Item description for A Woman Reads the Gospel of Luke by Loretta C. Dornisch & Dornisch Loretta...

Overview
How should a woman today read the Gospel of Luke? How can her perspective shed new light on the text? Is her view similar to or different from her counterpart in New Testament times who listened to the same stories? And what about the women, mentioned in Luke, who "ministered to them"? A Woman Reads the Gospel of Luke is a woman's view of possible ways of reading the Gospel of Luke. In Luke's text scholars find worldviews reflecting the experience and importance of women in first-century Christian communities, since Luke, more than others, seems to have been influenced by women and gives women importance in his Gospel. This readable, clear, chapter-by-chapter commentary relies on traditional historical, cultural, and literary interpretations. Nevertheless, it breaks new ground in asking the questions "How can we understand what is read?" and "How is the text fulfilled even as we listen?" from three points of view: that of a contemporary woman of today, that of a woman in the first century, and that of the women mentioned in Luke's Gospel. Those in ministry, in adult religious education groups, scholars interested in new ways of reading the New Testament, and all who are interested in women's perspectives in New Testament times will find that A Woman Reads the Gospel of Luke invites them to ask new questions that can be applied to personal, social, or faith aspects of their lives today.
