insightful insights Feb. 3 2012
By Michael A. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Charles Swindoll does it again, putting forth his longest volume in his `Insights' series. As always, this teacher of pastors has lots of charts, graphs, Greek language exposition, pictures and maps, and brings out the intent, context (historical & biblical), and meaning, without reading things into the text or bogging you down to show off his scholarship. This is the commentary series to get, as it is all you'll need, yet easy to read and follow.

Swindoll sets the pace for high quality commentary July 7 2012
By robert johnston - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This was my 4th read of Swindoll's "Insights" commentary. Swindoll's approach is outstanding. Swindoll delivers a taxonomically dissected story and ascribes the major components as the original author likely approached the writing of books. It's a reading pleasure to get into the rhythm of Swindoll's commentary method that creates a level of anticipation for the reader. His use of a common template discipline across all of his commentaries adds a recognizable, up-beat cadence that contributes to absorbing the topics. The method brings life to the story.

I measure Luke commentary's in their consideration of the point between verses Luke 9:50 and Luke 9:51. The biblical verse numbering system breaks down hard at this specific juncture for reasons I've often wondered. An entirely different narrative begins mid-way in Luke 9 at Luke 9:51 and continues thru 19:27. The significance of the narrative change is adequate to rise to a new book in my opinion, yet a 'new' chapter was not even noticed by the old translators. I've often wondered if the original, verse numbering translators theologically understood that they had missed such a significant "new" grouping of chapters. Swindoll seizes on the curiosity of the `whole other story' that begins at 9:51. He seizes on several difficult passages in this 'long walk' story to render fresh and challenging opinions.

Swindoll's Luke is a lengthy commentary. It may be too much for a newbie as it explores the underlying Greek extensively. If you know biblical Greek, you will see that Swindoll is applying and contrasting the latest in-situ word meanings and highlights the Greek that has yet to be seen in use extra-biblically. Several examples that Swindoll captures have sent me to the references and I was excited to grasp the extended meanings that amplify the passages.

5-star superb commentary!

This book presents great insight on the Gospel of Luke. It is written in an easy to understand method.Charles brings great insight and additional information to accent the scriptures. This book has been a great source for our small group Bible study. Can't wait to purchase and read other books in the Insight series. Hopefully he does one on every book in the New Testament.

Insightful April 24 2013
By Gail Losch - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am a lay person and master certified Biblical Storyteller. Part of the process of internalizing scripture is research, research, research and thinking about the "story" from many different perspectives. I found this book very helpful in this; gave me different ideas and things to think about. Good for Bible study and diving into the text.
