Reviews - What do customers think about The New Interpreter's Bible: Luke - John (Volume 9)?
Great Commentary May 4, 2008
I am a seminary student and this commentary was recommended by our Gospels professor. This is a wonderful commentary and I would highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for a quality commentary.

This is my 4th purchase in this series and I intend to keep buying as long as they are available on this site - such a savings. This is a great bible study, preaching preparation and devotional tool. I love the fact that it contains 2 translations and is not too technical, yet has enough information for you to study as deep as you wish. Every student and teacher of God's word wants this in their library.

The New Interpreter's Bible is a twelve-volume series, updating the popular Interpreter's Bible from a few decades ago. There are several key features common to all of the volumes of this series. First, each includes a two-column, double translation of the Biblical text (NIV - New International Version, and NRSV - New Revised Standard Version) arranged by topical unit or story. Then, they provide commentaries that look at the passages as a whole, as well as verse-by-verse. Third, interesting Reflection pieces that relate the passages to each other, to history, and to current concerns occur at the conclusion of each passage. Fourth, introductory articles for each book are provided that discuss transmission, historical background, cultural setting, literary concerns, and current scholarship. Finally, there are general articles about the Bible, each Testament, and various types of literature (Narrative, Gospel, Wisdom Literature, etc.) are provided to give general placement and knowledge about the text overall.
The list of contributors, editors, and consultants on the project is a veritable Who's Who of biblical and theological scholarship, representing all major traditions and schools of thought liberal and conservative. Leander Keck, of the Yale Divinity School, is the primary editor of the series.
The volumes were published individually, and can be purchased individually, which is a good thing, given that they are a bit expensive. But for any serious biblical scholar, preacher, student, or enthusiast, they are invaluable.
The ninth volume of the New Interpreter's Bible continues the New Testament, the Gospels of Luke and John in particular.
R. Alan Culpepper of the Mercer School of Theology provides the commentary on the gospel Luke. His introductory essay looks at the place of Luke among the gospels, structure, Christological emphases, and the different themes that appear in Luke. These include God's purposes of redemption, a more universal view of salvation, a prominent place for the poor, fellowship (in particular, table fellowship), the role of discipleship, and the importance of witness. It is commonly accepted that the same author wrote both Luke and Acts; however, a different commentator works on Acts in another volume of this series.
Gail R. O'Day of Candler School of Theology, Emory, looks at the gospel of John. `On even the most cursory reading of the four Gospels, it is apparent that the story of Jesus in the Gospel of John differs from that found in the other three Gospels in significant ways.' O'Day's commentary looks at this major differences by examining the theological emphases in John, issues of authorship, the use of sources and traditions in John, social and historical setting, and a look at Johannine scholarship in the present day. O'Day provides a basic bibliography for further study.
High praise goes to the general editorial staff for working with such strong authors/scholars, that their work fits together well as part of this set while retaining their individual characteristics (much like the writers of the Bible itself!).

The Best of the Best Jul 10, 2000
Most people understand that the study of Scripture is an enormous task; and that there is a considerable theological heritage to even the most benign of passages. Unfortunately, it is sometimes difficult to translate that understanding into a willingness to genuinely delve into the vast pool of material out there. In addition, it's hard to know whom to trust.
You can trust the New Interpreter's Bible series. All of the scholars who contributed are the best in their field. In addition, the layout (which includes two complete translations - the NIV and the NRSV) is conducive to both scholarly and spiritual study of the texts.
Each text is broken down into discrete units followed by general commentary on the passage, verse by vers analysis of key issues, and then an overview of study questions. The commentators address issues of authorship, historical setting, translation, theological history, and personal application. In addition, they graciously point to excellent sources for further reading.
Speaking as a pastor, it is my strong opinion that every English-speaking Christian who is serious about Bible study should own the complete set.
As a former student of Alan Culpepper's, I can personally attest to the rigorousness of his scholarship and the depth of his faith.
