Anselm Gr n writes an introduction to the Gospel of Luke that will inspire those who find it difficult to encounter the real Jesus in the writings of the New Testament. He shows the Jesus of Luke's Gospel to be the key to a spiritually fruitful life, something other Biblical exegetes fail to do. Gr n's concern is to interpret the text in terms of the needs and longings of contemporary Christians. He pierces through alienating and inherited impressions of the text to show that what Luke is giving us is a record of his own experience of Jesus. He sees the Gospel as an expertly composed, entertaining and valuable piece of publicity on behalf of the Jesus movement; and its message is as powerful in the twenty-first century as it was in the first century.
