Publisher's Description

In this first of two volumes on the Gospel According to Luke, Joseph A. Fitzmyer provides an exhaustive introduction, a definitive new translation, and extensive notes and commentary on Luke’s Gospel. Fitzmyer brings to the task his mastery of ancient and modern languages, his encyclopedic knowledge of the sources, and his intimate acquaintance with the questions and issues occasioned by the third Synoptic Gospel.

Luke’s unique literary and linguistic features, its relation to the other Gospels and the book of Acts, and its distinctive theological slant are discussed in detail by the author. The Jesus of Luke’s Gospel speaks to the Greco-Roman world of first-century Christians, giving the followers of Jesus a reason for remaining faithful. Fitzmyer’s exposition of this Gospel helps modern-day Christians hear the Good News afresh.

Author Bio

Joseph A. Fitzmyer is a Jesuit priest and Professor Emeritus at the Catholic University of America. A past president of both the Society of Biblical Literature and the Catholic Biblical Association, and coeditor of The New Jerome Biblical Commentary, Father Fitzmyer has written the Anchor Bible commentary on Romans, as well as books and numerous articles on the Dead Sea Scrolls and Qumran.

    This author is a respected conservative Catholic scholar. He has written several strong New Testament commentaries. This one is superb. In my opinion, these two volumes on Luke are by far the best in the Anchor Bible series (though I have not yet seen this author's volume on Acts). It is also one of the best works on the Gospel of Luke in any series. I highly recommend it.
