No matter how many times you read the gospels, you can always count on finding a stone or two left unturned. This 12-lecture course sits like a glittering gem under one of those stones, waiting to be treasured.

One of four authors to pen the greatest story ever told, Luke gives inspiring warmth and dimension to the life and ministry of Jesus. As you revisit his gospel, you’ll gain an appreciation for its emphasis on compassion—especially for marginalized or underprivileged groups like women, the sick, and the poor.

Brilliantly composed by the author of Choosing the Better Part? Women in the Gospel of Luke, this audio course lets you view the Gospel of Luke through a fresh lens. A gifted storyteller, Sr. Barbara Reid’s experience leading retreats in the Holy Land shines through in the detail and vividness of her delivery.

Sr. Reid’s storytelling ability perfectly reflects that distinctive feature of Luke’s gospel: preaching in parables. As you know, the Gospel of Luke contains the parables of the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son. He was also the only evangelist to record the story of Jesus’ resurrection appearance to the two disciples on the road to Emmaus. Under Sr. Reid’s expert guidance, you will re-examine these famous accounts with an eye towards Luke’s emphasis on inclusivity, healing, and forgiveness.

This spirit of inclusion—regardless of sex, class, or race—is central to both the Gospel according to Luke and Christianity at large. As you navigate the modern world, let the Lucan Jesus live in your heart and mind.

4 reviews for The Gospel of Luke: Audio Course & Free Study Guide

  1. Sr. Phyllis

    This course helped to understand the Gospel of Luke from a woman’s perspective.

    This course helped to understand the Gospel of Luke from a woman’s perspective. The feminine voice is necessary to get a balanced view of things.

  2. Eamonn

    Very clear concepts, easy to grasp.

    There is such variety. Sr. Barbara’s descriptions are colourful… Very clear concepts, easy to grasp. I can remember her saying there are four types of miracles. Luke’s gospel suits her. One of her topics is “All are Welcome”–inclusiveness emphasized. Modern society rejects so many! I listen to one of these every second day.

  3. C. Matthew H., PA.

    Winter Survey: January 2017

    Sister Reid’s approach to the Gospel of Luke gives listeners the historical context of the work as well as themes that have pastoral significance today. Her presentation helps me to read this Gospel with fresh eyes, especially in terms of what the Kingdom of God means in terms of the poor, women, and marginalized populations.

  4. David N., NY

    Winter Survey: January 2017

    Very good presentation – good insights for preaching and teaching
