One of the best commentaries I've used while preaching through Luke for two years. The commentary is lengthy and detailed, making it difficult to consult in full on each passage, but very helpful when detail is needed to help weigh various interpretive options. Bock is very good when it comes to presenting opposing and alternative options and weighing their pros and cons.
This Luke commentary is good for resolving technical details and understanding textual arguments. Bock responds to critical scholarship and provides multiple interpretations of texts before settling on his own. I found the book helpful for teaching, but less so than Joel Green in his excellent (and paradigm shifting) Luke commentary.
