John G Mason charts a course through Luke’s Gospel for today’s readers, drawing from his many years of study of this account of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. A fulfillment of ancient promises and the catalyst for a new covenant, the Messiah we meet in Luke’s gospel not only died and rose again but also called for all nations to know repentance and forgiveness. As John G Mason explains this Gospel clearly and helpfully, he also encourages readers to ask, and answer for themselves, the question: Did God really become one of us?
John G Mason is the founding rector of Christ Church New York City, which he established in 2004. He was also rector of St Clement's Anglican Church, Mosman, Sydney for 16 years, and previously, founding rector of St Matthew's Church, Wanniassa, Australian Capital Territory, as well as the founding chairman of Trinity School, Canberra. He also taught New Testament theology at the former Canberra College of Ministry.
John Mason's workmanlike running commentary offers constant insightful answers to many searching questions. Thoughtful Bible students will reap great benefits from it.

For over three decades I have been longing to see the very able Australian Theologians put their wealth of biblical insight on paper. Finally, they did. This series of commentaries has great depth without being too technical. I highly recommend it.
