This is an excellent read! Perspective on Acts 1 thru 8, how many years the church developed and under who, and how? And how it spread form Jerusalem with such force that has never been matched since. Notice the form and function of the early church; without special buildings and worship services, clergy, etc, all of which is a modern day innovation and invention that has in large part replace the church you read of in the N.T. Very enlightening and helpful if your interested in returning to normal church. - Budnews (Amazon review MAR 2016)So you think you understand church life - read this book!Posted by Brian - Louisiana on May 16th 2012 on SeedSowers.comSo many times we have studied the beginning of Christ's church by picking out facts and figures and possibly have completely missed the essence of the true lifestyle of Christ incarnate in the Church, His body.
