Do you struggle to connect with the stories of the bible? Perhaps finding the ancient culture too foreign to relate with, or the biblical characters to distant to empathize with. Do you feel like you are simply going through the motions, and need to be challenged in your faith? Perhaps spiritual growth has become an intellectual pursuit as opposed to a relational journey. Would you like something different? The short stories found in this book are built upon various stories found in Luke's gospel. They are written in a way to capture your imagination and conclude with thought provoking questions to help you have an encounter with the King. The 11 short stories include: "Focusing on our Favor" - The Birth of Jesus Foretold (Luke 1:26-38) "Returning to Normalcy" - Angels Announce Christ's Birth to Shepherds (Luke 2:8-20) "Following in Trust" - The Calling of the 12 Disciples (Luke 6:12-16) "Believing Rightly" - Healing the Centurion's Servant (Luke 7:1-10) "Seeing the Unbelievable" - Raising the Widow's Son (Luke 7:11-17) "Who Are You Working For?" - Mary and Martha (Luke 10:38-42) "Who Deserves Grace?" - Healing the 10 Lepers (Luke 17:11-19) "Carry the Cross" - Simon Carries Jesus' Cross (Luke 23:26-31) "Accepting Forgiveness" - The Crucifixion and Death of Jesus (Luke 23:44-49) "Choosing Courage" - The Women Find an Empty Tomb (Luke 24:1-12) "The Source of Our Strength" - (Luke 24:36-49)
