Exploring the major themes found in Luke’s Gospel, including the ways of God_promise, fulfillment, salvation, and the work of the Holy Spirit_Koester shows us how to live in this world: in vocation and compassion, worship and prayer.
Each of the 47 devotions (one for each day during Lent and Holy Week) is freestanding, but the themes link groups of devotions together, lending depth and continuity to them. Vivid word pictures, crisp retelling of texts, and creative allegory spark delight in the beauty of Luke’s Gospel and a desire to follow Christ. Each meditation focuses on a key point from the reading in Luke and offers excellent questions for small-group discussion or for individual reflection, as well as a prayer.
