Through over 100 meditational passages, respected theologian, R.C. Sproul helps us walk with Jesus as our mentor and friend. Learning to live with Jesus at the centre of our world is the secret to a meaningful life. Jesus is the pre-eminent character of history - even time is divided by his birthdate. He encouraged people from all walks of life to spend quality time with him. We cannot afford to ignore his compassionate, but firm invitation to become his friend and disciple.
Luke was a 1st Century doctor and historian. He realised the importance of the carpenter's son whose family came from an obscure Nazarene village, yet whose life's mission was foretold for centuries before his birth. Luke was concerned to record all that he knew about him and painstakingly collected information from eyewitness, giving an accurate account of the most important life in all history.
With an incisive mind and an ability to shine a clear light on his subject, R.C. Sproul's books have been widely read. With this book your heart will be stirred by arresting insights and your mind refreshed by helpful teaching. Sproul divides Luke's account of the life of Jesus into devotional sections that help us to understand his profound impact and re-evaluate our response to it.
The Study questions included will help you understand the Lord of the Universe who is also the friend of all who walk with him in faith.

"We cannot enjoy the company of Christ unless we are familiar with his words and deeds. This book will help anyone to get to grips with the Gospel of Luke and its wealth of information and detail. It could very usefully be given to a recent convert or serious enquirer, but the established believer would also find much of value here." - Evangelical Times
