4.0 out of 5 stars Good to start with. 24 Mar 2014
I don't think I've ever been disappointed by any commentary by Warren Wiersbe as I always find him very clear and helpful, particularly in the early stages of preparing a passage for preaching. This as usual ticks all those boxes. It's easy to read and it is very clear and will give you some good pointers in dealing with the text. Wiersbe only goes in to translation if he needs too, and only then only at a superficial level as he is hardly looking to appeal to academics. If you're looking to grapple with the Greek text then this is not the commentary for you. But don't be fooled by it as there is much good here and his insights are often very useful. As I said before, well worth reading and very it is useful to get the feel of a passage in preparation for preaching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Insightful & Interesting 24 Sep 2010
By Debbie - Published on
"BE Compassionate" is a commentary on chapters 1-13 of Luke, but it's written more like a Bible study than a Bible reference book. As in, you could go to a certain chapter and verse reference and read the entry for more information, but the book was designed to be read from start to finish. The book was easy to understand and an enjoyable, quick read.

With one exception, each chapter in the book covered one chapter in Luke. The author pointed out the meanings of Greek words that don't fully translate into English and background historical information that helped to bring out the full impact of the verses. There were 9 to 11 questions at the end of each chapter. Some tested to see if you remembered/understood what the author had said, but others were discussion/reflection questions about how you could apply what you had just learned.

This study made me think, and I gained a lot of new insights from reading it. I didn't agree with a few of the author's conclusions, but I'm not claiming that they're wrong. I've just heard a different spin put on the events that seems to fit better, in my opinion. Overall, I'd highly recommend this book as a Bible study for those who want a deeper understanding of the Word.

I received this book as a review copy from the publisher.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Background to Biblical Readings 9 Aug 2010
By Jennifer - Published on
Every Christmas Eve, our family reads the story of the birth of Christ from Luke chapter 2. Many Christian families do. For this reason, it is likely one of the most read books of the Bible. And yet, how much do we actually know about Luke, about his service to our Lord, and about Luke's contributions to the Biblical account of Jesus' coming, His works, His death, and His resurrection?

Dr. Wiersbe's Be Compassionate is a detailed look at the first thirteen chapters of Luke through which he encourages the reader to understand and experience Jesus' compassion and to learn to be compassionate to others.

Dr. Wiersbe's book provides detailed information on the history and customs of the time, background on the characters in the chapters, and commentary on the language and its importance to the meaning of the passages. It makes for fascinatingreading. For an informative Bible Study, read the suggested verses from the Bible and then delve into the commentary. The questions for personal reflection or group discussion at the end of each chapter help to solidify the reader's understanding of the Biblical passages in light of the commentary and are a useful addition to the book and to the reader's study of the book of Luke.

I received this book from B & B Media Group in exchange for my honest review. The thoughts printed in this review are entirely my own.
