Acts and Mission 96

posted by Scot McKnight

We’re skipping quickly through the journey narratives of Acts because our focus is on Paul’s missional work and missional theology, and traveling [Fair Havens to the right] … well it’s part of it because missional people travel. Paul gets an […]

Acts and Mission 95
