Publisher's Summary

Luke is a Gentile writing for a particular person, another Gentile named Theophilus. In his Gospel, Luke provides a detailed and orderly account of the life and ministry of Jesus. Although Matthew, Mark, and Luke draw from many of the same sources for their material, each Gospel writer adapts his material for his particular audience and purpose. Luke presents his material in a brilliant prose style, as he creates a specific voice for his narrator and specific, identifiable voices for his characters. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he explores Luke with gifted storytelling and illuminating discussion.

Audible Editor Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.
Luke, as Dr. Creasy describes him was a physician, gentile, master rhetorician, and the only gospel writer to give unique voices other than his own and Jesus' to characters in the story. Comparing it to Huckleberry Finn, Creasy discusses this and other unique stylistic choices as well Luke's context in history and among within scripture.
