There are commentaries and there are books on preaching - but very few books that are specifically geared to the preacher or Bible teacher tackling a series on a Bible book or doctrinal theme.
Key features of books in this series are:
- Introductory chapters on 'getting our bearings in the book' and 'planning a series'
- The 'meat of the book' works systematically through a suggested series, working with the Bible teacher from text to sermon or talk
- The end of each chapter has a suggested preaching/teaching outline and a detailed Bible study which would be ideal for small groups.
Teaching Acts is a welcome addition to the series. Teaching Acts takes the book of the Acts of the Apostles and enables the leader to explain the context of the early formative days of the church and the application of practical theology to specific situations that still affect the church today.
