Format: Hardcover
The commentary on Luke's Gospel by Norval Geldenhuys, one of the volumes in the NICNT series, is a scholarly yet readable treatise on the third Gospel. The writing is clear and concise, while at the same time exhibiting a thoroughness that provides a good deal of depth. Both the scholar and the layperson can profit from its contents.

More technical matters, such as comments on the Greek text, have been placed in the footnotes that may be found after each section of the text. This has the advantage of permitting the main body of the text to speak to the issues that will be of relevance to all readers while at the same time providing those readers who have a working knowledge of Greek with the opportunity to delve into these other issues.

In addition to the commentary on the Gospel text itself, Geldenhuys provides a significant amount of introductory material dealing with the author, the sources, the date of writing, the style, and the aim of the Gospel. Particularly interesting is Geldenhuys's discussion of the date of Luke's Gospel. He makes a strong case for the early dating of Luke, sometime in the 60s A.D. rather than the post-70 A.D. date almost universally assigned by critical scholarship.

The back of the commentary contains an "excursus" of some 22 pages on the day and date of the crucifixion. This contains a number of interesting and insightful comments and is worth the time it takes to read.
