About-

Luke: The Perennial Spirituality studies Luke-Acts with a view towards identifying both the spirituality that Luke taught his community and the creative interpretations in spirituality for us today. Luke is presented as a great spiritual theologian.

Dr. Doohan roots his synthesis in constant contact with scripture but also in light of the best commentators available. He deals with many of the usual questions of biblical theology but examines them from the point of view of spirituality.

This book is original insofar as it deals with the spirituality of Luke-Acts as a whole rather than spiritual themes. It also presents Luke himself as a source and challenge to faith in his life, interests, attitudes, traditions, skill in interpretation, wide interests, and cultural adaptations of the message.
