translation was created, and the vast amount of differing denominations who all collaborat [...]
Act is a very interesting book to read and I think one of the easiest and most accessible books of the Bible. It's got a concise storyline and one focal character which from simply a literary perspective makes the book easier to follow. I usually find Paul quite annoying, but since this book is not by him I'm don't find myself as aggravated against him. It's really his tone that gets to me, it's grading.(eBook)
