Book Summary of The Mission of the Body of Christ by Russ Ramsey


The Bible is a story, but not just any story — it is God’s story. Luke’s historical record of the early church in Acts is a fascinating story of God continuing the ministry of Jesus through the Holy Spirit. We know it as the Acts of the Apostles, but behind their work was Jesus. Acts is the beginning of Jesus building His church. 

Bible readers can become familiar with the content and with that is a temptation to not give it the attention it deserves. When we do this we miss the glory of what God has revealed and preserved for us today. When we are awakened to this glory we give our time, attention, and diligence to understanding God’s word. 

God began building the church in Acts, and He continues to do the same today. The gospel has been taken to places Peter, James, John, and Paul never knew existed. Acts is a helpful reminder that the mission of the church can only happen when God is at work.
