What does it mean to belong to God's family? Consider the gospel of Luke which introduces us to Jesus the most important man who ever lived. This book demonstrates that encountering Jesus is a matter of urgency for all people everywhere. The Gospel of Luke is applied to a 21st century audience using contemporary illustrations including the recent financial crisis.
Peter Dickson is the minister at Trinity Church, Aberdeen. He previously served as minister at High Church, Hilton in Aberdeen. He grew up in Edinburgh and St. Andrews and became a Christian through the witness of Scripture Union camps. He is married to Eleanor, who comes from Inverness, and they have two children, Esther and Jamie.
David Gibson was born in America and grew up in East Africa and Northern Ireland. He has a Ph.D in Theology from the University of Aberdeen and is currently the Assistant Minister at High Church, Hilton. Married to Angela, his interests include writing, playing football, watching rugby, entertaining and being entertained by his children, Archie, Ella and Samuel.
"Not a safe book. Peter Dickson is a bit sneaky (the book is so engagingly written) and yet terribly stubborn (he refuses to offer you a bland, smooth, mass-market, shrink-wrapped Jesus). So reading it may make you savingly angry or fearfully grateful-either of which will be okay. I find so refreshing this combination of contemporary clarity and old, rugged gospel."
