Reading Luke For The First Time
by Wilfred J Harrington
Publisher:Paulist Press distributed by Columba Press
An excellent introduction to Luke's Gospel. The book is set out in eight chapters and follows the text of the Gospel. The printing is of a good size and the first chapter sets out the outline of the Gospel with some detail of its structure. The subsequent chapters explore the text and events which Luke records, adds a conclusion and provides some useful notes. At the end there is a handy glossary and a select bibliography. This book does not probe any deep theological issues but does provide a useful guide to reading and understanding Luke's Gospel. This is the third volume in a series beginning with Reading Matthew for the First Time and Reading Mark for the First Time. As introductions to the Gospels they will be a reat help to anyone coming new to the Gospels.
