This second volume of Hughes’ commentary on Luke starts with chapter 11 and concludes with Christ’s Ascension in chapter 24 of the gospel. 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, the glorious message of Luke's beloved Gospel.
[Kent Hughes] never loses sight of the preacher's true task of proclaiming the Gospel...Hughes takes this task utterly seriously, never neglecting the hard exegetical and interpretative work that must underlie all responsible exposition...Yet he also understands that his own life and conviction and passion must ring through his preaching, if his words, as God's words, are to sail like arrows into his hearers' hearts.
—Mark R. Talbot, Modern Reformation
