This Book is a continuation of the Gospel of Luke, addressed to the same "Theophilus"
and composed by the same author as the earlier work. Apparently Luke wrote it in Rome about the period of its abrupt close, when the author
was engaged side by side with Paul in missionary work at the great capital.
The Book is by no means a complete account of all the apostles. The theme of the first twelve chapters is the inspiration of the Church by the
Holy Ghost, with the effect of this in building up the Faith in Judea under Peter's leadership. The remaining chapters then give an account of
Paul, chief of the leaders who spread the faith abroad. Of the missionary work of the other apostles and their many earnest assistants,
there is only occasional mention. No detailed record of those important matters has come down to us.
