Afraid to take a stand for Jesus?

What would you do if asked to defend or recant your faith?

Discover how the apostles, as well as other historical believers, were equipped to take a stand and defend their faith. The book of Acts comes to life in Marta E. Greenman’s relevant Bible study and will strengthen you to overcome difficult circumstances in your own life.

Take an in-depth look at:
  • The lives of Peter and John, and other first-century believers who answered their culture while standing firm for Christ in spite of persecution
  • Little-known facets of the stories of pilgrim, William Bradford, Martin Luther and martyr, William Tyndale.
  • The faith of heroes of the U. S. Revolution and our nation’s early leaders that shaped our great nation.
Strategies for overcoming, and powerful biblical principles, are intertwined with lessons from the believers of history in this eight-week, interactive Bible study. Five strategic lessons each week will encourage you in your faith, and equip you to face difficult days. Interactive questions will help you examine your own life and leave a deposit of faith.

“For we cannot stop about speaking what we have seen and heard.” (Acts 4:20 NAS)

My Review

If you're looking for a Bible study that really dives into Acts, the early church, and how to apply those truths to our lives today, this one is for you. I enjoyed reading about how the author was inspired by persecuted Christians who boldly live the Gospel every day. Because our nation was founded as Christian, we have so many liberties here that have made us weak Christians a lot of times (I have both my hands up here too) to where we are afraid to share the Gospel just because someone may get angry or laugh at us. The fire that we lack is found with the Biblical truth presented in these pages. I was unable to complete the entire study, so I can't vouch for every aspect of it, but it was just plain Bible truth organized into a 8 week study that was 5 days each. The author really took their time in research Biblically, and really organized it in a logical way with emphasis on Christian American heritage as well as those in the past that lived out their faith like Martin Luther. I also enjoyed the personal touch the author gives with some of her own spiritual experiences. Overall, if you're looking for a Gospel-themed Bible study for individuals or groups, this one is for you. 

I received a complimentary copy of this book, and all opinions given are entirely my own.
