When Pontius Pilate ordered the crucifixion of Jesus Christ, he thought he was putting an end to the Jewish uprising that had been threatening the authority of the Roman Empire. What Pilate didn’t realize, however, was that real revolution was just getting started.
Based on the epic NBC television series, A.D. The Bible Continues: The Revolution that Changed the World is a sweeping Biblical narrative that brings the political intrigue, religious persecution, and emotional turmoil of the Book of Acts to life in stunning, vibrant detail. Beginning with the crucifixion, NYT best-selling author and Bible teacher Dr. David Jeremiah chronicles the tumultuous struggles of Christ’s disciples following the Resurrection. From the brutal stoning of Stephen and Saul’s radical conversion, through the unyielding persecution of Peter and the relentless wrath of Pilate, Jeremiah paints a magnificent portrait of the political and religious upheaval that led to the formation of the early Church.
Complete with helpful background information about the characters, culture, and traditions included in the television series, A.D. The Bible Continues: The Revolution That Changed the World is not only a riveting, action-packed read, it is also an illuminating exploration of one of the most significant chapters in world history.
I enjoyed reading this book. It is filled with a great deal of history and easy to read. The first two chapters give history regarding the death and resurrection of Christ. The book goes into great detail to explain what took place.
This book is based on the tv series, however I am happy I decided to read the book before watching the shows.
There are many scriptures from the Bible which is used to support the text written. Another great reason to read the book.. you know you are receiving correct information.
I highly recommend A.D. The Bible Continues: The Revolution That Changed The World. I'm sure you would enjoyed it also!!
