Overview

Who is Jesus Christ? How can we really know Him? People have been asking that major question for 2,000 years. The best answers are found in the four Gospels, but how are they to be understood, and applied to our modern lives and faith?
Cardinal Schönborn, the well-known Archbishop of Vienna, Austria, and renowned spiritual writer and teacher, presents this third book in his series of meditations on the Gospels, seeking to help the reader to have a deep personal encounter with Jesus Christ as seen in the Sacred Scriptures. His first two books focused on the Gospels of Matthew and Mark, and this new book covers Luke. Sunday after Sunday, he uses the Gospel readings from Luke to explain the beauty of the Gospel in clear and understandable words.
The Cardinal shows how many of the most famous and important events in Christ's life, and his greatest parables, are only related in the Gospel of Luke. The powerful parables of the Prodigal Son, of the Good Samaritan, and of the Lost Sheep are only told only in Luke's Gospel. As well as the famous story of the tax collector, Zaccheus, so little he climbed a tree to be able to see Jesus, and the moving story of the disciples' encounter with Christ on the road to Emmaus after the Resurrection. It is also in Luke's Gospel that the important roles of women are given particular mention. Finally, it is thanks to Luke especially that we know some of the important details about the Passion of the Savior.

What People Are Saying

Benedict Groeschel
"Cardinal Schönborn convincingly brings home the truth and power of the Gospel image of Jesus. If you have lost touch with Christ, you will find him again. Disciples of Christ will discover new strength, conviction, and joy in this fresh expression of the reality of your Jesus and mine."--(Fr. Benedict Groeschel, C.F.R., Author, Arise From Darkness)
James V. Schall
"This book is not merely an aid to the Gospel of Luke, it is an inspiration. It reveals the practical eye of a pastor and the penetrating insights of a great scholar."--(James V. Schall, S.J., author, The Order of Things)
