Additional Information

In this second of two volumes on the Gospel According to Luke, beginning with chapter 10, Joseph A. Fitzmyer builds on the exhaustive introduction, definitive new translation, and extensive notes and commentary presented in his first volume. Fitzmyer brings to the task his mastery of ancient and modern languages, his encyclopedic knowledge of the sources, and his intimate acquaintance with the questions and issues raised by the third Synoptic Gospel.

In “joining the spirit to the letter” and scholarship to faith, this two-volume commentary on Luke has, as the Journal of Biblical Literature predicted, “rapidly and deservedly become the standard work on Luke.” Luke’s unique literary and linguistic features, its relation to the other Gospels and the book of Acts, and its distinctive theological slant are discussed in detail by the author. The Jesus of Luke’s Gospel speaks to the Greco-Roman world of first-century Christians, giving the followers of Jesus a reason for remaining faithful. Fitzmyer’s exposition of Luke helps modern-day Christians hear the Good News afresh and understand it like never before.

This is the second of a two-volume set. I have owned both of them for over 20 years. These are primarily reference books of a technical and seasonal nature. They are like a companion that you don't see for a while but reacquaint yourself with periodically. Every three years, when the Catholic Church is in Cycle C of the Lectionary, the readings are primarily from Luke's gospel. These are great for following the Church through the weeks of this cycle. I am not a Biblical Scholar. What's more, I have only a rudimentary working knowledge of Greek and am therefore somewhat limited to the amount of research I can do. As well, I am limited by time. I have a number of other sources to use. Nevertheless, when I need strict Biblical interpretation for weekly writing or teaching, I prefer to use these volumes, before going anywhere else.

I do not regard every volume of the Anchor Bible series to be of equal weight; however, I always find myself returning to Fitzmeyer for exegesis and... Read more
`The Gospel According to Luke I - IX' and `The Gospel According to Luke X - XXIV' by Professor Joseph Fitzmyer comprises the `Anchor Bible' series commentary on the Gospel of Luke, the third Evangelist. The very best thing I can say about this work is that virtually every other commentary, from all ends of the spectrum, cites this work as a reliable authority on the subject. One should still take some care before investing in the purchase of a copy of these two relatively pricy volumes.
The first consideration is that you may actually have trouble finding the first volume, as it appears to be out of print. I was lucky enough to get it from an alternate source available through Amazon, and I'm quite happy to have acquired it, as it lives up to its reputation in every way. But here we meet a second consideration. This is the fact that this great work, weighing in at over 1600 pages, is at the highly scholarly end of the spectrum of Gospel commentaries. The only work which may be... Read more
