About the Book
Into All the World is a two-volume summary of one of the most exciting books in the New Testament: the book of Acts. Both volumes are written by one who is not only a teacher of Bible and Christian history, but one who is a preacher, an elder, and a world-class scholar, writer and editor. Each statement is written with an understanding of the historical background and grammatical context, and with a commendable attitude. Study questions enhance each chapter.
