Journeying with Luke
Full Product Description
Second in the series after the success of Journeying with Mark, this book gives fresh insight on Luke's Gospel as it is read and preached within the Church.
Explore the Gospel of Luke in the lectionary year C. Giving background information allows the reader to get a good grip on a greater understanding, prayer and action inspired by the life and works of Jesus.
Journeying with Luke pays special attention to the character of Luke and his 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.

Journeying With Luke (Lectionary Year C)Barry Vendy, via The Good Book Stall
Paula Gooder, Mark Pryce and James Woodward follow up their successful collaboration on Mark’s Gospel with this new volume on Luke, the Gospel for Year C of the Churches’ Lectionary. Once again it will be a useful introduction for individuals, groups and preachers, even those already familiar with Luke. It may be short, compared with many commentaries, but it contains plenty of stimulating material, with six chapters on the main seasons of the year and two more on ‘Ordinary Time’.
Paula, in addition to an introduction on Luke, the writer and the Gospel, then ‘explores the text’ (there are interesting features on such things as temptation, the journey and irony). In each chapter, Mark ‘imagines’ the text (and believe me, his poems and meditations really are imaginative. Look at his ‘out-of-character’ story of ‘shepherds’ in their Portakabin office! Or see Satan’s monologue after the bruising encounter with Jesus in the wilderness! And that’s just a taste.). Finally, James ‘reflects on’ the text, and preachers may find his thoughts especially helpful (for example on the person of Mary, on the nature of faith and on the parable of the Good Samaritan). Each chapter concludes with questions for an individual to mull over and for a group to have a go at, plus a prayer.
This is a book worth using.
