The Good News According to Luke

Spiritual Reflections

Richard Rohr shares his understanding of Luke's message for today's reader. Grounded in scholarship but accessible to a general audience, this commentary sheds light on the creation of the Bible and ways that we think about God's word.

"All religions have tried to discover something about God's nature and purpose. They have used their own common sense, their own logic, their own experience and their own images to come up with a description of God. What is unique about the Judeo-Christian tradition is that we believe God is the one who has revealed to us who God is. It is much more the story of God trying to get to us."
—from Chapter One

Reviews and endorsements

“Rohr not only offers a wealth of insight into Luke, but also proclaims a clarion call for us to follow Jesus today.”
Spiritual Book News

“There is no such thing as a book by Richard Rohr not worth reading. This is one of the most balanced, open-minded, inspirational, and entertaining thinkers we have today. In this new book—based on transcripts of talks he has given, as are almost all of his books—Franciscan Father Rohr tackles the Gospel of Luke. He does so not as an exegete, though his underlying scripture scholarship is utterly reliable. Rather, he unpacks Luke, reflects on its various parts, and comments on the meanings of Luke’s Gospel for today. A knockout of a book.”

“With razor-sharp acuity, Rohr delineates some of the major themes of Luke… You can depend on this author to consistently come up with unique insights and epiphanies that cut to the soul of things.”
