Dr. McCartney writes: Thorough evangelical commentary that deals with theological issues in detail. Rather verbose, and tends to state the obvious too much but worth mining for its gems.

Publisher's Description

In the first of two volumes on the Gospel of Luke, Darrell L. Bock offers students of the New Testament a substantive yet highly accessible commentary. With extensive research and thoughtful chapter-by-chapter exegesis, Bock leads readers through all aspects of the third Gospel--sociological, historical, and theological. The result is a guide that clearly and meaningfully brings the first part of this important New Testament book to life for contemporary readers.

Bock's two volumes on the Gospel of Luke are the inaugural volumes of the acclaimed BECNT series. As with all BECNT volumes, Luke features the author's own translation of the Greek text, detailed interaction with the original text, and a user-friendly design. This informative, balanced commentary also includes extensive introductory notes. It admirably achieves the dual aims of the series--academic sophistication with pastoral sensitivity and accessibility--making it a useful tool for students, professors, and pastors.

This informative, balanced commentary includes extensive introductory notes and a comprehensive discussion of the text. An outstanding addition to any library.

These two volumes are also sold as a set:

"This excellent commentary on the Lucan Gospel is massive, but well written, informative, and judicious. . . . It should be a boon for pastors, priests, seminarians, and all educated general readers interested in the interpretation of the Gospels. Bock has read widely, asks the right questions, and gives a balanced answer in his interpretation of this Gospel."
--Joseph A. Fitzmyer, SJ, Catholic University of America


"Its comprehensive discussions of the text and its judicious references to contemporary scholarship ensure that both the seminary student and the mature scholar find helpful and fresh material to enhance their understanding of the Gospel."
--I. Howard Marshall, University of Aberdeen


"Each section of the text is addressed from a clearly organized series of perspectives: overview, sources and historicity, translation, exegesis and exposition, summary, and additional notes. If there is such a thing as a user-friendly two-volume commentary on a single book, this is it!"
--Craig L. Blomberg, Denver Seminary
