Reviews

The book of Acts of the Apostles is the exciting narrative of the church’s formative years. Acts begins with the ascension of Jesus and takes readers through the activities of early believers seeking to fulfill the Great Commission. Throughout the course, students examine the difficulties faced in the decades following Pentecost as the church sought to formulate doctrine and send missionaries throughout the Roman Empire. Learners will benefit from Babcock’s academic and pastoral background as he teaches the text’s historical and theological insights as well as noting spiritual applications for ministry today.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed the lecturers as well as the minster delivering the lecture. Reminded me of my former Pastor I studied under as a child. Such a blessing.

  • Although this was a very interesting and informative course, I do feel that it would have been a lot better with visual aids for example seeing the lecturer and having slides of Pauls journeys which would have helped with retaining attention to the subject matter. The previous course I have completed all had either the lecturer on screen or pdf format as an adition to the lecture to read at my leisure and visual aids.
