"Were not our hearts burning within us while he spoke to us on the way and opened the scriptures to us?" -- Luke 24:32
The Gospel of Luke can similarly come to life for us when, as twenty-first century Christians, we have a teacher who will share his insights into its original first-century meaning and context.
George Martin, a gifted Catholic writer on Scripture, employs commonsense vocabulary and concepts as he focuses on what Luke's words meant when he wrote them, with an eye toward their meaning for our times.
Whether you practice lectio divina, prepare and preach homilies, lead or participate in Bible study groups, are a Scripture teacher or seminarian, you will find George Martin to be an enlightening and accessible resource.
"George Martin's expositions of the Gospels are written with admirable clarity. They interpret each Gospel in its first-century context, convey the best insights of modern scholars, and challenge readers to apply the text to their own lives." -- Daniel Harrington, S.J., Boston College School of Theology and Ministry
