Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Dramatic Commentary   Feb 24, 2007
Swanson is a very creative writer! His commentary is a one-of-a-kind attempt to give the presentor of St. Luke's Gospel (preachers or those who want to present the text as a drama) ideas about how to approach doing this. As is the case with many commentaries written to help preachers with creative ideas for their coming sermons, some of Swanson's approaches are very helpful; some are not. We each go about preaching the way we do it. In addition, Swanson has translated St. Luke's Gospel, reading the Jewishness of Jesus back into our English langauge text (for instance He is called Yeshua). It is good drama, but I don't see many congregations capable of handling his translation. His commentary follows the readings, Sunday to Sunday, from the Revised Common Lectionary (RCL). It is a good resource for preachers who follow the Christian Year, and not so good for those who don't.
