About the book.

Jesus came to lift up the lowly.  Throughout his ministry to his final days on the road to the cross, we find stories of his relationships with ordinary, flawed, and unexpected people.  He met, dined, and traveled with people who were not perfect.  Many of them were struggling, some were outsiders or even outlaws.  Whoever they were, from those he healed to the outlaws with him at his crucifixion, Jesus brought the good news of God’s kingdom to those who most needed to hear it.

In Luke: Jesus and the Outsiders, Outcasts, and Outlaws, pastor and bestselling author Adam Hamilton explores the life, teachings, death, and resurrection of Jesus as told in the Gospel of Luke.  Through Luke’s stories we find Jesus’ care and compassion for all as he welcomes sinners and outcasts.  As we study Luke and see Jesus’ concern for those who were considered unimportant, we hear a hopeful and inspiring word for our lives today.
