Overview

Today’s world is more fragmented than ever. Diversity often becomes the rallying cry for what is in truth separatism and alienation. The multiplied voices of disunity clamor with increasing volume—yet they are nothing new. It was on a fractured planet that Jesus Christ lived and ministered, and it’s on this same planet two thousand years later that he continues to unite and heal the fault lines of shattered humanity.

This is the message of Luke’s Gospel. It is a Gospel that crosses the borders between Jews and Gentiles, bringing together the unlikely and the disenfranchised under the brotherhood and lordship of one King, Christ. With carefully researched detail, Luke the historian presents an account of Jesus that’s filled with meaning and promise for the entire world. It proclaims wholeness and restoration of humanity’s broken heart through inclusion into God’s kingdom.

Exploring the links between the Bible and our own times, Darrell L. Bock shares perspectives on the Gospel of Luke that reveal its enduring relevance for our twenty-first century lives.

The tools, ideas, and insights contained in this volume will help preachers communicate God’s Word and understand the Gospel in the context of contemporary culture, and the exegetical, literary, and grammatical summaries will benefit scholars and students of the Bible. What’s more, with Logos, Scripture passages are linked to Greek and Hebrew texts, along with English translations, and the powerful search tools provide instant access to the information you need for research projects, sermon preparation, and personal study.

Praise for the Print Edition

This is the pulpit commentary for the twenty-first century.

—George K. Brushaber, president, Bethel College and Seminary

The NIV Application Commentary meets the urgent need for an exhaustive and authoritative commentary based on the New International Version. This series will soon be found in libraries and studies throughout the evangelical community.

—James Kennedy, senior minister, Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church

It is encouraging to find a commentary that is not only biblically trustworthy but also contemporary in its application. The NIV Application Commentary will prove to be a helpful tool in the pastor’s sermon preparation. I use it and recommend it.

Charles F. Stanley, pastor, First Baptist Church of Atlanta
