Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel According to Luke: An Introduction and Commentary (Tyndale New Testament Commentaries)?
A good solid introductory level commentary Mar 24, 2006
To appreciate this commentary, and we should, one needs to understand the purpose in writing it. Tyndale designed this series of commentaries to be a solid introductory level commentary to encourage and enlighten the average layperson as they begin to truly study the Bible as opposed to just reading it.
This commentary more than adequately fills the role it was designed to. I am using it with a men's discipleship group I lead as an adjunct to the series I am preaching in the church I pastor. The men have continually been positively motivated and encouraged by Dr. Morris' scholarship.
I would recommend this commentary for those who are interested in becoming students of God's word. It is an excellent introductory commmentary to aid in your study.

A standard TNTC work. Dec 18, 1999
Dr Morris, once again delivers what we have come to expect from the TNTC series, namely not that much. While this work is a good introductory commentary for the first time Luke reader, serious readers need apply elsewhere.
Morris sometimes skips over whole textual and or theological discussions with a wave of a hand.
Please, first look in your used book section for this one. For a more comprehensive study on Luke, get D.L Bock in the BECNT series, or J.A Fitymer in the Anchor Bible series.

Leon Morris just went to be with the Lord. I thank God that we have his books so that he still speaks, even though he is gone. This commentary on Luke is like all of Morris' work in that he interprets the scripture well, and he is easy to follow.
This is not one of his major opuses, it is a hand held paperback commentary. But Morris has a good understanding of Luke's gospel, and it will come in handy for the Sunday school teacher and the pulpit preacher. I still use it to this day. I rarely ever preach from the NT without seeing what Dr. Morris has written on the subject.
This is quality, inexpensive scholarship. Pick this up and add it to your library, or buy a copy for your church.
