Here's what people are saying about
By David Schnasa Jacobsen and GŁnter Wasserberg

"Astute but non-technical, this inventive product of joint authorship confronts readers with provocative challenges in interpreting Jesus and the Jewish people in Luke-Acts. It is a stimulating case of narrative exegesis that is engaged with post-Holocaust sensitivities and of post-Holocaust preaching that is engaged with biblical narrative. From candid positions of personal grief and personal faith, the authors boldly question Lukan perspectives on Jewish people, and strive to provide ways of mediating new encounters with the risen Christ that will change hearts."

-Robert L. Brawley
Albert G. McGraw Professor of New Testament
McCormick Theological Seminary


"Here's a 'must have' book for ministers who preach Luke/Acts. The authors, an exegete and a homiletician, have written a smart, remarkably insightful volume, guaranteed to transform our understanding of Luke's gospel message. Edgy scholarship and lively homiletic guidance -- a good book!

-David G. Buttrick
Drucilla Moore Buffington Professor of Homiletics and Liturgics, Emeritus
The Divinity School, Vanderbilt University


"This book presents a provocative interpretation of Luke-Acts as a 'grief document,' marked by the failure of the mission to Jews. By posing sharp questions and making helpful suggestions, it enables Christian preachers to think more deeply about their task.

-Dr. Robert Tannehill
Professor of New Testament
Methodist Theological School in Ohio
