Besieged on all sides, the early church faced external and internal threats. Followers of Christ could easilyhave been defeated or diverted. A distinct minority in a pagan society, they could have capitulated to their culture. But, challenged by God through these holy writersand strengthened by the Holy Spirit, they stood fast, evenunto death. Written by the team who designed and wrote the Life Application Bible, this commentary series is practical,and strives for accuracy and theologial soundness. Slightly Imperfect.
