This pithy and well–informed exposition is a delight to dig through. It concisely and creatively opens up Luke’s Gospel section by section. The footnotes show that the author has read widely and done his homework. Illustrations are numerous, some humorous, some harrowing (like contemporary accounts of tortured Christians). Most significantly, the character and brilliance of Jesus shine forth. Readers at all levels will deepen in their knowledge and devotion to him through the wisdom that abounds in these pages.

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.

Read Mark Learn (RML) is surely the benchmark for group Bible study and William Taylor’s second Luke volume reminds us just how high the RML standard is. It provides a complete tool box for those aiming at serious engagement with the text. Context, main themes, structure, aim and focused application support the suggested study questions. I can’t imagine there is anything else in the publishing world that could match this.

What a great resource! Whether for personal study, group discussion, or for preaching, this is a wonderful guide which unpacks Luke’s message in a clear and comprehensive way, sets the story in its wider Biblical frame, highlights its themes and provides key questions for reflection and discussion. But what makes this more than a study guide (though it is first rate in that regard) are the many nuggets of wisdom, the penetrating insights, and the pertinent application for today’s disciples.

By God’s grace, William Taylor is one of our finest bible expositors today. In this volume, he studies the travel narrative of Luke’s Gospel. With meticulous attention to the context, he doesn’t lose the forest for the trees, and carefully reveals the intent of Luke as our author and theologian in his ‘orderly account’. Here is a great gift to help us mediate and delight in God’s most holy Word.
