Book of Acts

The Book of Acts is a tremendously important book of the New Testament.  It is the bridge between the Old and New Testaments and, as such, is a transitional book.  Not only is it important for laying the foundation of the history of the early church, but correctly understanding the transitional nature in this period is key to understanding the rest of the New Testament correctly.
