As is my usual practice after Easter, I am reading my way through The Book of Acts. This has long been one of my favorite books of the Bible.
I remember riding in the back of a 1978 Chevy Van (with no air conditioning) in the summer in 1994 while traveling around as a member of my college’s summer outreach band. (And yes, that pic is pretty darn close to what it looked like. Can you imagine six sweaty college guys piling out of that thing in your church parking lot?).
It was on those long rides from one Christian summer camp to another, with the windows rolled down (did I mention there was no air conditioning?), that I read Acts over and over again. I love that book.
I also had John Stott’s commentary on Acts with me. I think I have literally gone through two copies of that commentary (the first one tore in half because I used it so much!).
I thought I would share some of my reflections on the book in a series of posts. Some reflections will be from yours truly, some from “Uncle John,” and others from various sources.
Reflections begin tomorrow.
