The People of Acts

"A.D. The Bible Continues: The Book of Acts with notes and insights from Dr David Jeremiah" (Tyndale, 2015), is the Book of Acts with biographical notes about some of the people that feature in the scripture. In fact, in small print at the top of the cover are the words: "the incredible story of the first followers of Jesus, according to the Bible.

The New Living Translation of the Bible is included in its entirety, And every few pages or so a brief biographical sketch is included. People like Peter, Herod Agrippa and Priscilla are highlighted.
 There is a little more information than might be included in a good study bible.

IF you do buy this book, make sure to read the introduction, the  prologue,and the epilogue, because that's where the good stuff is found. The historical and cultural notes that Dr Jeremiah provides help the reader understand what would have been going on at the time that this story of the Christian Church was happening.
 If you're one of the many people who tend to ignore front and back matter, than you might as well go out and buy yourself a good study bible,

I received a copy of this book in exchange for the review.
