Publishers Description

The Abingdon New Testament Commentaries series offers compact, critical commentaries on the writings of the New Testament. These commentaries are written with special attention to the needs and interests of theology students, but they will also be useful for students in upper-level college or university settings, as well as for pastors and other church leaders. In addition to providing basic information about the New Testament texts and insights into their meanings, these commentaries exemplify the tasks and procedures of careful, critical exegesis.

In this volume, Robert C. Tannehill focuses on the significance of the Gospel of Luke in its final form for its original audience. Drawing on his own extensive previous work on Luke as a literary narrative as well as on recent studies of the ancient Mediterranean social world, Tannehill suggests that modern readers will find that certain features of Luke s Gospel only take on significance or deeper significance when matched with an appropriate historical and cultural context in the first century.

This commentary is designed to meet the needs of sophisticated nonspecialist students of the Bible. The evangelist s literary genius, frequently displayed in multivalent diction and imagery, finds in Robert Tannehill a faithful and sensitive interpreter. Social-scientific criticism, use of cultural anthropology, and frequent correction of renderings in the New Revised Standard Version appear without undue intrusiveness. This is a work well done. Frederick W. Danker, Christ Seminary-Seminex/ Lutheran School of Theology at Chicago "

Reviews - What do customers think about Abingdon New Testament Commentary - Luke (Abingdon New Testament Commentaries)?

Sencillo y no muy extenso, pero claro e interesante  Apr 2, 2002
Con este libro Tannehill demuestra que se puede escribir un buen comentario bíblico, de gran interes y buena calidad, sin que por ello haga falta escribir demasiadas páginas, ni perderse en tecnicismos. El de Tannehill es un comentario sencillo y claro, poco (o nada) técnico, y bien escrito, todo lo cual hace que sea un comentario de fácil y agradable lectura, al alcance de toda persona interesada y con un nivel de formación mínimo en estudios bíblicos. Pero, además, a pesar de su marcado carácter divulgativo, "Luke" de Tannehill es un comentario de calidad; el esquema que sigue a la hora de analizar las unidades y perícopas del evangelio es claro y ordenado, y la información que proporciona para comprender los textos es correcta - tanto por su cantidad como por su calidad - util, y llena de sugerencias interesantes en lo referente a la interpretación de no pocos pasajes. En este sentido Tannehill nos ofrece un comentario realmente práctico y adecuado para entender y profundizar en el mensaje del evangelio de Lucas. Todo ello lo convierte en un comentario especialmente recomendable para quienes deseen emprender un estudio serio de dicho evangelio y no puedan, o no quieran, acudir a otros comentarios mas extensos y técnicos; pero también en un comentario que, sin duda, no defraudará a los especialistas.

Sin embargo, una vez señaladas sus enormes virtudes, conviene también señalar algunos puntos en los que la obra podría ser mejorada de cara a posibles próximas ediciones: Por una parte, sería aconsejable ampliar un poco más el tratamiento de las cuestiones introductorias (autor, fecha de composición, estructura, fuentes...). Por otra parte, incluir el texto del evangelio sería una buena idea, ya que se ganaria mucho en comodidad a la hora de leer la obra. Finalmente, una revisión del precio de la obra a la baja también sería aconsejable, para que este fuere más acorde con el carácter divulgativo de la obra.
