Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Needed Commentary  Oct 15, 2007
I'm preaching a series on Luke, and purchased this commentary after finding the other "must-haves" helpful, but repeatedly coming up short. Yes, Marshall is amazingly dense and heady. Yes, Fitzmyer is typically attentive to detail. Yes, Nolland has a lot to say. But like most reviewers of such books, as a pastor with only so much time, I'm looking for a book that will answer/help me think through my questions - or more importantly, the questions of my congregation.
Bock has written three commentaries on Luke. The massive (2,000+ pages!) BECNT volume is probably the "must-have" of the three (though his NIVAC is also very good), and the best commentary (at least for preaching) currently available on Luke. He deals with technical issues with great clarity, and offers some application thoughts (rare for a more technical series).
While we might still be waiting for that single commentary that is both deep and practical (Bruner's "Christbook/Churchbook" on Matthew comes to mind), in the meantime, a combination of Bock's BECNT and NIVAC will more than suffice.
Far Outshines the NIGTC by Marshall  Apr 2, 2007
I am a pastor who uses commentaries in my sermon prep. I've found that Bock's stuff on Luke, and this volume in particular, as well as it's twin, encourage me with practical and technical information that is actually useful. For example, in the passage I just did for Palm Sunday, Bock does a great job of providing many worthwhile nuggets on Luke 19:28-40. I found some commentators wasting lots of space on issues like 'which part of the story was really spoken by Jesus' and things like that which are completely worthless for preaching...

Bock avoids all that stuff and goes to the meat of the issues at hand. For example, on the cross references he sometimes provides great insights as in when discussing Bethphage, one of the little towns Jesus was near when he sent his disciples to get the colt for him to ride on...that Bock points ut the Aramaic meaning of Bethphage, which was 'House of unripe figs'. The cross reference in the Greek text to the pronouncement of judgment on the fig tree earlier in Luke was augmented by this information. The clear allusion then is to the judgment pronounced on the Jews for being an unripe fig tree by Jesus as he passes through 'the house of unripe figs' just before his Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem which ends up with his grief over Jerusalem's judgment for rejecting his kingship.
Bock has a lot of detail like this that I have not found as much of in most commentaries.

He also cued me in on the angaria concept without too much information so that I could see crucial points without wasting a lot of time on minutia. (Angaria was the custom of demanding citizens provide transportation...which may relate to the provision of the colt for Jesus triumphal entry).

This commentary is a wealth of very helpful information that is based on solid exegesis. His information provided also blends well with the sermon crafting process for those who are careful to use tried and true hermeneutical principles.

I have found that these two Luke commentaries (Baker Exegetical) are more helpful to me than even my NICNT on Luke...and I love that one as well.

A whole hearted recommendation here.
One of the best in the NIV Application series  Jan 12, 2007
I own Darrell Bock's 2-volume work on Luke with the Baker Exegetical Series. I found this commentary to be even more helpful. Bock displays an in-depth understanding of the Gospel of Luke. Not only does he present a sound exposition of the message of Luke, but he gives the reader excellent application for today. I own many of the volumes in the NIV Application Commentary. This one is one of the best in the series. You won't be disappointed with this commentary on Luke.
Excellent pratical pastoral tool  Mar 24, 2006
This commentary provides the Pastor with yet another excellent pratical tool in helping to demonstrate the practicality of God's word to His people and the world around them. I love the series and have used it for years. This member of the collection continues the tradition of excellence established by the volumes previously published. I highly recommend it.
Good entry-level commentary  Dec 31, 2004
From what I hear, Darrell Bock's Baker commentary on Luke is an outstanding resource. Bock's knowledge of Luke-Acts shines here as well, along with his pastoral heart. In the theme of the IVP and NIV Application Commentary series, this focuses on application, though not as much as the NIVAC. Bock does a good job handling the individual pericopes of the gospel, with a strength on tracing major themes in Luke-Acts and showing the flow behind Luke's ordering of each event vs. the other Gospels. Although the NIV is used, Bock doesn't hesitate to use the NRSV or a literal rendering when necessary (e.g., "justified" in both 7:29 and 7:35, otherwise obscured in the NIV). Technical notes are generally resorted to footnotes.

I wish this edition were as in depth (only 390 pages for 24 chapters!), but it's still a good commentary for someone wanting to gain scholarly access to Luke and apply it to their lives.
