While there are many studies and commentaries on Acts, few focus on the staggering achievement of the people found within its narrative. The first Christians chronicled in the book of Acts turned the world upside down in the space of a generation. In this book Michael Green opens up the gripping story of Acts, highlighting the astonishing, volcanic eruption of faith found there and comparing it to the often half-hearted Christianity of the modern Western world.

In the course of this frank and insightful survey, Green explores the life and faith of the Christians of Acts, answering key questions raised at the start of each chapter, such as What kind of people were they? How did they live? and How did they organize and practice as members of the new church? After unveiling the nature of life in the early church, Green turns his eye to contemporary times, asking how we today can apply and learn from the first Christians' dynamic efforts at church founding, pastoral care, social concern, gospel proclamation, and prayer.

Combining trusted scholarship with a popular -- indeed enjoyable -- writing style, "Thirty Years That Changed the World will be ideal for classroom, church, or group study.

Industry Reviews

Nick Pollard -This lively and relevant book will help Christians keep pace with our fast-changing modern culture while holding to the principles of the early church.-Dave Burke -Green's unique mix of sharp scholarship and bang-up-to-date relevance results in one of the best guides to Acts around. I have enjoyed the book myself, and I know many others will too!-
