Luke : stories of joy and salvation

Integrating recent biblical scholarship with spiritual and pastoral reflections, John Gillman shows that above all Luke's Gospel is a story of joy, peace, forgiveness, and salvation. "Through God's power, the impossible happens," the author marvels, "bringing great joy to many," a joy that emanates from persons who have received Jesus' gift of peace. Book jacket
