Jesus came for all. Jesus came to lift up the lowly. In the Gospel of Luke, a first-century portrait of Jesus, we find stories of Jesus' ministry with ordinary, unexpected people. They weren't perfect. Many of them were struggling and didn't have their acts together. Some of them were outsiders or even outlaws. Whoever they were, Jesus brought the good news of God's kingdom to those who most needed to hear it. That includes you and me. In Luke: Jesus and the Outsiders, Outcasts, and Outlaws, pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton explores the life of Jesus as told in the Gospel of Luke. Through Luke's stories we find Jesus' care and compassion for all as he welcomes sinners and outcasts. As we study Luke and see Jesus' concern for those who were considered unimportant, we hear a hopeful and inspiring word for our lives today. Additional components for a six-week study include DVD/Video sessions featuring Adam Hamilton and a comprehensive Leader Guide. - A six-week study on the Gospel of Luke, with an emphasis on Luke's unique insights about Jesus. - Works beautifully as a stand-alone book, or can be combined with the DVD, Leader Guide, and worship resources to create a churchwide study. - Hear from best-selling author Adam Hamilton, in short teaching videos each week. - Perfect study for Lent.
