It is a story filled with persecutions, murder, perilous journeys, intrigue, and miracles. Although it sounds like the plot of a contemporary novel, this is the real story of something far more important than any work of fiction could ever be. In The Genesis and Growth of the Apostolic Church: An Analysis of the Acts of the Apostles, author Norman A. Fisher uses scholarly research and passages from the book of Acts to tell the story of the development of the apostolic Church. Learn how the disciples of Jesus fought adversity to spread the gospel throughout the Middle East and into Europe, and hear the stories of the miracles that occurred along the way.“...a practical and dispensational perspective.” —Keith Gephart, Ph.D.“...a valuable, reader-friendly resource for pastor and layperson alike.”—James D. Price, Ph.D.Fisher’s scholarly work tells a thrilling story of triumph that proclaims the victorious gospel of Jesus Christ. The ministry of the Holy Spirit to and through the apostles is clearly evident in the pages of Acts and in The Genesis and Growth of the Apostolic Church.
