Matthew A Knight wanted to share his interest in Apostle Luke as a historian to a wider audience than just a small Bible study group. It prompted him to write “The Book of Luke: Physician and Historian” (published by Xlibris NZ) to point the readers to what the scriptures actually say. For more details about the book, please visit

The book is a summary of the Book of Luke, who was one of the followers of Jesus Christ. He was an apostle, a physician and a historian. It also takes into account the birth, growth and ministry of Jesus Christ as well as the circumstances surrounding his death and resurrection. 

“I have written a summary of each of the 24 chapters of Luke. The summary I have given is intended to be read after a study of each chapter,” Knights says. “I have also set a series of five to seven questions at the back of each chapter, which are intended to promote discussion.”

Through the publication of “The Book of Luke: Physician and Historian,” Knight encourages readers to read what the Bible actually says about the Gospel of Luke to increase their knowledge about it and its relevance to their lives.
