  • Product Description

Working with the texts' socio-historical and literary contexts, this book argues that Luke is influenced by the imperial setting of his day to provide the images that he does in the parables and the ?empire insensitive' language that he employs in writing the parables and his gospel. Further, and working with the Kenyan context and using the postcolonial elements of empire mimicry and hybridity, this book argues that Luke's images and language are taken up by the upper and ruling class to ?re-member' the empire by marginalizing the poor hence widening the gap between the rich and the poor to insurmountable levels.
