We know that it was a very successful venture with thousands of new persons being won to Jesus Christ and rapidly being assimilated into the life of the Christian fellowship.

How did they do it? It appears to be an impossible task. With all the differences of background, religion, language, race and nationality can the Acts account really have taken place as we read it? It most certainly can for when we read carefully we discover the key to their success to be drastic discipleship which can be described as simply taking the words of Jesus seriously. Jesus had commanded that his followers should go into the whole world and to make disciples from every nation. Another way of describing drastic discipleship is that of disciples making disciples who would be obedient to all the teachings of Jesus.

So we find in Acts those who remembered the commands of Jesus and accepted the power of the Holy Spirit to enable them to fulfill the instructions of Jesus to the letter. This book is in essence not just a study about how they were successful in the beginning of the Christian Church age but also a practical handbook of any church or follower of Jesus today who desires to be used of Christ in the work of securing and training other disciples. The book is presented in the strong belief that while the methods of winning and assimilating new believers may change, the abiding principles which are in evidence in the Acts are still valid for todays Church.

To assist the reader in grasping the validity of the books teaching, several questions are appended to each chapter. These are valuable for personal reflection or as discussion starters for group study.
