Bad Acts of the Apostles

Bad Acts of the Apostles

by John Henson

Electronic book text Publication Date: 26/03/2009

 
A revised, extended and enriched edition of John Henson's most provocative, most controversial, most subversive book. From the very beginning Christians have deviated by word and deed from the teachings of Jesus Christ. Why - and is there something that we can learn about the Early Church by examining those deviations? When Luke wrote Acts, the sequel to his Gospel, was he fully aware of the difficult path he was taking? Did he write simply to extol the exploits of the first Christians and prepare their leaders for canonization - or did he have a different agenda altogether? This is not your usual approach to Acts. What Luke narrated, and how those views differed from those of the other Apostles, sheds light on what we thought we knew. And, better yet, it will encourage Christians to seek anew the mind of Jesus.
