The Gospel of Luke is one of the treasures of the Christian church. Artful and engaging in his narrative style, Luke has the wonderful capacity to surprise his readers, to tell stories with a devastating twist in the tale, or to show a sudden new vista on reality. Luke's gospel has also exerted a massive influence on the way we see our world. Phrases and images from Luke have been part and parcel of our culture for centuries, and some of Luke's basic themes have shaped both faith and culture enormously.

Leith Fisher shows us an accessible way to engage with this gospel and opens up Luke's vivid picture-gallery of stories to all readers: read on to learn more of the road which beckons in this most universal of the gospels. Suitable for personal or for group reading, this book divides the gospel account into manageable parts so that it can be read altogether, or over a period of study. It could form the basis for a year's preaching through Luke or for a series of group studies; its forty sections also make it suitable for the days of Lent.
