Dive into the Book of Acts with This Companion Bible Study to Nancy Guthrie’s Book Saved

Over 17 lessons, the Saved Personal Bible Study will take you deep into the book of Acts so that you’ll be able to see clearly its connections to the Old Testament, the life and ministry of Jesus, and what is to come in the new creation. Designed to be used by those studying the book of Acts on their own or with a group, these carefully crafted questions on the text will prepare readers to get the most out of reading the corresponding chapter in the Saved book or viewing the corresponding session in the video series. 

Each study takes about 30–60 minutes per week and includes 9–12 questions on the text. The questions can be answered as briefly or thoroughly as the reader prefers. After completing the personal Bible study, readers will have a firm grip on the events of the initial spread of the gospel from Jerusalem, to Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. 

  • Thoughtful and Accessible Bible Study: Companion to the book and video series, Saved, which walks through the 28 chapters of the book of Acts in 17 lessons
  • Written by Nancy Guthrie: Experienced Bible study curriculum writer, author of the Seeing Jesus in the Old Testament Bible study series and the award-winning book Blessed: Experiencing the Promise of the Book of Revelation

Endorsements

Salvation is a favorite term of Luke’s. Nancy Guthrie faithfully and skillfully walks through Acts, showing that God’s heart is for all people to be rescued from their greatest enemies: sin and death. Even though Jesus has ascended to the heavens, the life-giving presence of Jesus continues to spread. This is a must-have book as you work through the narrative.”
Patrick Schreiner, Associate Professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary

“The introduction alone is worth the price of this book, and the book doesn’t disappoint. In it you’ll find deep nourishment for your soul and experience an increased desire to apply yourself to the study of God’s word. With careful exposition and passion, Nancy Guthrie leads us to see our Savior’s work in the book of Acts and (to paraphrase her) ‘makes us long to live in God’s kingdom and experience his power more than ever before.’ This book is an invaluable resource for individual or group study.”
Donna Dobbs, Women and Children’s Ministry Director, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, Mississippi

“Nancy Guthrie’s Saved gets at the heart of Acts. Her volume reminds the church of the resurrected Lord sitting on the Father’s throne. Christ pours out the Spirit upon believers, and the Spirit ensures the arrival of God’s glory to the ends of the earth. What began in the first century continues today, and we must reconsider our calling as it relates to our community and the world around us.”
Benjamin L. Gladd, Executive Director, Carson Center for Theological Renewal; series editor, Essential Studies in Biblical Theology

“Nancy Guthrie walks us through the book of Acts, helping us marvel at the big themes and enjoy the unexpected details, all of which come together to give us confidence that as the news of the risen Jesus is proclaimed, God is saving people. Getting to know Acts can be a daunting prospect, especially if you want to teach through it. I’m thrilled to have a resource like this, which I will be turning to on a regular basis.”
Amy Wicks, Associate for Women’s Discipleship and Pastoral Care, St. Silas Church, Glasgow, United Kingdom
