A masterful storyteller with the compassion of a physician, Luke paints a picture of Jesus as healer, full of mercy, forgiveness, and love. The Gospel of Luke features the lovely Magnificat, Mary's love song to God, and the nativity story heard in Christmas pageants around the world. Luke includes three parables not heard in any other gospel: the prodigal son, the good Samaritan, and the unjust judge. Luke, also believed to be the author of the book of Acts, emphasizes prayer as central to the life of faith.
Join the journey with Luke with fifty days of scripture readings, meditations, and prayers written by dynamic spiritual leaders from around the world. A Journey with Luke is part of a series of fifty-day Bible studies and is an extension of The Bible Challenge, a global initiative to encourage daily engagement with the Word of God.
Authors include: J. Neil Alexander, Marjorie Brown, Matthew Croasmun, Robert S. Dannals, Miguel Escobar, Vicki Garvey, Scott Hayashi, Stephen Huber, Mike Kinman, Jeffrey D. Lee, Russell Levenson Jr., Edward S. Little II, William Lupfer, John M. McCardell Jr., Andrew B. McGowan, Christine T. McSpadden, Sara Miles, Kate Moorehead, C.K. Robertson, Matthew Sleeth, Dabney T. Smith, Martin L. Smith, Gregory E. Sterling, Dame Mary Tanner, Miroslav Volf, Jesse Zink, and Marek P. Zabriskie.

Whether you have a long-established daily spiritual discipline or you are considering starting one, this is a wonderful resource. The Gospel According to Luke is divided into 50 daily readings and each is accompanied by a short reflection, a question or two and a prayer. The reflections/questions/prayers are written by leading Anglicans worldwide and offer thought-provoking and fascinating interpretations on the day's lesson. Each day's reading takes between five and 10 minutes, making this an accessible spiritual discipline for even the busiest among us. (If you enjoy this, the publisher, Forward Movement, has a 50-day challenge for the other three Gospels, as well as the Acts of the Apostles.) -Cathryn Conroy, Amazon Review
Love how this is organized with the scripture, Reflections, Questions, and Prayer. Enjoyed this so much with my mother and sister that we are now studying from the companion book of Acts. Also, the Reflections provide a contemporary point of view that is relevant to the scripture. -Kim, Amazon Review
Our small group is enjoying this book, especially the questions and reflections. -Martha J Long, Amazon Review
I looked forward to reading each day. Having different authors kept the reading fresh and informative.

I really enjoyed reading this on my Kindle. I liked the reflections and questions as well as taking Luke one day a time! I was able to stay with it and not get bogged down. -Karen, Amazon Review
