Vigorous readings of the gospels do not just happen: they are poked and prodded into life. Provoking the Gospel of Luke, the second book in the Provoking the Gospel storytelling commentary series, spurs efforts to provoke pastoral leaders and religious educators to look for new and lively readings of Luke, and challenges them to experiment with interpretive tools such as embodied ensemble exploration.
The book is composed of three chapters, plus an index that identifies the location of each text in the cycle established by the Revised Common Lectionary, and an appendix that contains the author's provocative translation of the Gospel of Luke. It also includes a companion DVD with illustrations of the process of script analysis and the performance that lies behind this way of storytelling.
