Editor Reviews
From the Back Cover Dr. Luke's carefully researched account shows how Jesus compassionately identified with the neediness of humanity, implicitly placing its emphasis on the Messiah as Immanuel, God with us. His Gospel presents a messiah who is never distant or uncaring. Instead, Jesus climbs down from the heavenly realms to enter the clutter and chaos of our fallen world and to subject Himself to our faults and frailties, pains and passions, sorrows and sicknesses. Luke describes the man Jesus and His ministry in vivid detail. Only in Luke's account do we see the Almighty wrapped in swaddling clothes and matching wits with the greatest theological minds of His day as a boy. We see Jesus as a minister, healing the diseased in love. He presents Jesus as the perfect God-man who came to save all of humanity, Jew and Gentile alike. Luke's history is no mere chronicle of a dead hero. This is His Story! And the story of Christ continues today--inviting you to join the narrative and to help write the conclusion.
