Item Description...
Traces the rise of Luke from a Greek slave to a university-educated physician who admires Saul of Tarsus, a formidable Hebrew debater, and finds his spiritual outlook transformed by Christ's story.

Publishers Description
Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins forever changed the world of publishing with their phenomenal Left Behind series, which has sold more than 65 million copies. Now they are teaming up again to bring to life the glorious, dramatic story of Jesus Christ, told through the eyes of the Gospel writersA- Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. What Left Behind did for the Book of Revelation, The Jesus Chronicles will do for the Gospels.

Luke never met Jesus. Unlike the other Gospel writers, he never witnessed Jesus perform miracles or heard Him impart the Word that healed the souls of so many. No, his was a belief built on faith alone, like that of believers today. And his Gospel, filled with the stories of the LordA's divinity, speaks to the hearts of Christians everywhere.

In LukeA's Story, we follow him as he rises from Greek slave to university-educated physician. Along the way, he meets Saul of Tarsus, a formidable Hebrew debater who becomes both LukeA's role model and greatest competitor. Luke is intrigued but skeptical when he hears tales of a man named Jesus who purportedly performs great miracles of healing. But the dramatic story of the conversion and redemption of Saul, now called Paul, and the miraculous healing of one of his own patients by prayer, irreversibly changes LukeA's spiritual life. He pledges himself to Christ and makes the life-changing choice to write a Gospel based on years of interviewing believers about their conversions and listening to stories of the LordA's life from those who knew HimA-most important, His mother, Mary.

Luke wrote his Gospel to appeal to women, nonbelievers, and the disenfranchised. The result is scripture rich in the miraculous stories of Jesus that touches people all over the world today.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
It's historical fiction  Mar 2, 2010
Surely I'm not the only person who didn't initially realize that this is a book of historical fiction. Rather, it is the author's attempt to expound and speculate on the life of Luke and who he might have been. I stopped reading it early on, not because it wasn't a well written book, but because I knew that if I filled my head with this story then I would eventually forget which things I knew about Luke were facts and which things were part of this book of fiction.

I would not recommend this book to anyone wishing to learn more about the Bible or who Luke was. If you're just looking for a fun book about Biblical times, then it might be alright. I can't speak to that.
Regarding previous review by David Zampino  Dec 28, 2009
Regarding previous review by David Zampino (Delavan, Wisconsin)


Historians say different:

Historian Robert H. Gundry had the following to say concerning Greco-Roman education and the university at Tarsus:
"Greco-Roman education was liberal in its scope. Slaves supervised boys in their earlier years by giving them their first lessons and then leading them to and from private schools until they graduated into adulthood with a great deal of ceremony. As young men, they could then attend universities at Athens, Rhodes, Tarsus, Alexandria, and other places to study philosophy, rhetoric, law, mathematics, astronomy, medicine, geography, and botany" (italics mine). (Robert H. Gundry, A Survey Of The New Testament, (Grand Rapids, Zondervan Publishing House, 1994), pgs.81-82. It is clear by the author's inference that Tarsus was among the top four of the most desirable universities to attend in antiquity by the privileged classes in the Roman empire.

Also in The American Journal of Biblical Theology I found an article "The Early Life and Background of Paul the Apostle."

Wallace holds a Master of Theology and Master of Biblical Studies from Regent University School of Divinity. He is presently pursuing a Doctorate in Theology from the same institution.

He stated:" Tarsus was widely known in antiquity as a "university city," as well as a city of commerce in Paul's day. Educators from all over the Roman empire came to teach at the schools of learning at Tarsus. Grecian, Egyptian, Roman, African, and many other scholars came, bringing their learning and culture with them."
Luke's Story  Nov 21, 2009
This is an outstanding story covering Luke's writing of the Gospel of Luke and Acts incorporating historical context to cover Luke's life and Luke's and Paul's journeys through the Roman empire.
Great book. New insights into the life of St. Luke.  Aug 16, 2009
Interesting and fast paced. All the Biblical truths are there with fictionalized, but plausable details. Great Read, and helps to put the events of St. Luke's life in perspective.
Perfect for spirituality collections  Jun 15, 2009
LUKE'S STORY joins others in Tim LaHaye and Jerry B. Jenkins's THE JESUS CHRONICLES and receives a vivid narration by Broadway actor Robertson Dean in a survey of Luke, who never met Jesus or saw him perform miracles, but whose belief was built on faith. His rise from Greek slave to university-educated physician makes for a powerful account of how Luke's gospel was written: perfect for spirituality collections.
