The book has an introduction and bibliography for further study. Each letter has its own outline. The commentary text is in the traditional verse by verse format. All comments are based on the NIV text which is included in sections. And even though it is based on the NIV, that does not effect the books usefulness for someone using another version. There are footnotes for further explanation of certain ideas, and important Greek words are explained in the text. The Greek words are shown both in the Greek alphabet and spelled phonetically. This is especially helpful those of us who never studied Greek.
As Byron Fike noted in his earlier review, there are a number of supplemental studies scattered throughout the book. There are 23 of these in all and they are listed in a table at the beginning of the book.
The publisher, College Press, also published the Bible Study Textbook series which is now out of print and can be downloaded for free from the publisher's website in pdf form
I would highly recommend this work to help the individual or teacher who wants to gain a better understanding of Luke's Gospel. It is particularly well suited for the teacher with limited preparation time who needs a well thought out commentary that can be quickly read.
