- Did Paul ever make it to Spain? Was he beheaded in Rome?
- Is it true that Peter was crucified upside down?
- Was the Virgin Mary really bodily assumed into heaven?
The book of Acts ends at chapter 28. But its characters lived on.

My thoughts: 4 stars out of 5
I am taking this book not as a valuable resource of theology, but the theory of what might have happened to the apostols after Acts. Questions did rise up on the events taken place from the Judea and Jerusalem after the Pentecost. Then the History filled in the gaps between the first group of Christians til modern-day Christians.
The author gives his insight on what happened later…even though Acts had closed the last chapter, but the lives of many continues to act, live and manifest for God’s Kingdom…
