Item description for Gospel of Luke: A Commentary on the Greek Text (New International Greek Testament Commentary) by I. Howard Marshall...

Renowned New Testament scholar I. Howard Marshall offers this commentary, based on the UBS Greek New Testament, giving special attention to the theological message of Luke. Marshall provides information on the meaning of the Greek words used by Luke and shows which words and constructions occur frequently and are therefore characteristic of his style. This is a scholarly work.

Publishers Description
The three Epistles of John, according to I. Howard Marshall, are concerned with the fundamentals of Christian belief and life -- faith and love. The reader who grasps the message of these short but essential letters will have a sound basis in Christian doctrine. This group of Epistles, says Marshall, is also a good starting point for the study of the Gospel of John. This commentary, then, was written so that students of the Bible might not only master the content of John's Epistles but also better understand Johannine theology as a whole.The volume includes an "invitation" to general readers and an "introduction" addressed to students and specialists. Another unique feature is a rearrangement of the traditional order of the three letters: 2 John and 3 John are studied before 1 John. This structure assures that the two shorter letters are not relegated to the position of appendices but are treated as important documents of early Christianity in their own right.

Reviews - What do customers think about Gospel of Luke: A Commentary on the Greek Text (New International Greek Testament Commentary)?

Excellent work on Luke.  Mar 3, 2008
I am puzzled by the poor reviews this commentary is getting. The reviews follow the logic of giving a wrench a 2 star rating because it doesn't work with my philip screw. Not all commentaries are written for the same purpose. The title to this series makes it's purpose very clear. If you're looking for comments on the Greek Text this is for you.
If you're looking for a commentary that is easy to read and will give you sermon application material this is not for you.
Buying a book  Oct 20, 2007
I purchased a commentary of Luke. I got everything I could expect regarding quality. An easy way to get a book I don't manage to get where I live. I'm thankful. However, I got a slight damage to the corners of the cover. Probably caused by the shipping. No big deal, but can be good to know when you buy books from a Internet-company, and want perfect quality.
Disappointing, difficult to read, majors on source material  Jul 7, 2007
I was looking for a technical commentary on Luke -- like the earlier reviewer from Sweden, I prefer the in-depth works. I am also interested in the Greek language aspects of the New Testament. I have first-year+ greek but am not a professional theologian...just a keen amateur.

But like the Swedish reviewer, I too found this commentary to be a disappointment. It is difficult to read, and abounds in discussion on textual variants and Luke's sources ("Q" etc). I find myself picking through the commentary looking for the theological and linguistic nuggets -- which are there to be sure, but as said, hidden behind discussion on aspects that frankly do not interest me. I read this commentary with rising frustration, struggling to concentrate -- in fact, I got so fed up, I put the book down to write this review! I will search out alternatives.

This is undoubtedly a solid technical commentary that will please those who like lots of detail on Luke's source material, textual variants therein, where he might have got it from, and how he or Matthew may have changed elements of their material etc. etc. It also has emphasis (and useful information) on the Greek text but is somewhat short on theology. It is a difficult read and, in my view, of limited value to those wanting the "big picture" on Luke for preaching or teaching or theological study. It answers questions those interested in those subjects would probably not be asking.

Could Have Been Meatier  Feb 6, 2004
Among Evangelical New Testament Scholars, I. H. Marshall is among the best. His works continue to provide important opportunities for reflection. However, here in his commentary on Luke Marshall leaves his remarks on the text incomplete. His exposition on the greek text is good, yet for the pastor who is looking for help as Sunday draws ever more close, Marshall is less helpful. Written before narrative approaches became in vogue, Marshall's historical/ redaction approach is somewhat dated. His comments are thorough, his remarks evangelical and orthodox, his outlook on Luke, all good, however, this commentary could have been better.
Frustrating commentary  May 17, 2003
I am sorry, but I cant give this commentary a high mark. I am not unused to technical commentaries, I use the Word- and NIGTC-series alot. But I am always disappointed with this one. He puts alot of effort into synoptic questions and textvariants (which I am not interested in), but not much into what Luke really meant, the theology of the text and how it fits into the doctrinal big picture. I like technical commentaries because they analyze the meaning of important greek words, but this one does not. So now I am still lacking a good commmentary on Luke (Geldenhuys and Ellis wont do either). Thinking of getting the NICNT one.
