Publishers Description
Richard Rohr shares his understanding of Luke's message for today's reader. Grounded in scholarship but accessible to a general audience, this commentary sheds light on the main themes of Luke's Gospel. He works through each theme in a twofold way. He first addresses individual concerns, duties, and possibilities, and then connects them to the larger picture of cultural and ecclesial values. Fr. Rohr has a fascinating perspective, enhanced by his travels to Africa and Latin America, that can nourish and inspire both individual readers and the church at large.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Good News According to Luke: Spiritual Reflections?

Challenging Reflections  May 4, 1998
Richard Rohr in this book has been able to develop reflections on the Gospel of Luke that are personanally challenging but also consistent with contemporary scholarship. In fact, Rohr is able to use the findings of scholarship as a basis for many of the reflections. Luke presents a Jesus whose message of simplicity and love and faith contradict the world as it was in 80 AD and in 1998. Rohr comes back again and again to Jesus' statements and stories concerning inclusiveness and justice. Rohr reflects on a kingdom that is now. Only our lack of faith keeps it "not yet." The author also has some unique perspectives about some of the stories. In the story of the cure of the centurion's valued servant, Rohr suggests that there is scholarship that maintains an intimate relationship with centurion and servant, which is why the centurion begs Jesus not to enter his house. Unfortunately Rohr only makes the suggestions and does not follow through. He does this in the context of inclusiveness, which is one of the major emnphases of Luke's Gospel. Rohr points out many times that the leadership in Christian denominations would suffer from the stories of Jesus and the parables he told. And yet Rohr does not castigate these authorities. Jesus' challenges are not meant to be divisive. They are invitations to come to the Lord in simplicity and love. Rohr maintains that Luke's main question in this Gospel is "Can God be trusted?" The answer is the resurrection. This is a book that one can come back to many times. The reflections are powerful and require some time to appreciate them.
