Tells of the arrival of the Holy Spirit in a story
July 19, 2012
This series of the telling of the book of Acts in story form was above my expectations. The writer makes the story come to life. When the Holy Spirit came upon the believers, you could almost picture it in your mind. These two authors did a fantastic job in their research. It felt like I was living in the time of Acts.
I awoke this morning eager to pick-up where I left off on the fourth CD of this 6 CD audio book. Bunn and Oke had me hovering in my kitchen thinking of more tasks that I could do just to stay near the audio drama brought to my ears. This is the second book of the Acts Of Faith series authored by Davis Bunn and Janette Oke. They have taken Biblical accounts found in the book of Acts and woven them together with the fiction of their imaginations to create a story that brings life into characters of old. Never before have I thought about how people must have spread rumors saying that Peter killed Ananias and Sapphira; or thought of how the women must have felt when treated with loving respect by transformed men. This audio book allows you to step back into time and use your imagination to be there when God shows His power through miracles and His peace through a martyr's death. The account of firm faith, deep betrayal, and overwhelming loss will keep you riveted and give you a great appreciation for what our Brothers and Sisters went through in the early years of the Church. * * * * * The original book is published by Bethany House a division of Baker Publishing Group.
