"N.T. Wright brings his usual historical and exegetical skills to bear on the Gospel of Luke in a pastorally thoughtful and accessible manner." —Presbyterian Outlook
"Insightful daily meditations based on the gospel of Luke." —Bill Tammeus, "Faith Matters" blog
"Jesus, Wright shows, was born into a society plagued by political power plays, theological divisions, shifting loyalties, and economic injustice. Discussion prompts at the end of each reflection encourage readers to connect these first-century realities with the challenges of our own day. Through Wright’s lively writing and thoughtful prompts, Luke’s questions become our questions and his good news becomes our good news." —The Christian Century
