I might summarize it differently - something along the lines of:

Division within threatened the ministry of the church.
The ministry of the church was enhanced by effective serving
Persecution threatened the ministry of the church
Not even murder can stop God's mission to carry out His Word


You should make your chapter summaries a little longer.


You should add a little more details to your summaries. They are so short and brief. I had to go to another summary to get information because they were so brief. I think that 4 or 5 sentences would be great. That would make it a lot easier for me. Thanks- Mcenna


V 10 But they could not stand up against the wisdom the Spirit gave him as he spoke.
I am reminded of the verse 1 John 4:4 .....because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world.
