Item Description...
Plenty of important questions vie for attention in contemporary Lucan scholarship. In this New International Biblical Ccommentary volume, Craig Evans not only demonstrates a firm grasp of them, but makes them perfectly comprehensible to laypeople. His clear writing and logical explanations lay open both difficult Lucan passages and scholarly arguments about them. This commentary is probably the best popular-level one on Lukes gospel!

Excellent Shorter Commentary On Luke's Gospel  Feb 3, 2007
I'm working on a short sermon series through Luke's gospel. I have read a number of works (select portions). I think that Evans NIBC commentary brings aspects into the picture that I haven't found in the other commentaries. For example, most commentaries deal with the temptation of Christ in the wilderness and mention allusions or parallels to Israel's wandering in the wilderness, or Job's trials or Paul's affliction. It was Craig Evans that pointed out the link to Moses' forty days of fasting and then the proclamation of the law which followed that.

Perhaps another commentator brings this out, but what pastor has time to read them all. The thing I like about this one is that he is to the point and he tries to bring in pertinent points that others don't always bring out.

For pastors/teachers who need a commentary to supplement their exegetical work but who are under a time constraint, this NIBC series generally works really well in that role. It also works well as another view in the mix of several quality commentaries. For Luke, I have found Bock's to be perhaps the best. Even so, I am still checking what Evans says and sometimes find some nuggets worth adding to my notes. Therefore, I heartily recommend this commentary.
You Get What You Pay For  Aug 16, 2004
Craig Evans is a well-respected New Testament scholar and this is one of the least expensive commentaries by someone of his caliber that you will find. Even so, it remains true that you get what you pay for.

In a brisk introduction, Evans covers authorship, date, emphasis, relationship with the other canonical gospels, and basic outline. He then moves through the text, section by section in brief overviews of each that have a few additional notes at the end. As you would expect of someone of Evan's caliber, he often provides insight and overviews that are helpful to the layperson. However, if you are a layperson who is a little more informed than the average, you will probably be better served by saving up a few bucks and buying a more expensive commentary.
An excellent value  Feb 20, 2001
... Craig Evans has given us a commentary on Luke that is packed with information. This commentary is not nearly as detailed or in-depth as others on Luke (i.e. Bock, Fitzmeyer, etc), but it wasn't intended to be; as is acknowledged by Evans in the introduction. Evans begins with a concise, yet helpful introduction in which he argues that this gospel was written by Luke, a companion of Paul, sometime around 75-85 C.E.

After the intro, Evans picks up the commentary on Luke by breaking it into sections of roughly a half chapter in length. The commentary is based on the NIV translation. For a commentary as short as this one, I was amazed at the amount of historical background provided. Its obvious that Evans is very well-read on this gospel. He covers many differing opinions on passages which have received different interpretations.

If you're looking for your first commentary on Luke and you're on a tight budget, then you can't go wrong with this one.... Evans fills a much needed area by providing an affordable, yet scholarly commentary on Luke.
