Luke is considered one of the Four Evangelists and the Roman Catholic Church reveres him as a saint. But what was it like, in the Greco-Roman world of the late first century, to sit down to write a gospel, specifically the Gospel according to Luke? Readers can find out as author Donald R. Fletcher weaves an interesting and imaginative fiction, I, Lukas, Wrote the Book.

This revealing new book, based on contemporary biblical scholarship, centers on Lukas and his process of writing the third Gospel. In I, Lukas, Wrote the Book, readers will follow Lukas, the author, as he works devoutly at his task. The complete gospel text is given, paragraph by paragraph, in a vigorous translation, but interspersed imaginatively with Lukas’ own human contacts and vivid experiences as he composes it.

Revealing, interesting, and definitely thought-provoking, I, Lukas, Wrote the Book is a unique read that will fire up one’s interest to explore the Bible and learn more about the Gospel according to Luke. Readers are also encouraged to check out Fletcher’s other book, which invites them to step back for a broader view of the basic questions that Christians wrestle today, “View from the Playroom Floor.”
