Product Overview

Among New Testament writers, who is the best historian? Without a doubt, says Justo Gonzalez, its Luke. Concerned about the particulars of people and events, Luke also gives readers the big picture, positioning the stories of Jesus not just in the history of Israel but in the history of humankind. Luke uniquely tells us the grand story of salvation -- then and now.Gonzalez skillfully highlights key themes in Lukes storytelling, including his strong emphasis on Gods great reversals, his keen interest in shared meals and their intimate connection to worship and communion, and his passionate underscoring of both the saving work of Christ and the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit. Writing in a conversational style, Gonzalez draws readers into Lukes story with fresh overviews and rich details, showing how Luke invites us to continue his gospel witness today.Watch a 2014 interview with the author of this book here:
