Mission Extraordinary: The First Christians in Action by John Drane
What is everyone talking about? What is this news being proclaimed in the market-places and preached in the synagogues? Across the Roman Empire, people are talking about a man named Jesus. He was put to death, but has been seen alive again. His followers joyfully announce that God has done this, and that God is offering new life to everyone. People who believe are living changed lives: they have been nicknamed 'Christians'. This ten-volume series uncovers the exciting real-life story of the Bible.
