“Jennings’s reading of the Acts story is precisely the sort of theological wisdom that we need in this tumultuous season. His call to live vulnerably in the present, between the Word of God embodied by those who have gone before us in the faith and the transforming Word of God continually spoken into being, is a call to deny our comfortable idolatries— of wealth and nation and family, for instance—and to follow in the way of Jesus. In so doing, we will experience the joy and the intimacy with God and neighbor that God intends for all humankind.

Read this book, but don’t just read it, let it seep into your life and the life of your church community.”
