Luke was a historian and a physician. As the author of the Gospel of Luke, he 
"revealed his compassionate heart not only in what and who he wrote about but also in how he wrote about them. Luke's Gospel contains more stories about children than any of the other gospels, and he captures the heart cries of anguished parents." "Luke's Gospel abounds with stories of losers and outcasts." His Gospel "mentions thirteen women that none of the other Gospel writers mention..." 
(from Fear Not: Devotionals for Times like These)

If you want an edifying read, sometime go through and read all the "red letter words" (words of Jesus) in the book of Luke and be in awe of Jesus once again.

Here are some of my favorite verses from the book of Luke: 

"Then He spoke a parable to them, that men always ought to pray and not lose heart." Luke 18:1

"The things which are impossible with men are possible with God." Luke 18:27

"For the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost." Luke 19:10 

"I have not come to call the righteous but sinners to repentance." Luke 5:22 

"For one's life does not consist in the abundance of the things he possesses." Luke 12:12

"Arise, go your way. Your faith has made you well." Luke 17:19 

"He called His twelve disciples together and gave them power and authority over all demons and to cure diseases." Luke 9:1

"And they were all amazed at the majesty of God." Luke 9:43 -AMEN!
