Publisher's Description

What does it mean to belong to God's family? Consider the gospel of Luke which introduces us to Jesus the most important man who ever lived. This book demonstrates that encountering Jesus is a matter of urgency for all people everywhere. The Gospel of Luke is applied to a 21st century audience using contemporary illustrations including the recent financial crisis.

Editorial Reviews

"Peter Dickson has succeeded in transporting his readers from Aberdeen to the shores of Galilee in this vivid account of Dr Luke's impeccably researched biography of Jesus. But I must confess that this journey comes with a health warning - as we look at Jesus we'll discover much more about ourselves."
"This is one of the best books of its kind that I have seen. It brings the familiar chapters of Luke's Gospel into the arena of the Twenty First Century, and makes the Christian faith real and relevant. One of the chapters is entitled "The Real Jesus". We encounter him throughout this book. I predict a wide use for it."
Jesus has set me free from self-centredness to serve God and my fellow human beings, and given me grounds for believing that physical death is not the final end of life but the pathway to a future, better life in the presence of God. My prayer is that this book will help its readers by both creating and nourishing living faith in Jesus Christ.
"Working in the world of finance, I come across many who have very healthy bank balances but who are poor in other ways. This book . . . is free from religious jargon and is very accessible. Full of illustrations, the authors unpack what it means to live in relationship with the living God and so to live our lives to the full."
"This book will steer you through the observations of a remarkable physician, Luke, who practiced medicine 2,000 years ago. It may have been long before antibiotics and scans, but he recognized and meticulously recorded the most significant event in world history . . . this book will present you with a truly life-saving treatment - more than anything I or any other doctor can ever offer you!"
