Leads non-expert readers through the labyrinthine teachings on wealth in Luke and Acts. It argues that Lukan discipleship requires renunciation of all possessions, although the form of that renunciation depends on one’s vocation. On a planet with billions of impoverished people, the perennial questions of money and morality become more poignant with each generation. On a planet with billions of Christians, Jesus’ teachings on possessions, especially in the Gospel of Luke, are of vital importance. Yet Luke’s writings seem impossible, unreasonable, and even mutually contradictory. This vigorous and accessible book guides readers through one of the knottiest issues in biblical studies: wealth ethics in the Gospel of the Poor.
