Metzger,Michael David Coogan Book Resume: The Bible has had an immeasurable influence on Western culture, touching on virtually every aspect of our lives. It is one of the great wellsprings of Western religious, ethical, and philosophical traditions. For countless generations, it has been a comfort in suffering, a place to reflect on the mysteries of birth, death, and immortality. Its stories and characters are an integral part of the repertoire of every educated adult, forming an enduring bond that spans thousands of years and embraces a vast community of believers and nonbelievers. The Oxford Companion to the Bible provides an authoritative one-volume reference to the people, places, events, books, institutions, religious belief, and secular influence of the Bible.

This is especially true when one realizes that we are living in the "age" which began in the first few chapters of Acts. Continuing the "Understanding" series, William M. Templeton in his book, Understanding Acts, Volume One, covers in detail the events of what he calls the "transitional days. It brings to life the actions of the apostles and disciples and the intervention of God in those days surrounding Pentecost, the embryonic birth of the church, and its explosive growth.
In the vein of exegesis, this commentary goes one step further by examining human relationships and behaviors. It not only explains the meaning of verses, but of events and eras. This book will be invaluable to the pastor, seminary student, Sunday School teacher, and lay person. He is married to the former Bonita Arlene Irby.
The Templetons have four grown children, eight grandchildren, and are awaiting the birth of two more. He then transferred to what is now Liberty University where he majored in pastoral studies and theology.
For more than forty years, Bill has been studying Scripture in an effort to bring the Word of God to every person in a clear and understandable fashion. Bigalke, Jr. Publisher: Xulon Press.
