Publishers Description During the last hours of his life, Jesus climbed a hill called Golgotha. It was the place where common criminals were executed. The lamb of God was forced to carry his own cross up his final hill. Jesus knows what an overwhelming incline feels like. He pressed on and became our model of faith that endures...even in the most trying of times. Jesus' uphill victory led to our salvation and hope.As we watch Jesus in the passion narratives we see the best hill-climber ever. We discover practices that can be engrafted into our lives as a source of spiritual fuel to help us when we face the steep inclines of life. We all love those seasons when things go well, the wind is at our back, and sailing is smooth. But, as we follow Jesus we know there will be challenging times. In these up-hill moments we meet him in fresh ways and discover what it means to be his follower.

Reviews - What do customers think about Luke: Lessons from Jesus (New Community Bible Study Series)?
Nice study, just not as deep as I hoped. Apr 26, 2010
The major themes that are dealt with in bible studies: prayer, servant hood, discipleship, etc. are covered by lessons in the book. In the reviews that I read I heard that there were some thought provoking / deep questions that would help groups bond. I used this book with two groups, one group of Seniors (older than 70) and a high school group; neither had the type of introspective and deep conversations from the questions that I was hoping for. I prepared by reading the lessons, the leader's notes in the back, and prepared some follow along questions / personal examples. If you are looking for a book that will help you learn about the Gospel of Luke, this book is not for you. If you are looking for a book that will develop meaningful conversations and bonding, this book is not for you. If you want a book that will cover the basic lessons found in the Gospel of Luke, that is safe for all denominations, and that has nothing controversial in its material, this book will work for you.
It is not at all a bad book for a discussion group or Sunday School class, it is average, I was just hoping for better.
