Following the success of Journeying with Mark, this book offers fresh insights for those who want to reflect on Luke's Gospel as it is read and preached within the Christian Churches. It is the second in a series exploring each Gospel in the three-year cycle of the Lectionary. Journeying with Luke is a source of background information a way to greater understanding, prayer and action inspired by the teachings of Jesus a springboard for the imagination, helping us to visualize the lives, times and culture of first-century Israel a guide to reflection for those preparing to hear (or preach) the word of God This volume pays special attention to the particular character of Luke's writing - his use of story and song, and the importance of themes such as travel, mission and the outsider, and the relationship between the Gospel and the Book of Acts. With a blend of imagination, scholarship and pastoral wisdom, it will inspire worship and everyday discipleship throughout the Christian year.
