Item Description...
Overview
In her examination of the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles, Macrina Scott gives special attention to those stories and issues particularly characteristic of Luke's writings: concern for the disadvantaged - especially women, the poor and cultural minorities - and prayer. This book revisits twenty-four stories and offers reflection on each Scripture story based on modern scholarship and Scott's insights as a religious educator and scholar. Bible Stories Revisited provides extraordinary opportunities for spiritual growth, especially for those who have fulfilled responsibilities to children and careers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
For Group or Individual Study  Feb 15, 2005
Broken into twenty four chapters devoted to the Gospel of Luke and the Acts of the Apostles, this book is ideally suited towards groups or individuals looking to delve into a detailed study of the New Testament.

In her introduction, author Macrina Scott offers several helpful suggestions to consider prior to commencing your study. Each of the chapters contains a theme with several relevant scripture passages concluding with a series of interesting reflection questions. Additionally, suggestions for related reading are offered at the end of each chapter. For group study, the chapters appear to be the perfect length for individual group meetings and discussion.
 
Excellent Non-Academic Study of Luke and Acts  Jan 15, 2005
Like Scott's earlier Bible Studies Revisited book featuring the Old Testament, this work is designed to help readers use Scripture to reflect on their own lives. Both books, she says, are prompted by the large numbers of retired people who are "free to pursue the inner journey" in a new way. And while some direct references for those readers appear, the format and content are ideal for all ages and would be particularly useful in a small church community or bible study groups interested more in linking scripture to daily life than an academic treatise.

The 12 chapters on the Gospel of Luke address stories that do not appear in other gospels. Acts of the Apostles, written by Luke, is covered in full. Each chapter can stand alone and contains scripture passages (no need to have a bible at hand), and several discussion questions.

Scott is especially attentive to themes in Luke's writing. For example, in the story of Pentecost she draws attention to the similarities between Mary's nine-month wait for the birth of Jesus and the nine-day wait in the upper room for the arrival of the Holy Spirit and the birth of the church.
