    In Luke’s Gospel, encounters with Jesus result in amazement. In the first of four volumes on the Gospels, Michael Card highlights this theme and invites his readers to experience the same reaction.

    Card’s goal is to reunite the heart and mind by encouraging us to use our imagination as we study Jesus. As Christians, Card says that “we are being conformed to His image as we engage our hearts and minds, by means of the imagination, with the Word of God” (pg. 14).

    Card demonstrates how Luke’s background and experience color and shape his reconstruction of Jesus’ life and ministry. He also investigates how the themes in Luke contribute to the overall flow of the narrative.
