"Those who study Luke cannot stay the same," says commentator R. Kent Hughes. "He took great pains to present the gospel with maximum power under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The result is a compelling story." Especially when it is read and studied in sequence, as Hughes has done in these two volumes.
Luke's breadth-with entire sections that are recorded nowhere else in the New Testament-and its celebratory tone set it apart from the other Gospels. Luke resounds with praise to God from beginning to end. Taking readers from just prior to Jesus' birth to His ascension into heaven, this spirited report communicates the joy and the glory of the earthly life and ministry of Jesus Christ. And Pastor Hughes's insightful commentary, which unveils both Luke's approach and purpose in recording the life of Christ, and the implications of that life, adds compelling perspective to help you communicate God's Word more effectively.
Luke the historian-with his painstaking reporting-will make you certain about the truth of not only his Gospel, but the gospel. Luke the theologian--with his careful recounting of Christ's mercy and compassion-will touch you with God's love and grace. And Luke the physician--with his heart for people, especially the less privileged--will help you to love others more deeply. This may well be the only commentary you'll ever need to teach and preach the power, the celebration, and the glorious message of Luke's beloved Gospel. Part of the Preaching the Word series.
