Good effort despite the uneven presentation of scenes
8 September 2019 | by raodonaldSee all my reviews

I have to say, I really applaud the effort to promote this text, which is summarily suppressed in modern theology. I appreciate the simplicity used, not trying to over-reach by replicating the actual scope of action as it probably happened. It's enough to just re-state the events and provide the essential document in its historical setting. Although the text is silent on the presence of the Pharisee Saul, we know that he is present and that he is a witness to the birth and growth of the Church. This lends all the more to his dramatic change from persecutor to promoter. His testimony before King Agrippa was transfixing for me as a believer. It's a just movie, but it does have a positive effect, unlike that ridiculous, lying production titled "Noah." "Acts" demonstrates that faith in Christ didn't occur in a bottle, that men and women of that era testified to the power of God to change their lives and many paid for their testimony at the hands of the enemies of this message.
