This gospel book written by the Beloved Physician, Dr. Luke, has been called the most beautifully written account of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. It begins with the angel's announcement to Mary that she will give birth to the incarnate Son of God, and ends with His post-resurrection return to His heavenly Father's side.
One reviewer of this book said, "I love this book! It is simple without being condescending, profound without being preachy, and both biblical and practical." Another wrote, "First, what a great little book for families! You have done an amazing job, not only with this one on Luke, but also the one from Proverbs."
The New Testament account by Luke on the life of Christ is essential to the spiritual development of our families. "Good News for the Family -100 Devotionals from the Gospel of Luke" can help walk you through it in a family-friendly way.
