A little dated, but still a great commentary on Luke, especially for its detail.

Excellent, especially considering how old this is. I expected the more recent Hermeneia volumes on Luke to be better, but this one blows the first one away IMO. That simply may be because the first volume in the Hermeneia series contained far less detail than this volume. IDK. My plan is to read the second volume in this set and then return to Hermeneia. If I find I've been unfair, I'll come back and edit this review.

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.
