Among the classics of ancient Greek and Jewish literature, the story of "Luke-Acts" has few rivals. Yet we moderns miss much of the meaning of Luke's two-part drama because we read it like any other text and not as it would have been heard by ancient listeners - in public performance by a skilled storyteller. "The Way According to Luke" unlocks the big picture of Jesus' mission by attending to the repetition, patterns, and other clues of oral narrative. In this single volume, Paul Borgman lays out a holistic view of the organic unity between Luke and Acts, while demonstrating that the meaning of "Luke-Acts" is uniquely embedded in its narrative. Borgman's distinctive work makes available both the satisfying pleasure of reading the Bible as great literature and the rewarding insight gained from receiving Scripture as it was originally delivered.
