Reviews - What do customers think about Luke: New Hope, New Joy : 26 Studies in 2 Parts for Individuals or Groups (A Lifeguide Bible Study)?
Well written, touches on crucial points, not exhaustive Feb 20, 2007
I have been using this for a group as we do a mini-series through Luke.
I've taken five different paragraphs in Luke, representative of the five sections of Luke, and looked at this resource along with a number of others.
1) Pre Ministry of Jesus 2) Galilean Ministry of Jesus 3) On the Road to Jerusalem Ministry of Jesus 4) Conflict and death in Jerusalem 5) Resurrection and Ascension
I've been exegeting the passages in the Greek text and checking some of the best scholarly resources on Luke. I use this LifeGuide to develop application questions and feeder ideas for a small group and for the application part of my sermon.
There are 24 chapters in Luke, and 26 lessons in this book. Yet, I have found that even though the points made in this guide are excellent points, often crucial other points in a paragraph are left out.
So I recommend this LifeGuide as a supplement to your study, NOT as the main tool.
I think this is what the author had in mind, but I'm not sure.
Essentially, when comments are made, this lifeguide is very good. The answers are not always given, so if you are not sure what the right answer would be to a question, you may search for other resources. For commentaries, I recommend C. Evans on Luke (NIBC by IVPress) as an easy yet accurate commentary dealing with Luke's gospel. For deeper reading, you might want to check out the well-known D. Bock's Baker Exegetical Commentary on Luke (in two volumes).
So I will give this study guide a four star. I recommend you purchase a copy and use it as part of the mix in your Luke bible studies.
