  • Bible Trivia Quiz: The Book of Acts Chapters 8-14
    The book of Acts is a true and compelling account of the first Church. Chapters 8 - 14 carries us into the story of Saul's conversion and ministry, along with Peter's continuing story as an Apostle.

The Book of Acts:The First Century Church in Action

The Apostles who founded the Church turned the world upside down with the glorious message of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. This book puts hands and feet to the message that we heard in the Gospels. I've studied it many times and I never cease to be amazed by it and challenged to live it out in my 21st century life. I have a long way to go, but this book gives us a play by play story of how to be a dsiciple, and I take that to heart.

The book of Acts is so long and so very full of events, I will try to keep this simple. I can probably do several quizzes on this book. Have fun with this and also let the Spirit challenge you.
