That was the question that Luke is determined to answera and answer it, he will!

Luke, a local physician and beloved townsman, is drawn into the growing movement of first century Christians in Antioch by an unpleasant first encounter with a disagreeable and xenophobic Saul of Tarsus. Through a childhood friend, Luke learned the news of what had happened to a young rabbi from Nazareth, thus becoming the catalyst for Lukes journey of faith. After completing his medical education at the Alexandrian School of Medicine, Lukes second encounter with Saul, now calling himself Paul, will change his life forever.

As physician to the Apostle who is called by the Lord to take the Gospel to the Gentiles, Luke begins to discover the answer to his troubling question, Did Jesus die only for the Jews? Encouraged by Jesuss mother to write down Jesuss story, Luke journeys with the missionaries to the cities of Asia Minor and then Greece itself.

It is the martyrdom of his old friend that convinces Luke that the Lord was calling him to take his place. With his son now studying in Alexandria like his father before him, Luke carries the good news into the one province Paul had not been able to go, and settles down in the town of Bithniya as physician and bishop, where his faith will be put to the ultimate test. The Pen and the Scalpel tells the story of one of the most prolific writers of the New Testament. In this unforgettable journey, author William Collins reveals Lukes passion and determination to journey with Paul and ultimately discover the truth of Jesuss teachings.
