This is a good commentary on Luke
on 30 December 2015
I love this series, "The Bible Speaks Today," and have read all the New Testament Commentaries in the series. I have just started getting the commentaries on Kindle and am in the process of reading through The Message of Luke. This is a good commentary on Luke, but I am really disappointed with the massive number of errors in the Kindle edition. It is as if the Kindle edition has been put out before anybody has proof read it. It looks like a spell check was run, but there are many words spelled correctly, but they are obviously the wrong words in the wrong places. For example in the section Good News (7:1-8:21) it says, "Then is more to be said about each of these stories." Rather than, "There is more to be said...." A little later even the Bible itself is misquoted ".....For I tell you that many prophets and kings desired to set what you see....." (10:23-24) Of course it should be, "many prophets and kings desired to see what you see." These are two examples of mistakes I see every time I pick up the Kindle to read this commentary, which makes reading it very frustrating. The print copy is fine, but obviously something has gone very wrong in transferring it over to a Kindle format.
