Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5A Real Asset!October 31, 2017Jimmy ReaganLeesville, SCAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Volume 10 of the Expositors Bible Commentary (EBC), Revised Edition, covering Luke, John, and Acts, contains some of the most highly rated volumes in the beloved series. Since these commentaries were so successful, the original authors were kept with one additional collaborator on Luke. If youre familiar with this series, this volume uses the familiar, helpful format found in all the others.
Walter Liefeld was helped by David Pao in updating the commentary on Luke. Though it may not be as lengthy as some, its always been well received. The collaborative update only makes it more so. Some parts of the Introduction are not reworked while some other sections were and still others added. Theres still a fine discussion on literary genre, distinctive features, the unity of Luke and Acts, authorship, purpose (a new section explaining elements making up the theme), intended readership, literary characteristics, composition and methods of reading where various types of criticism are discussed, text, history, date, and a lengthy section on themes and theology. This is followed by a bibliography and outline before jumping into the commentary proper.
The commentary is well-written, full of insights, and since it avoids wordiness, it could qualify as an excellent choice for pastors. Ive always enjoyed using the old edition and Im glad to see the updating that even increases its value more.
You could always tell that Robert Mounce, who wrote the section on John, aimed at pastors. The Introduction, bibliography and outline make up a mere seven pages. He admits that he doesnt write for scholars, though there is a scholarly awareness throughout. I imagine some pastors may prefer this style. The commentary is in no way shallow and will provide real help to the pastor or Bible student.
Richard Longenecker, who is a highly respected scholarly writer, updates his well-received work on Acts. Again, the Introduction is not greatly reworked, but is well thought out in this in-depth approach. He covers history of criticism, historical writing and antiquity, kerygma and history in Acts, purposes in writing, sources, narrative, speeches (always an important section in Acts), structure, date, author, and a discussion of the text. This is followed by a bibliography, outline, and map. His conclusions are conservative. The commentary is well done. Ive used the old edition for several years and am happy to see this update extending the life of this quality work.
This volume covering Luke Acts is a bargain. Its one of the best volumes in a set worth having. You would be wise to secure this volume for your library without delay.
Chris5 Stars Out Of 5Luke - Acts (Used Gospel of John)December 31, 2014ChrisQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5I may have only used the Gospel of John but a close review of the other material I found it to have a lot of depth of the material. The commentary provides some excellent Greek connections and understanding to Old Testament links as well as other books inside the New Testament. This is an excellent source for research if you are seeking a better understanding of the Lord's Word. This commentary will help the growth of an individual from layman to scholar.
