Format: Paperback
The Gospel of Luke presents scholars with a fund of information, purporting to record key elements of the life of Jesus of Nazareth and contains much debated `verba christ' therein, too. It is perhaps the most `human' of the various Biblical depictions of the Galilean and - when one considers the fabulous presentations of the Christ within the Fourth Gospel and other proto-Gnostic and even Gnostic non-canonical works, then one might even suppose that Luke's is a Gospel tinged with at least a degree of realism.

My edition of this Commentary dates from, 1990, so certain points may differ from more recent versions. As with the majority of this well respected series of Biblical studies, this one "Attempts to set out the main findings of recent New Testament scholarship and to describe the historical background to the text. The main theological content of the New Testament will also be critically discussed." Like all the books in this series, it is closely associated on the text of the New English Bible, but is still applicable for students using other, and more modern versions, or even those seeking to exposit the Greek text.

This volume in the Cambridge Bible Commentaries series was penned by Ernest John Tinsley, former Professor of Theology at Leeds and later Bishop of Bristol. Tinsley wrote other works, including more `spiritual, devotional and homiletic' ones such as `The Imitation of God in Christ: An essay on the Biblical basis of Christian Spirituality', (1960). The text is pedestrian but reasonably thorough.

The Cambridge Bible Commentary can still be considered to be a benchmark for sound scholarship, thorough introductions which introduce the reader to the pertinent historical, critical and even (on occasions) the socio-political issues of the day.

E.J. Tinsley's commentary still worthy after 40+ yrs. 23 May 2009
By L. Bravim - Published on Amazon.com
E.J. Tinsley's Luke is part of the Cambridge Bible Commentary series. I was amazed that breadth and depth of Luke's gospel were so well-balanced in a small book. Tinsley includes the full text of Luke while explaining significance, theory, theology and references to the OT. It has aged extremely well since 1965 and still appropriate for use at a church Bible study series or personal use. I've read other commentaries of Luke and this stands up well next to the more contemporary attempts. Do not purchase this if you're looking for something for younger teens or want lots of pictures, maps and plot summaries. This is an old-fashioned, text-based commentary through-and-through.
