Description

There are many ways to be lost in life, but the most serious is to be lost to God. Luke's Gospel introduces us to the people who met Jesus, understood his message, and experienced his saving power.

David Peterson's commentary shows us how we might have a better understanding of the significance of Jesus for ourselves, grasp hold of the salvation he offers, and be faithful disciples in our different world contexts today.
The Hodder Bible Commentary is a comprehensive 50-volume Bible commentary series. Doctrinally sensitive and globally aware, its goal is to encourage a deepened knowledge and understanding of Scripture.

I was in a Bible Study on Acts and this book was a great help in understanding the writer, Luke. Yes, I recommend it.
I received an ARC from Netgalley, but the review is my idea.

This book is aimed at those who have a certain understanding of scripture already, as a support for a sermon this is excellent and really takes you through the words and situation that Jesus is living through and that of his apostles and friends. There is a concentration of the parables and the teaching of Jesus and this is explained in good detail and linked to first century beliefs as the Christian church was slowly establishing itself, the scene for the gospel is very well set in the opening chapters and this is excellent grounding and background for the reading of the text. The explanation of words such as salvation in context each time is a real benefit and helps with the nuances of the text and unpacking some of the mystery.

I have to admit, Luke seems to be the Gospel book I've studied the least. So finding this commentary on NetGalley was great! I enjoyed using it to go through the book and seeing the insights that David Peterson gave for the stories and parables within the text.

This is the second commentary by this author and I really enjoy their writing style and how they dig deeper into the Word. I will definitely be going through the other commentaries they have.

Excellent! This has wonderful insight and the information given is based. They need to make a copy of all the books in the Canon!
