With this excerpt we begin another series of presentations by Gil Bailie made in the summer of 1995. The original tape set began with a talk that was supposed to give a condensed overview of Rene Girard's anthropological perspective in which Gil used Mark Twain's 1901 essay, The United States of Lyncherdom. Gil was not satisfied with that introduction to the Gospel of Luke and so we start with the second tape in the series.
