JOHN W. MAUCK provides an exciting new way of understanding the Book of Acts. With great skill and powerful arguments, the author contends that Acts was written primarily to defend Paul for his forthcoming trial in Rome. After reading Mauck's volume, the read we will not only gain a fuller understanding of Acts, but also obtain rock-solid arguments for defending Christianity and understanding its Jewish roots.What's Inside:
A fresh study of Acts as a legal "brief"
Insights gained from understanding of Roman law
Numerous Charts that outline Luke's "argument"
Recorded speeches viewed as "witness testimony"
A section-by-section review of all of Acts
A powerful apologetic defending the claims of Christianity
