The Jesus Chronicles #3

Unlike the other Gospel writers, Luke never saw Jesus perform miracles or heard His healing words. His belief was built on the strength of his faith, like ours today.
What we know historically about Luke is built on tradition. Around this tradition and his gospel writings, Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins have created Luke’s Story, a compelling novel that follows Luke from Greek slave to university-educated physician to the author of one of the four Gospels. Along the way, he meets Saul of Tarsus, who becomes Luke’s role model and greatest competitor. Luke is intrigued but skeptical when he hears tales of a man named Jesus who performs great miracles of healing. But the gripping story of Saul’s conversion, now called Paul, and the miraculous healing of one of his own patients by prayer, changes Luke’s life forever. He pledges himself to Christ and writes a Gospel based on years of interviewing believers and listening to stories of the Lord’s life from those who knew Him—most importantly, Mary, the mother of Jesus.
Luke wrote his Gospel to appeal to women, nonbelievers and the disenfranchised. The result is Scripture rich with stories of a Savior that touch people all over the world today.

Again, LaHaye & Jenkins go extra bases with a novel about integral characters and events surrounding the gospels. "John" and "Mark" were great reads, "Luke" is as well. I can't wait for Matthew. LaHaye & Jenkins pull information seldom known about Luke, go into detail where others leave off. Not only are facts presented, but insight into the personalities of New Testament writers. This series adds much to my Bible reading, with added insight into characters. Bravo.
