Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing Co. The Gospel of Luke: New International Greek Testament Commentary [NIGTC]

Renowned New Testament scholar I. Howard Marshall offers this commentary, based on the UBS Greek New Testament, giving special attention to the theological message of Luke. Marshall provides information on the meaning of the Greek words used by Luke and shows which words and constructions occurfrequently and are therefore characteristic of his style. This is a scholarly work.

This commentary is full of helpful information: linguistic, historical, textual, theological, etc. I almost gave it a 4 because of the very cramped format that is quite different from most commentaries (including others in this series).
If you can get past the dense format of the text, and you have some basic working knowledge of Greek, you will benefit from Marshall's learned and sober exegesis of Luke's Gospel.

This commentary provides a thorough analysis of the Greek text of the Gospel of Luke and isgeared toward the serious reader of the New Testament who wants to understand the nuances and complexitiy of the Greek. Enormously learned, detailed in its textual, literary, redaction and tradition criticism, Marshall displays his customary grasp of the full rangeof contemporary scholarship and does excellentwork in putting forth the various positions held by numerous scholars; but he neverthelessis pointedly dismissive of twentieth century liberal criticism. The vast majority of his insights prove reliable, helpful, and incisive, however, in a thoroughly conventional vein. These features, together with the orderly manner in which the material is presented, render the book a valuable contribution for the understanding of the Gospel of Luke. Furthermore, if you want to find consistently conservative views on the authorship, dating and textual integrity, thenthis is the place to go.

I disagree with the reviewer of October 07, 2005, for this commentary is a must. See my review of July 21, 2001, for I still believe this to be one of the best on Luke, even surpassing the one by Bock. Buy it without any hesitation.

Don't waste your money. Filled with redundant, inconclusive and barren source criticism and little else. Apparently the product is for some narrow portion of the academic community.Jerry Reimer

Marshall does a splendid job in his commentary giving the reader a better understanding of the theology of Luke through his meticulous analysis of the Greek. Even the devotional reader who does not know any Greek will be blessed by this volume for the detailed information it contains. This volume can be ranked alongside those by Geldenhuys, Godet and Plummer. I strongly recommend the reader to purchase this volume along with Marshalls Luke: Historian and Theologian also available from CBD # 5139.
