Esteemed biblical scholar Dale Ralph Davis examines the treasure to be found in Luke’s gospel. His humor and love for his Saviour shine through in this addition to the Focus on the Bible series. Taking a few verses at a time, the exegesis draws the reader into the fascination that Luke has for this man Jesus. Volume one covers chapters 1–13 of Luke, while volume two covers chapters 14–24.
Dale Ralph Davis was Minister in Residence, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina. Prior to that he was pastor of Woodland Presbyterian Church, Hattiesburg, Mississippi and Professor of Old Testament at Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, Mississippi.
"Written with Dale Ralph Davis’ usual clarity, humour and warmth, these volumes will not only serve as a sure guide to help readers understand Luke’s Gospel but will strengthen them in their faith in the Jesus about whom Luke writes." - Peter Orr, Lecturer in New Testament, Moore Theological College, Sydney
"… Davis’s exposition of Luke is so winsome, wise, and illuminating that I found it hard to put down. His pastoral application with stories and illustrations is nothing short of brilliant. Read the exposition, meditate and pray on what you read, and encounter Jesus Christ." - Thomas R. Schreiner, James Buchanan Harrison Professor of New Testament Interpretation and Associate Dean, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky
"Brimming with insightful exegesis, theological depth, vivid illustration and pastoral application, these two volumes are vintage Dale Ralph Davis. Whether you use them in personal devotion, or a small group, or as a preacher seeking to teach your congregation, this engaging journey through Luke’s gospel will be a very useful and edifying guide." - Reuben Hunter, Pastor, Trinity West Church, London
"… practical, scholarly, whimsical, logical, shrewd, humorous, insightful, creative, thoughtful, gripping. But best of all it is true to the text and intent of Luke’s Gospel and its focal point, Jesus Christ. Davis wonderfully combines a scholar’s skills and wisdom with a storyteller’s knack and a pastoral heart." - Robert W. Yarbrough, Professor of New Testament, Covenant Theological Seminary, St. Louis, Missouri
"Davis not only informs your mind (helpful technical footnotes are included on the bottom of the pages); he feeds your soul, fills your heart, and moves you to praise and thank God for the one who came to seek and to save the lost (Luke 17:10)." - Steve Jussely, Senior Pastor, Lakeland Presbyterian Church (PCA), Flowood, Mississippi and Former Adjunct Professor of Homiletics, Reformed Theological Seminary
"… here is a scholar (he is a ninja in the original languages) and a convicted pastor and a winsome believer. In Dr. Davis’ Luke exposition, your eye is drawn to authorial intent and your heart is drawn to the matchlessness of Christ." - Austin T. Duncan, Professor of Pastoral Ministries, Director of D.Min Studies, Director, The MacArthur Center for Expository Preaching, The Master’s Seminary, Los Angeles, California
