Product Description

Luke, the inaugural volume of the Belief Theological Commentary Series, written by the preeminent historical theologian Justo Gonzalez, presents the first full-length treatment of the Gospel of Luke by a theologically oriented commentator. The gospel of Luke heralds Jesus' birth as "good news of great joy for all the people" (Luke 2:10), and Gonzalez skillfully guides us and challenges us to ask, "What is the modern relevance of this text?" The result is a fascinating and important theological discussion of Luke's gospel and its relation to the life and proclamation of the church and its members.

This new series will build on a wide range of sources in areas such as biblical studies, the Christian tradition, popular culture, and the language of Christian worship. Whereas most commentaries emphasize the Bible's ancient meaning, Belief concentrates on the living Word relative to the theological and ethical concerns of today.

Noted scholars representing diverse backgrounds and perspectives will ensure a fresh and invigorating approach to the Bible. Nearly half of the volumes in the series will be written by women, and almost a third will be written by ethnic minorities. Authors include Michael Battle, Anna Case-Winters, Harvey Cox, Miguel De La Torre, Boyung Lee, Thomas G. Long, Daniel Migliore, Stephanie Paulsell, Marcia Riggs, Donald Saliers, Ronald Sider, Leanne Van Dyk, and Allen Verhey.

Editorial Reviews

"Without giving up the requisite attention to the details of the text, the volumes draw upon the rich theological traditions of the past and attend to the continuing theological issues and perplexities of the present." Patrick D. Miller, Emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary
"The interface between biblical texts and constructive theology is never easy or obvious. This welcome series holds great promise for a new engagement at that interface." Walter Brueggemann, Emeritus, Columbia Theological Seminary
