Reviews - What do customers think about Eating Your Way Through Luke's Gospel?

Fresh Approach Plus a Special Bonus  Feb 21, 2006
Robert Karris has written this book not for scholars, though he is one himself, but for continuing education students, and it is marked by what he calls "serious levity." Eating Your Way through Luke "first emerged from the oven of lively classroom discussion" at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, Karris explains. After a brief overview of eating rituals and food and drink available to Jesus and his disciples, the author turns to Luke's gospel with its theme of food. Here, before listing more than 75 citations of his own, he urges us to read through the gospel in one sitting, making notes of food references. This activity is designed to overcome misunderstandings stemming from lectionary-only acquaintance with scripture.

As a good teacher, Karris provides historical insights and spiritual reflections on Luke's food theme. He continues the "motif" of serious levity with such chapter titles as "Jesus, glutton and drunkard, friend of toll collectors and sinners." The style and scope of these chapters is what one would expect, enlightening and interesting

But the final part of the book contains a surprising bonus. Now that we have gone through Luke's gospel finding, examining, and interpreting themes, Karris point out, we have the ability to do the same with other scriptures. He helps us get started by supplying his own results from "trawling for the theme of food" in the gospels of John, Mark, and Matthew. Thus, we find ourselves in possession of a totally fresh and imminently accessible resource for individual and group study of the New Testament.
