Diary of a Disciple

A contemporary retelling of Luke's Gospel

Gemma Willis


“Good Evening, and a very warm welcome to my marvellous story”

Investigating the amazing miracles happening around a man from the country called Jesus, the brainy, nerdy and curious Dr Luke trains his eye to find out just what’s happening.

Part detective diary, part doctor’s diary, all whilst being a Disciple’s diary.

To discover the truth, Dr Luke records everything.

All the amazing events and exciting stories are in his Diary. Beginning with Elizabeth and Zechariah’s miracle child to Jesus’ resurrection, Luke uses doodles and drawings to tell his story of finding out who Jesus is, and why it matters more than anything else.

Bringing the life of Jesus into a new retelling for ages 8–11, Diary of a Disciple makes Luke’s Gospel accessible with a fresh new voice in the quirky and brainy Dr Luke.

Diary of a Disciple (Hardback)

This is a really good book for kids. My son read this in a couple of days and really enjoyed it. He found it really funny and enjoyable as well as learning things from it. Its written in a 'Tom Gates' style which is really popular at the moment and my son (8) loved it.

I was a bit skeptical at first for various reasons. I have been blown away by how engaging this book is for 7-10 year olds. I gave a copy to all the 7-10 year olds in our Sunday School. Out of the dozen families more than half have said that their kids loved it (my family included - and my son hates reading!) It's great when my 8 year old son asks me questions and shares the humour from the book. It's not a Bible but a faithful retelling of Luke's gospel. It reads well, feels good and looks good. Everything about it says: "Read me!"

Brilliant! My son (aged 8) has been reading diary of a wimpy kid but now he's reading diary of a disciple avidly. He says, 'best book ever'. This is Luke's gospel in the style of diary of a wimpy kid.
