Continuing a series republishing classic commentaries, these two editions bring the work of competent scholars and teachers to a new audience. Ryle’s commentary on Luke is in-depth and encouraging, written with beautifully constructed sentences. Lightfoot, careful as ever in his study of words and their setting, establishes the Colossian correspondence in the context of the heresy faced. Modern commentaries obviously contain a wealth of new material, relevant to the academic discussion of today, which these lack. Yet as a place to find inspiration and insight into the gospel and the epistles, these are excellent.
