Jensen's research and insights provide a stimulating resource on Luke's Gospel. 'Homiletical Directions' at the end of each chapter help readers find a focus and locate themes for preaching the text. Jensen points to the ways in which the biblical writers lock their stories together with other stories in order to give fuller meaning to their narratives. He covers material that is not included in the assigned lectionary texts and discusses the interrelatedness of Luke's stories. These 'narrative analogies' imply that preaching on Luke's Gospel may at times be a retelling of two or more Lukean stories.
