Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300139802, Paperback)

In this first of two volumes on the "Gospel According to Luke", Joseph A. Fitzmyer provides an exhaustive introduction, a definitive new translation, and extensive notes and commentary on "Luke's Gospel". 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 occasioned by the third "Synoptic Gospel"."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 this Gospel helps modern-day Christians hear the Good News afresh.
