A new book is being released by HCU Press! “Beyond Borders with Saint Luke” by Dr. Frederick W. Danker is the initial volume in the Charles R. Coil Colloquium series published by the university press. To purchase, please contact Jamie Cox at jcox@hcu.edu or click here.

“Beyond Borders” explores the sweeping and inclusive nature of Luke’s writings by arguing that Luke directs his message to a broad-spectrum of people in many different locations. This volume examines the ways in which Luke-Acts reaches out to both the Hebrew and the Hellenist. More specifically, the book follows Luke’s placement of Jesus in the context of Israel’s history by the use of motifs significant to both audiences. Special attention is given to ancient Greek inscriptions, rhetoric, and philosophy.
