Every Christmas Eve, our family reads the story of the birth of Christ from Luke chapter 2. Many Christian families do. For this reason, it is likely one of the most read books of the Bible. And yet, how much do we actually know about Luke, about his service to our Lord, and about Luke's contributions to the Biblical account of Jesus' coming, His works, His death, and His resurrection?
Dr. Wiersbe's Be Compassionate is a detailed look at the first thirteen chapters of Luke through which he encourages the reader to understand and experience Jesus' compassion and to learn to be compassionate to others.
Dr. Wiersbe's book provides detailed information on the history and customs of the time, background on the characters in the chapters, and commentary on the language and its importance to the meaning of the passages. It makes for fascinatingreading. For an informative Bible Study, read the suggested verses from the Bible and then delve into the commentary. The questions for personal reflection or group discussion at the end of each chapter help to solidify the reader's understanding of the Biblical passages in light of the commentary and are a useful addition to the book and to the reader's study of the book of Luke.
