The Story Of The Early Church
A Pamphlet published by Rose Publishing
In this excellent pamphlet, you get a detailed outline and background on the book of Acts. Learn how the church got its start and about the early followers of Jesus Christ. This pamphlet cover a lot more than a short synopsis found in many Bibles and some commentaries. The book of Acts is God fulfilling His plan of renewal.
Included in the pamphlet is a complete outline, a timeline, shows the gospels in Acts and many other details for an understanding of the book of Acts. Included are charts that show the speeches of Peter and Paul. Also included are short stories about the main characters of God, Jesus, Stephen, Peter and Paul. The missions to the world are covered and those who carried out that mission. The mission to Jerusalem, Judea, Samaria and Gentiles
The pamphlet is printed in beautiful colors and contains maps of the missions and a chart about Paul's ministry.
I would recommend using this at the beginning of a study of the the book of Acts and/or include using it while you study Acts. A great companion to be included Sunday school, Bible studies or discussion groups.

Steve LucasAtenas, Costa RicaAge: 35-44Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Good overview of ActsNovember 1, 2013Steve LucasAtenas, Costa RicaAge: 35-44Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 4I have found that many times Rose Publishing pamphlets could serve as guides to building a sermon series. However, the "Book of Acts" pamphlet (Rose Publishing, 2013) is not like that. The information is solid and the presentation is beautiful. The author summarizes the book through brief summaries of the key characters presented in Acts.
However, I think some elements could have been stronger. For example, the timeline was great and may have been a better structure for the rest of the pamphlet. And although the map on page 12 showed the spread of Christianity in the first century, it failed to include Paul's four missionary journeys. Instead they are presented on the next page in chart form.
Overall, I still recommend the pamphlet. However, I felt like it could have been stronger based on other examples from Rose Publishing.
