About-

If you could add a book to the Bible, what would it contain? Here is one answer to that question: a "sequel" to Acts, showing the later careers of the Twelve, Paul's final travels before he faces Nero, the commission of the four Gospels, Jerusalem and its temple destroyed, the importance of the family of Jesus, and how close the apostles got to "the ends of the earth" in spreading the gospel. The Apostles after Acts includes a commentary that explains how the text was reconstructed from ancient sources and historical research. Here is a creative approach to the little-known but critical period when the New Testament record stops--and Christianity is just beginning.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"Written in the biblical format of the New Testament, The Apostles after Acts continues the story of the Acts of the Apostles. Schmidt classifies his work as historical fiction, but fiction based on scholarly research. The commentary that follows the text provides extensive documentation for his historical reconstruction. The result is a fascinating story that continues the narrative of the biblical account. His story is consistent with the style and the theology of the biblical account by Luke. His book challenges me to follow Christ by faith as the apostles after Acts did."
--Walter Hansen, Professor of Global Theological Education, Fuller Theological Seminary
