Michael F. Bird
What do the books of Luke and Acts teach us about God, Jesus, and the early church? How do these two books relate to each other? And what do they mean for us today?
In this accessible and compelling introduction, Michael Bird draws us into the wide-ranging narrative of Luke-Acts to discover how Luke frames the life of Jesus and of the first disciples who set out from Jerusalem to “the ends of the earth” proclaiming the Good News. Bird shows us how these two books, when read together, tell a cohesive narrative about Jesus, the Church, and the mission of God—with implications for the whole of our lives today. Situating both books in their historical and literary context, Bird moves through an exploration of their central theological themes and culminates with consideration of the books’ relevance for contemporary social issues.
Naim Stifan Ateek
( Cascade Books )
The Reverend Canon Naim Ateek, a Palestinian and an Episcopal priest, writes of the Palestinians’ dispossession of their land during his lifetime leading Canon Ateek to embrace a groundbreaking theology of liberation for his people. Told in his own words, Canon Ateek weaves his personal story within the context of ever-increasing injustices endured by the Palestinian people under Israeli rule and occupation. His story is a gift to all those who wish to understand what justice requires in the seventy-five years since the Nakba (catastrophe) that befell the Palestinian people in 1948 in the creation of the State of Israel, and the enduring occupation that has been imposed on them since 1967.
