The Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament (EGGNT) closes the gap between the Greek text and the available lexical and grammatical tools, providing all the necessary information for greater understanding of the text. The series makes interpreting any given New Testament book easier, especially for those who are hard pressed for time but want to preach or teach with accuracy and authority.
Each volume begins with a brief introduction to the particular New Testament book, a basic outline, and a list of recommended commentaries. The body is devoted to paragraph-by-paragraph exegesis of the Greek text and includes homiletical helps and suggestions for further study. A comprehensive exegetical outline of the New Testament book completes each EGGNT volume.
Alan J. Thompson is lecturer in New Testament at Sydney Missionary and Bible College, Croydon, New South Wales, Australia.
"In line with the vision of Murray J. Harris, who originated the EGGNT series, Alan Thompson's fine volume on Luke succinctly provides judicious explanation of the Greek syntax, structure, grammatical options, the flow of the argument, and more. This volume will be a gold mine for students and pastors alike who are keeping up their Greek while studying this Gospel closely. Highly recommended."
D. A. Carson, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and president, The Gospel Coalition
"Luke is the longest gospel in Scripture and getting good grammatical help for his inspired work can be hard. That is no longer the case. Lukes Gospel in the Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament (EGGNT) series by Alan Thompson provides a series of careful observations about the Greek that can help you negotiate the terrain. A wonderful tool."

"This is the book on Luke that teachers of Gods Word have been waiting for. No longer is it necessary to wade through commentaries, specialist grammar books, and manuscript discussions to find syntactical and other exegetical details. It is all here, conveniently and immediately available for busy pastors, along with homiletical suggestions at the end of each section. I look forward to the publication of other texts in this series. Congratulations to Alan Thompson for his diligence, scholarship and patience in producing this very helpful resource."

"Exegesis of biblical texts must ultimately be rooted in the original languages. But often the phrasing and syntax, along with the content itself, can be perplexing. Alan Thompson has provided a wealth of helpful material for those wanting to think carefully about the Greek text of Luke. One part grammatical guide, one part commentary, this is a valuable resource for anyoneand I hope there are manystriving to understand, teach, or preach the Gospel of Luke based on the Greek text."
