Looking Forward To

This volume. The first volume, Köstenberger on John, was a real masterpiece, done by the evangelical world’s best expert on John. Similarly, this volume on Luke-Acts is being done by the evangelical world’s foremost expert on the Lucan material. The only thing that gives me concern is the length. Less than 500 pages to deal with the theology of Luke AND Acts? We shall see.

    I look forward to this volume too. Though some Reformed folk may write him off because of his progressive dispensationalist stance I think Bock is one of the best evangelical biblical scholars in recent years when it comes to the Lucan material.

    Seems to me 500 pages should be sufficient since he’s not writing a commentary (which *would* require many more pages, especially if it’s an academic commentary) but, rather, a theology of these books.

    Well, the John volume by Kostenberger was about 630 pages and covered John and the epistles of John. Luke and Acts is a quarter of the New Testament. So, I hear you, but it will probably not be quite as thorough as the John volume.
