The series is designed to fill that missing niche between the general overview for the popular audience and the detailed, heavily footnoted studies for the specialist. We will see how well it does that—once the cabins close for the season! I did look over the first two chapters, and it sounds promising. Here's a portion of the publisher's blurb:
This book was born out of the author's deep conviction that today's Christians can benefit enormously from learning what God has done in the past. The mighty acts of Christ did not come to a halt soon after the events recorded in the book of Acts. In every century since the first, the Almighty has been at work and believers can trace his footsteps by studying the way that Christians of a previous generation faced the challenges that confronted them.
