LUKE, FIRST CENTURY CHRISTIAN

This book is good, from its introduction by Muriel Lester, London's Jane Addams, to its last chapter. To those who know Miss Lester's superb work in the East end of London for which she gave up wealth and society to share her life with factory girls and unskilled laborers, the fact that she is so enthusiastic will be a great selling point. Another will be the subtitle--First Century Christian--which should sell it to all members of the Oxford Group. To many the fact that the royalties will go to Kagawa will sell it. There is the double charm of Luke's utterly delightful personality and Graham Hunter's captivating portrayal of it. Little has been written on the physician, Paul's friend and companion, a man whom we see from these pages to have been what Mr. Hunter so aptly describes as sparkling. Possessed of a brilliant mind, a ready wit, quick sympathy, a deep appreciation of beauty, the exact precision which marks the born doctor, Luke does whatever he undertakes to the best of his ability; in the writing of his gospel and The Acts this turned out to be very well indeed. As history, biography or travel, religious or secular, your customers will not find a dull page in it, or in St. Luke's Gospel or The Acts after reading it.
