Overview Apart from the apostle Paul, Luke is arguably the most influential force in the canon of the New Testament. His Gospel and Acts occupy almost a third of the New Testament. Marshall provides us with a lucid guide to Luke's theology of salvation as it is unfurled in Gospel narrative, but always with an eye on its ongoing development in his companion work, the Acts of the Apostles.
Publishers Description Apart from the apostle Paul, Luke is arguably the most influential force in the canon of the New Testament. His Gospel and Acts occupy almost a third of the New Testament, and together their narrative voice carries us over a span of more than sixty years, from the birth of Jesus to the imprisonment of Paul in Rome. It is difficult to imagine our understanding of the New Testament period without Luke's writings. For this reason, the question of Luke's historical reliability has been repeatedly investigated. In this study Howard Marshall affirms Luke's trustworthiness as a historian. But Luke is more than a historian. He is also a theologian who finds his interpretive key in the great theme of salvation. Marshall provides us with a lucid guide to Luke's theology of salvation as it is unfurled in Gospel narrative, but always with a eye on its ongoing development in the companion work, the Acts of the Apostles. A postscript assesses the course of Lukan studies during the decade of 1979-1988.

Reviews - What do customers think about Luke: Historian & Theologian (Gospel Profiles, 3)?
Provides Helpful Background for Understanding Luke's Gospel Feb 6, 2004
Helpful book, well written, thorough, but now somewhat dated. However, for the patient reader, Marshall's remarks provide opportunites for reflection and thought. Good introduction to his commentary on the greek text of Luke's Gospel. For the pastor, helpful resource to have on one's bookshelf.
Excellent resource; be sure you know what you're getting Aug 14, 2000
This book is a very detailed, verse-by-verse commentary on the Gospel of Luke (based on the NRSV translation). Used as an aid to help understand the meaning of phrases, words, references, etc., it is a good resource-- but be wary of limiting your understanding of the passage to the way it is explained in this book. This book is probably most appropriate for ministers or as a useful reference for someone who reads the Bible from a faith perspective.
