Editorial Reviews

Review

-- Southwestern Journal of Theology
"The choice of Howard Marshall to write the volume on the Johannine Epistles is exceedingly fortunate. . . . There is good balance between the technical and the practical, thus making the commentary useful to both the scholar and the Bible preacher and teacher. . . . An outstanding commentary, probably the best available in English."

-- Journal of Biblical Literature
"A clear and well-organized commentary. . . . Marshall has provided a complete and up-to-date bibliography and has demonstrated his thorough acquaintance with all the various opinions of those current scholars of note who have worked in this area."

-- Expository Times
"An expert and readable treatment, characterized by exegetical skill and a thorough knowledge of the relevant literature. . . . An indispensable aid."

And often this tells us very little.

I have first-year+ greek but am not a professional theologian...just a keen amateur.
S. M. Baldwin
This is a great commentary, if you can make what for with all of the Greek in it.

I am puzzled by the poor reviews this commentary is getting. The reviews follow the logic of giving a wrench a 2 star rating because it doesn't work with my philip screw. Not all commentaries are written for the same purpose. The title to this series makes it's purpose very clear. If you're looking for comments on the Greek Text this is for you.
If you're looking for a commentary that is easy to read and will give you sermon application material this is not for you.

This is a great commentary, if you can make what for with all of the Greek in it. I love it. It was my favorite commentary on Luke for a long time. But it is long on exegesis and theology and short on practical stuff. And it doesn't have much of an introduction at all! Marshall's "Luke: Historian and Theologian should be purchased with this to compensate for a lack of an introduction. But the great thing about this commentary is how accurate Marshall is on his interpretations of the passages.

Format: Hardcover
This commentary provides a thorough analysis of the Greek text of the Gospel of Luke and is geared toward the serious reader of the New Testament who wants to understand the nuances and complexity of the Greek.
Enormously learned, detailed in its textual, literary, redaction and tradition criticism, Marshall displays his customary grasp of the full range of contemporary scholarship and does excellent work in putting forth
the various positions held by numerous scholars; but he nevertheless is pointedly dismissive of twentieth century liberal criticism. The vast majority of his insights prove reliable, helpful, and incisive, however, in a thoroughly conventional vein. These features, together with the orderly manner in which the material is presented, render the book a valuable contribution for the understanding of the Gospel of Luke. Furthermore, if you want to find consistently conservative views on the authorship, dating and textual integrity, then this is the place to go.

Format: Hardcover
I do not consider myself to be a Greek scholar, but there are times when you have to dig deeper into the Greek text and this commentary is a huge help in that regard. I appreciated the way the book gave a history of the language as well as the historical context of the culture. Since language and culture often progress at different paces, it was helpful to see both in the same book.

This book is based on the UBS Greek New Testament, edited by Kurt Aland.

I appreciated Marshall's emphasis that the theory that Luke drew his material from the Q documents was improbable. I also appreciated his references to materials that were found with the Dead Sea scrolls.

This is not a book for casual readers, but important for those who want to dig deeper.

Format: Hardcover
Among Evangelical New Testament Scholars, I. H. Marshall is among the best. His works continue to provide important opportunities for reflection. However, here in his commentary on Luke Marshall leaves his remarks on the text incomplete. His exposition on the greek text is good, yet for the pastor who is looking for help as Sunday draws ever more close, Marshall is less helpful. Written before narrative approaches became in vogue, Marshall's historical/ redaction approach is somewhat dated. His comments are thorough, his remarks evangelical and orthodox, his outlook on Luke, all good, however, this commentary could have been better.
