The Weekly Hit List: September 7, 2012

Luke (a Brazos Theological Commentary on the Bible) by David Lyle Jeffrey was reviewed in Englewood Review of Books.

Brazos Theological Commentary has, in my opinion, offered a breath of fresh air to the sometimes stale academic air of commentaries.  The newest volume in the series is Luke by David Lyle Jeffrey. . . .

This is a great commentary series for its scholarship and unabashed emphasis on how scripture leads us into the sacred story of self-giving love.  I would commend David Lyle Jeffrey’s volume on Luke in particular for those, especially in ministry, who are looking to dive deeper into the theological power of Luke.
