Endorsements

“Any good devotional book should do two things: drive us to the Scriptures, and help us see Christ and our need for him more clearly. David Murray’s Luke: Stories of Mission and Mercy does just that. Each day’s reflection will help individuals, families, and small groups see Christ more clearly in the Gospel of Luke as they read the text and see Jesus more and more in all the Scriptures. May the Lord use it to encourage many to read and understand Luke’s Gospel in a deeper way.”
Chris Bruno, Global Partner for Hawaii and the Pacific Islands, Training Leaders International; Pastor, Kailua Baptist Church; author, The Whole Story of the Bible in 16 Verses

“In fifty daily five-minute devotionals, David Murray manages to pack the transforming power of the gospel into bite-sized pieces that can change readers’ lives. If you are ready to get to know God and yourself better on a simple, concise, but profound journey through the story of Jesus in Luke, this resource is going to be an enormous blessing to you! David doesn’t shy away from tougher subjects like death and temptation, and he handles them so pastorally that you can’t help but walk away encouraged.”
