Alan J. Thompson. Luke. Exegetical Guide to the Greek New Testament. Nashville: Broadman & Holman, 2017. xliv + 414 pp.
I haven’t read every word of it, but I spent enough time surveying it to know that this is a tool I’m glad to have in my toolbox for interpreting Luke.
The endorsements (further down the page here) are pretty glowing. They are by D. A. Carson, Darrell Bock, Paul Barnett, and Brandon Crowe. The one by Bock is noteworthy since he has written at least four commentaries on Luke, a theology of Luke-Acts, and at least four other books on the Gospels.
I used to interact a good bit with Alan Thompson when he was the New Testament book review editor for Themelios, and he was a delight to work with. He is a gifted exegete with an expertise in Luke and Acts. He wrote his PhD dissertation at TEDS on “The Unity of the Church in Acts in its Literary Setting” (2004; published in the prestigious LNTS series in 2008), and he later wrote The Acts of the Risen Lord Jesus: Luke’s Account of God’s Unfolding Plan for Don Carson’s New Studies in Biblical Theology series (2011).
