Theophilos

O’Brien imagines who St. Luke’s Theophilos was in this brilliant work of fiction . . .

Ignatius Press, 2010. 448 pages, $24.95 hardcover

Luke addressed his Gospel and the Acts of the Apostles to Theophilos. Scripture scholars don’t know who he was, but O’Brien’s fictional Theophilos is Luke’s skeptical but beloved adoptive father. Theophilos is concerned about Luke’s involvement with Jesus of Nazareth, a man who has caused controversy throughout the Roman Empire. Theophilos is well-suited to speak to our age in which seeing cannot be the basis for faith, but rather hearing the witness of those who have been touched by God.
