From the Publisher
. . . remarkable for the deftness and brevity with which its author draws us into the expansive, inviting world of 'the hospitality of God.' Wide scholarship and deep faith combine with keen pastoral sensitivity and clarity of expression to make Brendan Byrne a genial host at the scriptural banquet he has so splendidly provided. In this year of Jubilee there could not be a better book to read or a better gift to share.
Tony Kelly, CSSR, Australian Catholic University
To a generation for whom hospitality means gourmet food and designer table linen, Brendan Byrne offers a much-needed corrective. . . . Deeply engaged both with Luke's story and with the contemporary church, Byrne's study is a genuine contribution.
Beverly Gaventa, Helen H.P. Manson Professor of New Testament Literature and Exegesis, Princeton Theological Seminary
. . . a much needed and subtle reading of the Gospel of Luke. . . . Reading this book is a satisfying experience, made more so by the remarkable synthesis of the Lukan agenda offered by the 16 'theses' posted in the final pages of the book.
Francis J. Moloney, SDB, Professor of New Testament, The Catholic University of America
This is an excellent resource for students, teachers, and pastors interested in Luke's gospel or in search of a helpful perspective for pastoral and homiletic reflection and preparation.
Helpful and important book for evangelizers.
. . . a fine contribution to the ongoing enterprise of reading Luke as a whole . . . this little volume is to be recommended highly.
Catholic Biblical Quarterly
It is a very readable and concise commentary on the whole Gospel, aimed at the general reader. Byrne helps us to experience Jesus' life and ministry as a visitation by God that continually poses the question, How will this guest be received? Will we accept or reject him?
