If you're looking for a commentary that is easy to read and will give you sermon application material this is not for you.
Enormously learned, detailed in its textual, literary, redaction and tradition criticism, Marshall displays his customary grasp of the full range of contemporary scholarship and does excellent work in putting forth
the various positions held by numerous scholars; but he nevertheless is pointedly dismissive of twentieth century liberal criticism. The vast majority of his insights prove reliable, helpful, and incisive, however, in a thoroughly conventional vein. These features, together with the orderly manner in which the material is presented, render the book a valuable contribution for the understanding of the Gospel of Luke. Furthermore, if you want to find consistently conservative views on the authorship, dating and textual integrity, then this is the place to go.
This book is based on the UBS Greek New Testament, edited by Kurt Aland.
I appreciated Marshall's emphasis that the theory that Luke drew his material from the Q documents was improbable. I also appreciated his references to materials that were found with the Dead Sea scrolls.
This is not a book for casual readers, but important for those who want to dig deeper.
