Acts of the Apostles Bible Study Resumes Sept. 11

The Holy Infant study of Acts, which began in the spring, will continue on Sept. 11, 18 and 25, Oct. 2, 9 and 16. (New participants are welcome!)

Acts tells the story of the spread of the Gospel and the growth of the early church from its beginnings at Pentecost, following the ascension of Jesus. The Holy Spirit empowers the preaching of Peter, Paul, and the other disciples to take the faith from Jerusalem, to Judea, throughout Samaria and ultimately to the ends of the earth. It records the conversion of Paul and the momentous decision of the early church to welcome Gentiles as well as Jews into the church.

The group will meet weekly on Mondays at 7 pm from September 11 - October 16. 

The Study Set ($20), which will cover both Part I & II, includes a Study Guide by Little Rock Scripture Study Staff and the New Collegeville Bible Commentary, The Acts of the Apostles, by Dennis Hamm (Liturgical Press) 

Dennis Hamm, SJ, PhD, since 1975 has taught Scripture at Creighton University. He is author of the various journal articles and reviews, as well as the three-volume Let the Scriptures Speak, published by Liturgical Press (1999, 2000, 2001)
