The Deep End: A Journey with the Sunday Gospels in the Year of Luke


Tríona Doherty and Jane Mellett

“Inviting, accessible and inspiring, this new book is a wonderful invitation to enter into the Gospel of Luke, with two experienced and lively guides.  Highly recommended.”
James Martin, SJ, author of Learning to Pray

‘a well-structured and very readable book…which will be a meaningful contribution for both Advent and throughout the year.’ – Transforming Ministry

‘This stimulating and thought-provoking publication deserves a place in every home or parish library.’     Intercom

‘……intelligent, thought-provoking…I recommend this book to families and parishes, to the gentle seeker and the well-read.’– Reality

There’s treasure here! I cannot recommend this double-act authorship of Triona and Jane too highly… a boon to anyone who wants to deepen their love and knowledge, not just of Luke, but of all the authors they give us a glimpse of.’ – Catholic South West

The Deep End by Tríona Doherty and Jane Mellett invites readers to come on a journey, through the story of Luke’s Gospel, to follow Jesus in the short years of his ministry. Through a series of reflections on the Sunday Gospels of Year C, it shares the Gospel’s focus on cultivating inclusiveness, compassion and a love that can turn the world upside down. In our world, threatened by ecological break-down, inequality and division, the message of Jesus as presented by Luke has much to say to us.
