The Doctor was aware of how much people need ‘to know exactly what Christianity is and what the Christian church is.’
Why should a modern reader consider the early chapters of Acts of the Apostles? In order, says Dr. Lloyd-Jones, ‘to discover what the Christian church is, what her message is, and what she is meant to do in this world’.
In this volume, the third in the present series which brings together much of Dr Lloyd-Jones’ evangelistic preaching on Acts, the main incidents in Acts 5:17-6:8 are reviewed and their lessons applied to the mind, heart and conscience of the reader. The arrest and miraculous release of the apostles, their preaching before the council, the advice of Gamaliel, the implications of the problem described in Acts 6:1, and the emergence and testimony of Stephen are considered in turn. Dr Lloyd-Jones’ burning desire throughout is that his hearers and readers should know ‘the glory and power of the Lord, as he was preached by the early church’.
