Although Father Dolindo Ruotolo is well known for the beautiful Surrender Prayer in which Our Lord urges the soul to place its trust in Him, many more of his writings are now being translated into English for the first time, almost fifty years after his death in 1970: a wealth of theology, devotion, and practical spirituality previously only available in his native Italian. This new two-volume book, The Sacred Scripture: The Gospel According to Luke, reveals the depth and breadth of his mind in a chapter-by-chapter commentary on the Holy Gospel.

Through the eyes of this holy priest, the angel's joyful cry, Peace on earth! is set against the sufferings of a modern world thirsting for peace yet mired in violence. Luke's Gospel, which Father Dolindo describes as a Gospel of Mercy, is full of subtle weavings of story and symbol, and he plumbs their depths to reveal the message of God's mercy and love in each one.

It will provide inspiration for many meditations on the lives of Our Lord and His Mother, filling the soul with delight in the gentle humanity of Jesus: a portrait of the Incarnate Word by a man who loved Him above all things.
