The Gospel of Luke: Good News for the Poor
by Fr. Lawrence Farley
The Gospel of St. Luke has been described as "the loveliest book in the world." It was written by a Gentile for Gentiles, with the purpose of touching their hearts with the Good News of Christ. Luke speaks especially to the poor and the marginalized of society - including women - with an emphasis on joy, healing, and prayer.
With his gift for making the fruits of biblical scholarship accessible to the ordinary layperson, Fr. Lawrence Farley expounds this beautiful account of the life and ministry of Christ for contemporary Christians.
