For a layman leading a Bible study group looking at Luke in depth I have so far found this commentary very good.
David Morrison
The Zondervan Exegetical Commentary series is well underway, with the publication of James, Galatians, Matthew, Ephesians and now Luke joining the number.
Kevin
Each section gives a summation of the main idea, a translation of the Greek text, as well as an outline of the text structure.

Students and pastors have been blessed with many good recent works on the Gospel of Luke. One thinks of Green's NICNT volume and Bock's massive two-volume contribution to the BECNT series. The most recent offering in the ZECNT series is this new commentary on the Gospel of Luke by David Garland. This is my first commentary I have ever read by David Garland but I have read each of the previous volumes in the ZECNT series and thus can compare the quality and usefulness of this commentary compared to the other ZECNT volumes so far available.

For those not familiar with the format of the ZECNT series, there is much to be liked here for the student and pastor. As an exegetical commentary, naturally the commentary provides fairly detailed exegesis of the Greek text and it also includes other useful features for each section such as outlines, literary structure, main idea summary, and theology in application. Each of these features work better in some of these commentaries than others, mostly dependent on the respective authors of the commentaries. So what about Garland's contribution on Luke's Gospel?

First, the positive: Garland's commentary is fairly comprehensive (almost 1000 pages) and he generally does a great job of explaining the text and commenting on Greek grammar and syntax as it is appropriate and helpful to the reader. Garland also does a good job in discussing the literary structure of the text and showing how the different sections of Luke relate to one another. Garland also rightly connects Luke to Acts in his interpretation and exegesis of phrases and emphases that are uniquely Lukan.

Format: Hardcover
Garland's commentary on Luke is more than 1,000 pages, but this should not be a surprise, since Luke is the longest Gospel. Like the rest of the ZECNT series, it is "designed for the pastor and Bible teacher." Garland assumes a basic knowledge of Greek, but Greek is not required to understand his commentary. For each passage the commentary gives the broader literary context, the main idea (great for preachers!), an original translation of the Greek and its graphical layout, the structure, an outline, explanation, and "theology in application" section.

The graphical layout of each passage is a unique contribution that Garland's Luke makes to Luke studies. Even though a narrative book like Luke is easier to follow than some of Paul's detailed arguments, seeing main clauses in bold with subordinate clauses indented under them (plus how they relate back to the main clause) gives the reader a quick, visual grasp of the entire passage at hand. Garland does this well, too.

Luke has the full Greek text of Luke, verse by verse, and full English translation by Garland (passage by passage in the graphical layout, then again verse by verse next to the Greek). A value for me in using reference works is not having to pull five more reference works off the shelf to use the first reference work! This is about as portable as exegesis of Luke gets. Garland's English translation is a bit wooden at times--just about every kai in the opening narrative of 1:5-25 receives the translation "and," which it shouldn't always.

Garland's intro is short, but covers what it needs to. He attributes authorship to Luke and holds to Luke-Acts unity, as many scholars do.

Format: Hardcover
The Zondervan Exegetical Commentary series is well underway, with the publication of James, Galatians, Matthew, Ephesians and now Luke joining the number. This volume follows the vision of the series with the focus on accessible Greek language examination/translation and theological discussion in the commentary, and with an application section that concludes each section.

David Garland works through Luke largely by means of literary criticism (akin to Osborne's work on Matthew). He observes differences between the gospels to highlight Luke's unique perspective (this is seen most clearly in the passion narrative). Depending on the section, he works verse-by-verse and comments concisely on important Greek words. He includes quotations (sometimes lenghty) of relevant Jewish and Greco-Roman writings to help seat Luke's account of Jesus inside its first-century world, and he isn't afraid to look to Acts when explaining Luke.

While all of this sounds like standard fare for a commentary, it is done exceptionally well by Garland. While not a Luke specialist per se, he is a commentary specialist--with commentaries on Matthew, Mark, 1 Corinthians, 2 Corinthians and Colossians/Philemon under his belt. His writing is clear and concise, and his prose can shift between clever turns of phrase to reverent solemnity. This is most evident in the application sections, where he encourages care for the needy or speaks on divorce with pastoral sensitivity.

Depending on what one needs in a commentary, this one-volume work is a great foundation for studying and preaching on Luke. For scholars, he cites with the standard commentaries and monographs (Tyson, Karris, Fitzmeyer), but he doesn't go into lengthy debate or disagreement with them.
