About Luke 1-9:20 (Volume 35a):
Treating Luke’s Gospel as a theological treatise rather than as a biography, Nolland gauges Luke’s effectiveness in presenting the gospel message and in arguing the case of Christ to the Gentiles of the Hellenistic world. His well-tempered emphasis on the scholarly discussion of Luke supports insightful and practical interpretations which modern preachers and readers will find helpful.
About Luke 9:21-18:43 (Volume 35b):
In his first volume, Dr. Nolland expertly traced Jesus’ general ministry throughout Palestine. Here the focus narrows to an incisive statement of Jesus’ purpose as the suffering Servant, and to the fate that this will mean for Him in Jerusalem. Now the author invites us to follow Christ’s footsteps on what will ultimately turn out to be His “pathway to glory.” Dr. Nolland continues to portray Luke as a creative but reliable historian with an explicit theological purpose. While he probes possible sources of the evangelist’s material, the emphasis is on the final product--the Gospel text as “an exercise in communication, deliberately undertaken by the Gospel writer with at least some focused sense of the actual or potential needs of his audience.” The author notes the dramatic turn of events with which this section of Luke begins. The disciples had just arrived at the exhilirating confession that Jesus is “The Christ of God.” And little wonder--up to now.
About Luke 19-24 (Volume 35c):
Nolland concludes his exhaustive study of the third Gospel, delineating for us both the method and content of Luke’s theological reflections on Our Lord’s death, resurrection and ascension. This work also contains a complete bibliography of past and contemporary works.
