They are books about other books, so they are woven into a fabric of other texts and the readings of texts.

Here we benefit from the author’s recognized gifts as biblical exegete: literary creativity and theological insight, appreciation of Scripture’s historical grounding and history of interpretation, admirable clarity and level-headedness. They are books about other books, so they are woven into a fabric of other texts and the readings of texts.

The Gospel of Luke narrates the life of Jesus from the nativity stories, to Jesus’ baptism and temptation, ministry in Galilee, journey to and teaching in Jerusalem, and finally his death and resurrection.

Written by caring and accomplished scholars with all students of Scripture in mind, this innovative series makes quality Bible study more accessible. Pastors, professors and students of Scripture are discovering that this commentary provides wonderful new tools for enhancing interpretation: informative sidebars, a wealth of fine art visuals, and a searchable CD containing the digital version of the entire work. The Gospel of Luke narrates the life of Jesus from the nativity stories, to Jesus' baptism and temptation, ministry in Galilee, journey to and teaching in Jerusalem, and finally his death and resurrection. In his engaging guide to Luke's account, Richard Vinson accompanies readers on their own compelling journey-a journey through the life of Christ as seen through the lenses of critical scholarship and contemporary culture. As a result, we cannot turn away from Luke's primary messages: the good news of the Kingdom of God and Jesus' emphatic teachings on wealth and poverty, repentance and forgiveness, and the role of women in Jesus' ministry.

This was 1 of 8 commentaries we purchased for our Bible study on Luke. For the most part it is simply a better commentary than the others.

One of the key theological points Luke is trying to make (indeed the Bible) is that The Kingdom of God is inverted to kingdoms of this world. It is a message few scholars engage, especially American scholars. This is an area this is an area that Richard Vinson has no problem discussing and for that we are very grateful.

Commentary series are hit or miss. But Vinson's work on Luke has peeked our interest in Smyth & Helwys and we'll be purchasing more in the in the future to see if any other books hold gems like their Luke commentary!

Thank you!

Excellent format. Great scholarship. Very enlightening research. The additional helps from historical writings are extremely well done. Also, the data disc was a welcomed bonus.

When I preached through parts of Luke this past fall, one of my favorite commentaries to consult–and the one that always felt the freshest–was Richard Vinson’s Luke.

What stands out to me most about the commentary is that it’s not only accessible but creative in its literary read of Scripture. Vinson knows Luke and its background well; he also knows modern history, culture, literature, and art in a way that allows him to explain the biblical text in a really fresh and engaging way. His primary audience is “pastors and other Bible teachers.”

The introduction is a concise 20-some pages, covering essentials like authorship, dating, sources, structure, and themes found in Luke. (This for me was the highlight of his introduction, as he discussed gospel sources, yet with his target audience in view–”So I will content myself with the occasional ‘if Q really exists’ and worry about more important issues.”)

There are times when reading the commentary is like reading a sermon–a good sermon.

Exegesis in the commentary is passage-by-passage, rather than verse-by-verse. There’s not always a lot of technical detail, but I still felt like Vinson did justice to whatever passage was under consideration. Comparisons to other Gospel accounts, as well as the occasional word studies for important words (with reference to Greek), make this as good a starting point as any.

And yet what commentary will also reference Flannery O’Connor, Hank Williams, and Wendell Berry’s Manifesto: The Mad Farmer Liberation Front? Vinson’s creativity and honesty as he seeks to make sense of a text are refreshing, and often set me at ease when facing the prospect of preaching on a challenging passage.

The commentary comes with a CD-ROM that has a pdf of the entire book, with Table of Contents and easy navigation (as pdfs go). You can keyword search it and make annotations. This is a step in the direction of my dream that one could own both print and digital with one purchase. And the print edition is quite nicely constructed, too–sewn binding and all (so it lays flat), which seems to be increasingly rare these days.

I had not heard of this series until recently, but for any book I preach out of (there are both OT and NT volumes), I’m going to try to get a hold of the corresponding Smyth & Helwys volume from here on out.
