Read Mark Learn has taught hundreds of us over the years to know our Bibles and our God better.
Hugh Palmer, Rector, All Souls Langham Place, London
This volume arose out of the regular preaching ministry at St Helen's Bishopsgate, London, and its homiletical genesis is often apparent. The rising tendency to leverage sermons into material for small group study is wholly salutary, and this is a wonderful and helpful example of its kind. I hope it circulates widely.
D. A. Carson, Research Professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, Deerfield, Illinois
This series of books is superb for personal study, and for helping those who teach the Bible to others. I've been getting a lot to give away to others now. The level is accessible, the reasoning clear, the application careful. Faithful and concise, never missing the big picture. Excellent.
Mark Dever, Senior Pastor, Capitol Hill Baptist Church and President, 9Marks.org, Washington, DC
Dive in, devour and delight in the wisdom offered in this essential resource for developing a thoughtful and biblical Christianity. In particular, this Luke edition balances sharp theological insight with precise invitations for discipleship and growth.
Daniel Montgomery, Lead Pastor, Sojourn Community Church, Louisville, Kentucky
These notes help us understand each passage clearly in light of the whole revelation of God in Scripture. While aimed primarily at Bible Study leaders, there is much to be learned here by preachers as well as those engaging in a personal study of Luke's Gospel.
Andrew Cheah, Dean of St Mary's Anglican Cathedral Contemporary, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
These studies are clear and concise - thoughtful and thorough. They pulsate with Luke's original purpose so evidently that each study is faithful to God's word and strongly application driven. I have no doubt that God will use them widely around the world to build up His church.
Denesh Divyanathan, Founding Pastor of The Crossing Church in Singapore and President of Project Timothy, Singapore
This volume feeds the most knowledgeable Bible student, splendidly prepares the group leader, and challenges and edifies group members in the great truths revealed in Luke's gospel. I will be recommending it to our Theological College students!
Archie Poulos, Head of Ministry Department, Moore College, Sydney
This series on Luke's Gospel will assist individuals and groups to understand what this part of the Bible is saying and the difference it makes to the lives of God's people. Behind these brief notes lies a patient, serious wrestling with the text by one who knows that God's word is good.
Mark D. Thompson, Principal, Moore Theological College, New South Wales, Australia
These books are thorough, sound and Christ-centred. Though focused on a particular section of Scripture, they also present an overall view of the Bible. Old Testament connections to what is happening in Jesus' ministry are brought out as you go through Luke's Gospel. The book is intended for small group leaders or anyone ready for a fairly serious study. Readers will come out with a sound basic understanding of Luke and its place in God's redemptive programme. Taylor avoids any secondary issues and sticks to the main thrusts of each passage. On the whole, this is a good book and comes warmly recommended.
