This commentary on Luke by Fred. B. Craddock, well known professor of Preaching adn New Testament at Candler School of Theology, is a well-researched, very readable work. It reflects comprehensive knowledge of current scholarly arguments, although it does not put these in dramatic display. Craddock knows why he is writing and for whom. He writes in a straightforward style, without jargon, without condescension. He writes for the reader assumed to be teacher and preacher, not, as is the case with most writers of commentaries, primarily for the technical scholar.
