Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great Insight into Luke  Nov 29, 2005
Since, at the time of this review, you do not get to look inside this book, I am going to give the outline and review each section as I go.
The author does a great job of treating Luke literarily without getting bogged down in any form critical debates. The out line of the book is as follows
1. Topography: The Landscape of Spiritual growth: Jordan, Desert, Lake, Mountain, Conclusion.
In this section the author illustrates how Luke uses the Jordan as a place that separates the wilderness from the promise land. The desert is seen as a place of testing. The Lake or Sea is seen as an uncontrolled place that only God can control. The mountain is seen as the place to draw close to God. The author develops each of these ideas successfully.
Chapter two is entitled Journeys: The Itinerary of Spiritual formation. An example of this is Resseguie treatment of the two men on the road to Emmaus and the enlightenment that they receive on their journey.
Chapter 3 is Families and Households: Models of Spiritual Development. The models are slaves, children, and family ties.
Chapter 4 is called Meals: Spirituality and Hospitality. This is an interesting treatment of table etiquette and what it symbolizes.
Chapter 5 is entitled Clothing: A map for the Spiritual life. For me this was one of the most insightful (which is saying allot since this book has many point of great insight) chapters in the book, specifically what the author has to say about the temple veil being torn into from top to bottom. He says, "The rending of the veil, then, is an act of disrobing the temple and removing its distinctiveness as sacred space precisely at the moment before Jesus dies ... In disrobing the temple, God exposes the temple as inadequate to accomplish God's purposes." This quote is found on page 98-99 of this book and is just an example of the insight of Resseguie.
Chapter 6 is entitled Consumption: The Spiritual Life and Possessions. Here it is shown how that Luke links spirituality with greed and consumption. Resseguie defines, for example, the disease of dropsy as a bloated condition that causes one inflicted with it to crave liquid, which is the very thing that has made him/her sick. This is just one of the several examples that the author covers in this section.
This book is well written by a literary scholar. At the end of each chapter is a conclusion where Resseguie succinctly sums up everything that he says in the chapter. If there was one complaint that I would file against the book it is that the author thought it necessary to use very obscure words to express what he was saying. I had to go to the dictionary at least 25 times just to make sure of my understanding. For example, the writer uses the word "feral" which means "wild". He could have just as easily said wild. To express otherworldly or heavenly he uses the word "empyrean". It would be okay if he just used a few obscure words, but he uses over 25 and that is just too many. Other than that the book is definitely worth adding to anyone's library of Lukan scholarship
