Watch our overview video on the book of Acts, which breaks down the literary design of the book and its flow of thought. In Acts, Jesus sends the Holy Spirit to empower his disciples as they carry the good news of his kingdom to the nations of the world.
I wasn't able to upload the video from the lesson below. You can click the link from Study.com I provided below if you want to watch their video. But I did find this Book of Acts summary that is equally good and the BibleProject YouTube channel has many other great videos teaching the bible using story telling and animation. I enjoyed the videos. (emphasis mine)

What is the main message in the book of Acts?
The main message of the Book of Acts relates to the Holy Spirit. In fact, the book is often referred to as the Acts of the Holy Spirit in addition to its established title, the Acts of the Apostles. The book's message may be summarized as the Holy Spirit empowers believers to accomplish the Great Commission, thereby forming and growing the Church.

What is the Book of Acts mainly about?
The Book of Acts is mainly about the introduction to the Holy Spirit and the enabling power of the Spirit in the lives of believers. Though many people are introduced throughout the book, the primary protagonists are the Apostle Peter (Chapters 3-12) and the Apostle Paul (Chapters 9-28).

Who wrote the book of Acts and what was his occupation?
The Book of Acts was written by Luke as a sequel to the Gospel of Luke. From the text it can be determined that Luke was a physcian.

Who wrote Acts?
The Book of Acts is the fifth book in the New Testament following the four Gospels - four separate accounts of the life and work of Jesus Christ. Whereas the Gospels end with the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus, the book of Acts begins with a brief reminder of these events. It continues with coverage of approximately the first thirty years of church history. The first chapter of Acts refers to the Gospel of Luke as the author's former book, hinting that Luke is the author of both books and Acts is the sequel. The author addresses both books to the same person, Theophilus in the first chapter of each.
