Publisher's Description

This new, authoritative commentary on the Gospel of Luke epitomizes the New Testament Library series. Combining scholarly rigor and theological insight, Carroll not only focuses on the Gospel text but also makes frequent reference to Luke's second volume, the Acts of the Apostles, to show how the two writings work together to present a full picture of the life of Christ and the work of the apostles. In addition, Carroll includes several illuminating notions about special topics in Luke's Gospel: a comparison of the birth announcements to Mary and Zechariah, an examination of the role of women, a discussion of wealth and poverty, and insights on the reign of God and the Roman Empire.

Editorial Reviews

"Largely free from entering into scholarly debates (but resting on sound scholarship) this commentary on the Gospel of Luke concentrates on expounding the theological narrative of Luke in simple language so that preachers and study group leaders will have a valuable, easily accessible tool with just the right amount of explanatory comment and at an appropriate level for their purposes." I. Howard Marshall, Emeritus, University of Aberdeen

"Here is a significant work on Luke's Gospel that combines sensitive literary interests with theological acumen. The result is exactly what we might expect from John Carroll: a reliable and thoughtful guide through Luke's story of Jesus." Joel B. Green, Fuller Theological Seminary
