The recent resurgence of scholarship on Luke's Gospel is due, in part, to this Gospel's special appeal for an age in which questions of economic justice, peace, and the prophetic role of the Churches questions all important in Luke are so urgent.

Father Senior's exegesis yields a strong sense of what Luke intended to communicate to his readers and, to some degree, what may have been the circumstances that shaped his message. He reveals the Luke who presents Jesus as a champion of the poor and marginalized, whose message of justice is proclaimed with a sharp prophetic edge.

Donald Senior, CP, serves as editor of The Bible Today and is president emeritus of Catholic Theological Union in Chicago, where he is also professor of New Testament studies. He received his doctoral degree from the University of Louvain in Belgium and is the author of numerous books and articles on the New Testament. IN the fall of 2001 he was appointed to the Pontifical Biblical Commission by Pope John Paul II and reappointed in 2006 by Pope Benedict XVI.
