The Liberating Mission of Jesus
The Message of the Gospel of Luke
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"I am deeply grateful for Dario Lopez Rodriguez's fantastic work on the liberating mission of Jesus, for he has provided us with a crucial and persuasive biblical call to work for peace, justice, empowerment, and liberation. I will continue to require it in my classes and I highly recommend it."
Professor of Christian Ethics & Public Policy, Palmer Theological Seminary, Eastern University
Editor of Pentecostals and Peacemaking(2009) and Christ at the Checkpoint (2012)
"I have used this book as a study text in my teaching in the Americas and Europe, especially in courses dedicated to the foundations and understanding of Christian mission in the twenty-first century. An important reference point for men and women that approach the text of Luke today is that the author of this work is not a classroom academic, but a Pentecostal pastor that lives on the frontiers of service to the poor. This second edition has been enriched with new chapters, and at various points the author has corrected and refined his treatment of the biblical text, also updating references to bibliographical sources. All of this will be of great help to scholars who wish to deepen their understanding of the Third Gospel, beginning with the missiological and pastoral fundamentals that Dr. Lopez offers us with such clarity."
