The Gospel According to Luke
The Gospel According to Luke (Volume 3)
New Collegeville Bible Commentary Series
AUTHOR: Michael F. Patella
How bland would our theological picture of Jesus be without the colourful contributions of Luke's Gospel (such as the birth announcements of John and Jesus, the Christmas scene of swaddling clothes, manger, shepherds and angels, Jesus' beloved parables of the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son, his last words from the cross, and his resurrection appearance on the Emmaus Road)?
Luke continues to challenge our lives. Focusing on Jesus and his earthly ministry among the early church, Michael, F. Patella, OSB, opens the Gospel of Luke to the 21st-century reader.
Patella presents literary, textual, and historical criticism in a readable manner to give readers a solid background for the Lukan Gospel. A brief introduction informs reader of Luke's literary technique, Luke as an evangelist, and other historical data.
