It is organized by theme not verse by verse but don't let it deter you. All you have to do is look up your passage in the scripture index and you can quickly find the section you are studying. The organization by theme is important because this helps to highlight the themes throughout the book. By linking them together it clearly shows the repetitions used by Luke.(Some chapters are "Jesus and the Disciples" and "Jesus and the excluded and oppressed", "Jesus and the crowds")
I would highly recommend this volume in conjunction with a commentary that is strong in the historical background of Luke. With the two together you will have a great resource to understand Luke's account of the good news found in Jesus.
Luke shows an emphasis on Jesus' interaction with Jews, Samaritans, Gentiles, the rich, the poor and women. Luke is the only evangelist to mention the back story of John the Baptist. Luke is the only one of the gospels to mention Jesus being sent to Herod during the Passion story. Luke mentions over 10 women not mentioned in any of the other gospels. Luke is the only one to mention the Ascension.
In volume II the theme of "all flesh" is continued; In the book of Acts, it is said "I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh." (Acts 2:17)
We see the baptism of and reception of the Spirit by: Jews, converts to Judaism, Samaritans, God-fearers/Worshippers of God, pagan Gentiles and disciples of John the Baptist.
Luke's two-part story goes from the center of Jewish life (the temple in Jerusalem) to the center of Gentile life (Rome).
