"This book has its source in the direct suggestion that comes from a previous notable work. In 1940, William Temple, Archbishop of York and afterward Archbishop of Canterbury, published his Readings in St. John's Gospel. In the first paragraph of that work he wrote:

This book is not a systematic commentary or exposition; nor is it intended for scholars or theologians-though whatever value it has for souls on pilgrimage may be as real for them as for others. Again, it is not a series of devotional meditations, though it contains some of these. It has no distinctive and consistent character. But it is an attempt to share with any who read it what I find to be my own thoughts as I read the profoundest of all writings...." - Introduction from The Compassionate Christ: Reflections from the Gospel of Luke
