:Among all the writers of the New Testament, no one has been more undervalued than Luke. Not only are Luke's Gospel and Acts more extensive than all of Paul's epistles put together; Luke's particular slant on the story he tells also sets him apart. In this book Justo Gonzalez examines Luke's characteristic perspective and its relevance for the church today.
Gonzalez highlights eight themes in Luke's writing, including his concern for gender inclusivity, his emphasis on Jesus as Savior, his interest in eating and its connection to worship, and his stress on the great upheaval that God is bringing about. Focusing especially on the unique perspective that Luke brings to his writing as a historian, Gonzalez shows how Luke's narrative invites us into his story and connects us with the entire history of humanity.
Justo L. Gonzalez (Ph.D., Yale University) author of the highly praised three-volume History of Christian Thought and other major works, Dr. Gonzlez taught at Candler School of Theology of Emory University in Georgia for eight years followed by eight years at United Seminary.
