At times, seeing the gospel of Luke and the stories of Peter, Paul and the early church transported to 20th century America creates a profound new perspective on those key figures and how their words and actions are relevant regardless of setting.

It is interesting, particularly, to see the Pharisees transformed into their modern-day equivalent, the WAPs (white American Protestants), the "good church-going folks" who condemn Christ for preaching what they find socially unpalatable.
