“The Hometown Kid”

Luke 4:14-30

Early in his ministry, Jesus comes home to his childhood stomping grounds of Nazareth. At first, he’s enthusiastically received. But that warm welcome doesn’t last long. It turns out it’s hard be the Savior of people who know you, especially when you’re not the kind of Savior they expect.

This book has nothing to do with this series or the Gospel of Luke, but if you’re looking for a good book on faith and culture, I borrowed the title for this series from Mark Sayer’s book, The Road Trip that Changed the World. It’s one of the best books I’ve read on why and how our culture has become the way it has in the post-Christian, secular West.
