Into the Fray: How Jesus's Followers Turned the World Upside Down by Matt Mikalatos

Goodreads | Amazon
Rediscover the wonder of sharing the story.

In the earliest days of the Christian church, the gospel spread out from Jerusalem in a burst of incredible stories – about a man who calmed a stormy sea with a word, healed the lame and the blind, enraged the religious leaders, and even raised people from the dead. Compare this organic, even entertaining, method of spreading the good news with how we are often encouraged to evangelize today, with clever arguments and our defenses up.

Somewhere along the way, we've lost the plot to the greatest story ever told.

Matt Mikalatos invites us into God's story, both to find our place in it and to rediscover the wonder that the apostles and their listeners experienced. As you lose yourself in these modern retellings of the events of the book of Acts, you'll find that sharing the story is easier and more rewarding than you ever imagined.

Into the Fray: How Jesus’s Followers Turned the World Upside Down is quite the interesting read. Author Matt Mikalatos brings the events of the book of Acts into the modern day with well-told narratives that remain true to Scripture and highlight their theological insights and relevance. It’s a refreshing and valuable read that I really enjoyed, and I would recommend it.

Thanks to Baker Book Bloggers, I received a copy of Into the Fray and the opportunity to provide an honest review. I was not required to write a positive review, and all the opinions I have expressed are my own.
