Praise for the Print Edition

With its exciting, theologically vibrant range of reference across 20 centuries of interpretation, this is a terrific contribution . . . Jeffrey brings the evangelist to life for us on a brilliant exegetical and theological tour of attentive Gospel interpretation down the ages.

Markus Bockmuehl, professor, Keble College, University of Oxford

If there are any lingering doubts about the wisdom of Brazos Press publishing a series of theological commentaries on the books of the Bible, David Lyle Jeffrey’s commentary on Luke will lay those doubts to rest. Jeffrey is at home in modern critical literature, he knows the church fathers and medieval interpreters, and he makes good use of the Reformers, most notably Calvin. He brightens the discussion with literary allusions and poems. He draws illuminating parallels from unexpected places in the scriptures. But what makes this commentary a delight to read is that Jeffrey is a close reader of the Gospel of Luke and on every page displays a serious effort to understand the sacred text in light of the church’s faith. A superb addition to the series.
