Calling the Gospel of Luke the "Gospel within the Gospel," Norval Geldenhuys brings us a classic commentary on the book of Luke from the New International Commentary on the New Testament. The Gospel of Luke was written "to provide earnest students of the New Testament with an exposition that is thorough and abreast of modern scholarship and at the same time loyal to Scripture as the infallable Word of God." The commentary—the original New International Commentary on the New Testament volume on Luke, later replaced by Joel B. Green's volume—walks verse-by-verse through Luke's gospel, and is a great tool for pastors. Laity too will find Geldenhuys' words insightful, encouraging, and relevant.

The Gospel of Luke was originally a part of the New International Commentary on the Old and New Testament series!
“The centurion of Capernaum strikingly revealed the two indispensable requirements for receiving real blessing: he was deeply humble and he had a whole-hearted faith in Christ. Today this is still the only way to receive the divine blessings—we must realise our own utter unworthiness, but at the same time cherish a steadfast faith in Christ Jesus, our Lord.” (Page 220)
“To sum up, the main theme taught by the Scriptures is that the Messiah had to suffer, that He should rise again on the third day, and that the ultimate purpose of all this was that the glad tidings of repentance and forgiveness of sin should be proclaimed in His Name, on the ground of His work of redemption and through His saving power.” (Page 641)
“From this it is clear that demon-possession is a phenomenon which occurred almost exclusively, but then to be sure on an amazing scale, during Jesus’ appearance on earth and to a lesser extent during the activity of the apostles.” (Page 174)
“As there were so many priests, it was not allowed that a priest should burn incense more than once in his lifetime” (Page 62)
“But Jesus calls us to a life of worship as well as practical service.” (Page 317)
I commend this work to Bible students who appreciate a commentary which calls for time and thought.
