The Acts of the Apostles
Fr. Lawrence Farley explores the Acts of the Apostles as St. Luke's sequel to his Gospel—an apology for the Christian Faith as the fulfillment of Judaism, a gospel for all peoples, and a faith that poses no threat to Roman government or society. It's also the greatest adventure story of all time.
