I really appreciated the lucid and pithy writing contained in this commentary on Luke. Writing from the Roman Catholic tradition, Fitzmyer is clearly a scholar of top class. It was a refreshing read as the author is keen to demonstrate his own views on areas of dispute. This cannot always be said of other writers. The commentary is technical but I found it highly accessible-again, not a common combination! Clearly a man of faith, I found Fitzmyer a warm read and greatly helpful.

I read this two volume commentary for a class entitled "The Gospel of Luke" during the first semester of 1993/94 at Loyola University Chicago. It was my last class there and my second class with the Institute of Pastoral Studies, the idea being to eventually become an adjunct faculty member in the program to supplement my administrative work with the university.
For those looking to discover a peculiarly Lukan theology, Fitzmyer's Introduction is masterful. This is a focused yet thorough commentary without being pedantic. I can't wait to read the second volume!
