Description

In her examination of the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles, Macrina Scott gives special attention to those stories and issues particularly characteristic of Luke's writings: concern for the disadvantaged--especially women, the poor and cultural minorities--and prayer. This book revisits twenty-four stories and offers reflection on each Scripture story based on modern scholarship and Scott's insights as a religious educator and scholar. Bible Stories Revisited provides extraordinary opportunities for spiritual growth, especially for those who have fulfilled responsibilities to children and careers.
