While several recent studies have suggested that the Gospel of Luke recommends generous almsgiving or a relatively benign sharing ethic that mimics existing redistibutive measures in early Roman Palestine, this book argues that a much more subversive reading of the Gospel's wealth and possessions traditions is defensible.
