    I really like the Tyndale series focus of balancing the academic with the devotional, and have really liked the previous ones I've read (Genesis and Exodus). This one, while helpful, isn't as good, though. There's some really good info adding background cultural context and clarifying textual criticism points. But the author focuses *so* much on textual criticism and differences between the synoptics that the book of Luke itself seems to slip out of focus.

But the author focuses *so* much on textual criticism and differences between the synoptics that the book of Luke itself seems to slip out of focus. This was frustrating for me, especially because I think the majority of these differences can be explained pretty simply by cultural differences, specifically that ancient near Eastern authors did not place nearly the importance on strict chronology that modern Western authors do. I'm still glad I have it in my library. There's useful stuff here. But on the whole, I would have liked more focus on why Luke is telling the story the way he is, and less on the harmonization issues.

    An excellent, brief, scholarly yet accessible commentary on Luke. Satisfying coverage of the important issues in succinct format. the first commentary I opened each week while preaching Luke. Leon Morris is a legend.

    This jewel of a commentary and was first written in 1974 and revised in 1988 by the venerable Leon Morris.

Leon Morris was the editor of the whole series before this latest round of revision kicked in, and understood what made a good commentary. In addition, there’s always a glowing spiritual warmth that pervades good scholarship in his writings. This volume on Luke is one of his great ones. In the Introduction, he discusses authorship, date, language, Luke as a theologian, and the relationship of Luke to the other Gospels. He is thoroughly conservative throughout. The commentary is sterling. In fact, I fail to see how any reader couldn’t benefit from this fine book. If I were reading Luke and just wanted to grab one volume to orient myself or ask a question about the passage, this is the one I would grab. I hope IVP prints this commentary as a standalone volume when it comes time for Luke to be replaced in their TOTC series. Just in case they don’t, you’d better grab a copy while you can. I received this book free from the publisher. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.

    Solid is the word that sums up this commentary. The relationship of Luke to the other Gospels is a particular highlight of the introduction and one that other books in the series defer to. Throughout the commentary, Dr. Morris tends to have a summary introduction of a longer passage and then break it down one or two verses at a time. This is a nice approach as it sets the stage for the deeper exegesis and sometimes compares the passage to its setting in the other Gospels.

He is clearly an accomplished scholar, as he often relates verses to other Jewish writings of the time which the armchair commentary might not otherwise be aware of. The author also doesn't shy away from controversies but approaches them with a solid Biblical view that most will appreciate. Well worth reading.

    Found this through the Ligonier list of best commentaries for each book of the Bible. This was a great resource for studying the book of Luke. As he works through each verse of the book, Morris brings in information from parallel passages in the other Gospels, related passages from other parts of the Bible, and ideas from other commentaries. He also bring a solid understanding of the Greek language and consideration of the manuscripts we have of Luke.

    This is not a 'critical' commentary, but Morris provides great theological and pastoral insight to Luke. I'd consider this an introductory commentary.

    I'm into it. Simple yet thorough, doesn't get bogged down in too many critical details. Enjoyable. I'm into it. Simple yet thorough, doesn't get bogged down in too many critical details. Enjoyable.

    A little gem, which the Tyndale series is good in providing. Highly recommended for an interested lay audience.
