The Church's Birthday Story
The Pick: The Mission of the Body of Christ by Russ Ramsey
The Premise: A journey through the story of the Biblical book of Acts.
The Pros and Cons: Russ Ramsey’s desire is for people to know what the Bible is all about. With that in mind, he has crafted a series of books retelling the stories of Scripture (in fact, I have previously reviewed Behold The Lamb of God, another book in the series).
In The Mission of the Body of Christ Ramsey takes his readers through the events depicted in the book of Acts, vividly retelling the stories of the birth of the Christian church and weaving in relevant pieces from the letters of the Apostles.
Arranged in thirty-one, easy to read chapters, and with the scriptural text clearly laid out at the beginning, The Mission of the Body of Christ is perfect for a daily devotional time. Or, if you’re like me, you can forget the daily part and just digest it as quickly as you can!
The Perfect Book For: Anyone who enjoys studying Scripture with fresh eyes.
“The death of Jesus did not bring his ministry to an end. It fanned it into flames.” (pg. 20)
