Item description for Commentary-Luke V2 (Preaching The Word) by R. Kent Hughes...
Overview Part of the critically acclaimed "Preaching the Word" commentary series.
Luke's carefully researched and "orderly account" of the life of Christ is one of the finest pieces of historical writing in all of ancient literature. Yet it also accomplishes its divinely appointed--and more personal--purpose: that people of every century "may know the truth."
"Those who study Luke cannot stay the same," says commentator R. Kent Hughes. "He took great pains to present the gospel with maximum power under the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The result is a compelling story." Especially when it is read and studied in sequence, as Hughes has done in these two volumes.
Luke's breadth--with entire sections that are recorded nowhere else in the New Testament--and its celebratory tone set it apart from the other Gospels. Luke resounds with praise to God from beginning to end. Taking readers from just prior to Jesus' birth to His ascension into heaven, this spirited report communicates the joy and the glory of the earthly life and ministry of Jesus Christ. And Pastor Hughes's insightful commentary, which unveils both Luke's approach and purpose in recording the life of Christ, and the implications of that life, adds compelling perspective to help you communicate God's Word more effectively.
Luke the historian--with his painstaking reporting--will make you certain about the truth of not only his Gospel, but the gospel. Luke the theologian--with his careful recounting of Christ's mercy and compassion--will touch you with God's love and grace. And Luke the physician--with his heart for people, especially the less privileged--will help you to love others more deeply. This may well be the only commentary you'll ever need to teach and preach the power, the celebration, the glorious message of Luke's beloved Gospel. Part of the Preaching the Word series.

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Luke V2 (Preaching The Word)?
An exciting, practical treatment of Luke's Gospel Aug 17, 2001
So many Bible commentaries are dry, dull and difficult. You may find the information you're looking for, but you have to wade through an enormous amount of theological verbiage just to find the one statement or thought that could help you to understand a verse.
This commentary (and the other volumes in this series, for that matter) is refreshingly different. R. Kent Hughes has a wonderful ability of teaching the Bible in a practical way that in no way waters down the passage, and this comes through in nearly every page of this book. Whether you're a pastor looking for sermon help, or you're a Bible study leader looking for fresh insights, or a Sunday school teaching looking for stimulating thoughts, this is the book (and series) for you. I have heard it said that R. Kent Hughes' commentaries on the books of the Bible is to the modern day church what Matthew Henry and Barclay's commentaries were to previous generations, and I agree. In fact, I think they are better.
