Sir William Mitchell Ramsay set out for Asia Minor fully expecting to prove the Biblical book, The Acts of the Apostles, inaccurate.
He dismissed as nonsense historical and geographical references made by Luke in the book of Acts. However, after decades of archaeological discovery in Asia Minor, Ramsay was forced to admit the accuracy of Acts, and the reliability of its author, Luke. Ramsay documented his findings in his book, The Bearing of Recent Discoveries on the Trustworthiness of the New Testament.
