Good News to the Poor

Wealth and Poverty in Luke - Acts
  • By Walter Pilgrim
Product Description
Description: How does the proclamation of good news to the poor in Luke's Gospel relate to wealth and poverty? What does Luke-Acts mean to affluent Christians and churches in our time? In a fresh, systematic way, Professor Pilgrim surveys Old Testament tradition on the poor and describes the Jesus movement as background for understanding Luke-Acts. Endorsements: Dr. Pilgrim underscores Luke's unique interpretation of the Jesus tradition and so pinpoints Luke's concern for the right use of possessions in the Christian Life. --- J. Christiaan Beker, Princeton Seminary This well-informed book brilliantly illumines the thematic of wealth and poverty in Luke-Acts. Dr. Pilgrim challenges Christians of all denominations to probe the contemporary meaning of following Jesus, the preacher of Good News to the poor. -- Robert J. Karris, Catholic Theological Union Jesus had much to say about possessions and their use, but what bearing do His words have on our real world? Dr. Pilgrim probes St. Luke's endeavor to answer that question and at the same time alerts today's Christians to a fresh vision of intelligent discipleship in caring community. -- Frederick W. Danker, Christ Seminary-Seminex About the Contributor(s): Walter E. Pilgrim was Associate Professor of Theology and Director of Continuing Theological Education at Pacific Lutheran University, Tacoma. He received his Th.D. in New Testament from Princeton Seminary.
