Item description for Luke: A Guide for Reflection and Prayer (Daily Bible Commentary) by Henry Wansbrough...
Overview Luke the Evangelist wrote his gospel and the Acts of the Apostles, which account for nearly one quarter of the New Testament. In his gospel, Luke continually stresses God's blessings for the poor and the subtle dangers of wealth. Likewise, he underscores that acceptance of the gospel means rejecting the worldly standards of success. "He portrays with particular tenderness the striking difference between the proud Pharisee and the humble tax collector at prayer," writes Henry Wansbrough. And he "stresses above all that we are all sinners in need of repentance on our part, and forgiveness on God's." This Daily Bible Commentary takes a thoughtful journey through Luke's gospel that will lead the reader closer to the merciful Savior Luke depicts.
Publishers Description The Daily Bible Commentary is systematic and rich in research, yet devotional and reflective in tone. It is perfect for preachers, lay people, teachers, ministers in training, students? and anyone who wants to understand the Bible better and draw closer to God on a daily basis.
