    Fascinating little history book, going over the events of the book of Acts, and interweaving them with the missionary journeys of the apostle Paul and their corresponding letters from the New Testament Accompanied by photos, a few charts, and plenty of references from extra biblical historical sources, this book makes a good timeline of church history from about 33 AD through 68 AD Very interesting easy to read.
