A scholar of the New Testament Church and a forerunner of modern Church renewal, Frank Viola casts his gaze back at the birth pangs of first-century Christianity in The Untold Story of the New Testament Church. Using a you-are-there approach, this epic volume gives listeners a first-hand account of how the witness of Christ's testimony impacted the world. In the era right after the Day of Pentecost, the power of the Holy Spirit prompted a massive harvest of souls, yet a great persecution surged against those preaching Good News to the lost. Now, get up-close with apostles Paul, Peter and John and learn of their personal struggles to fight for the faith amidst a backdrop of in-house strife and foreign tyranny.

    " the title and sub-title say it all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom | 7/9/2012

    " Good look at the history of the New Testament Church... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Glesnertod | 2/6/2012

    " A good introduction to the chronological events of the first 40-50 years of the Church. It helped me place many of the lesser known Church planters in the context of Paul and Peters time. I would probably change the subtitle to, "An Introductory Guide to Understanding the NT". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mathias | 7/12/2011

    " The current order of the books of the Bible is not in Chronological order. What happens when you read everything as they emerged? A story starts to unfold. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 John Finkelde | 6/19/2011

    " Stellar book that ties together snippets of the NT in a way that will transform how you look at Paul's life. Only improvement would be better and more extensive footnotes, preferably on each page. Excellent read. A keeper. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Michael | 5/7/2011

    " Modern churches use plastic utensils at picnics. Plastic utensils are nowhere to be found in the New Testament. If these words upset you, you will love this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Huggiworld | 4/26/2011

    " Great exploration for the modern church. "Every member functioning." Kudos to @FrankViola "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Lee Anne | 3/28/2011

    " Dry. Interesting backgrounds of religious practices. Strains at a gnat "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 M. | 2/23/2011

    " A life-changing and eye-opening book. It blew my mind in regards to the practice of our modern churches. The end result: I feel as if I'm becoming a better follower of the teachings of Jesus Christ.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steven | 2/12/2011

    " Book makes great points and backs them up well. Kind of belabors the point towards the middle/end. I like he ideas but think it could have been shorter. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 1/5/2011

    " I like Frank Viola's writing, this is a good book to understand history of the church and it's practices.

    Thanks for the research
    "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jayce | 12/31/2010

    " This is an interesting read. It asks excellent questions, but the research is weak and the logic to many of the arguments is faulty. Everyone should read this book, but no one should come to a final conclusion based on this book alone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Scott | 12/17/2010

    " Must read for all Christians. Only read it if you know your faith and trust God enough that if you find out the emperor doesn't have any clothes you will not question your faith. At the same time if you can't challenge your faith, is it real? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jacques | 11/30/2010

    " A great book- A must read for anyone who is a "church" goer! I find Barna and Viola take things a bit far at times and can be quite irritating with their extreme views on certain topics, but a must read none the less. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 A | 11/14/2010

    " Very enlightening and confusing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Patrik | 10/11/2010

    " Great eye-opener. This book will help you open your eyes and critically examine the practices of your church. Where did these practices come from? Are they biblical or where they tacked on to Christianity at a later date? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 James | 9/21/2010

    " A big challenge to paradigms of Church "
