The Gospel According to Luke 1:1 Through 9:50
A Bible Study
About the Book
The Bible Studies I chose to do came about in answer to the request from my first congregation out of seminary. I consistently sought to present a serious, somewhat scholarly approach to the interested among my parishioners. I would taka book in the Bible to study, assume it was written or edited to be read from the beginning, and make sense to the reader in that way. I attempted to discover for myself and my group what the book sought to convey. In this volume, the study of Luke 1:1–9:50 followed that pattern exactly.
About the Author
I am a retired minister from the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) living in the hills of the Northern Panhandle of West Virginia. During thee course of my ministry, I developed a variety of Bible Studies that, in turn, I led with a group from the congregation. The impetus for the work came from a request by Mildred Corwin during the first summer I was in my first Church after Seminary (1976). I chose to do the first study on 1 Peter, a book about which I knew almost nothing at the time. That and succeeding studies proved to be exceedingly helpful in my growth in ministry and were reasonably well attended when presented I now live quietly in my retirement with my wife of fifty years, two dogs and a variety of cats.
