Outstanding... a great opportunity to learn Church history in a really fun and easy way... I was able to see the work of the Holy Spirit in the early Church, and it causes me to reflect on how the Holy Spirit is working in our Church today.

I think any parish would want to offer this program. It’s a great way to set a fire in your parishioners’ hearts to go out and spread the good news.

Steve’s presentation style is phenomenal. He not only has all the facts, but he brings out the personalities of the characters involved.

This study really helps me to get a more complete picture of our story as God’s people. The new covenant that was established through Jesus is a new kingdom and an eternal kingdom, and I could really see how that kingdom came about and how we are now part of it.
