Written by St. Luke, Acts of the Apostles is often referred to as the Gospel of the Holy Spirit. In our new title, The Gospel of the Holy Spirit: Meditations and Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles, Fr. Alfred McBride guides the reader through this great book of the New Testament, verse by verse, illuminating its great meaning for Catholics of all times.
While the Old Testament was God the Father speaking to his people, and the New Testament was God the Son speaking to his people, McBride shows how Acts is the revelation of God the Holy Spirit.
The Gospel of the Holy Spirit: Mediation and Commentary on the Acts of the Apostles is a scholarly, yet immensley accessible, study of the Acts of the Apostles. It highlights the deep theological and spiritual meaning of Acts and shows the vibrant life of the early Church and its leaders, on fire with love for Christ. And it shows that the Holy Spirit was – and is – an active caretaker of Christ's Church and its people.
