A few authors are also artists, not only communicating ideas, but painting pictures with words. Such is the ability of the author, David Anderson-Berry. With the observing eye of a medical doctor, the heart of a poet, and the pen of a ready writer, he makes the journey as delightful as the final destination. He is not, however, one of those writers who, while giving a graphic display, take liberties with the original scene – as artists have a tendency to do.
The author paints for us the main scenes in the book of Acts, especially the ongoing ministry of Christ for the Church. Remaining true to the biblical text, the author adds highlights and shadows from his palette of history, geography, astronomy, botany and other helpful hues from the spectrum of truth. As such, he enlarges our biblical vistas and enhances our appreciation of the One who is the central figure in the panorama, our Lord Jesus Christ.
