Leon Morris is the author of the Luke volume in the Tyndale New Testament Commentary series.
It is considered one of the best Luke commentaries available today.
Morris originally published this commentary in 1974. He revised it in 1988.
Reviewers have noted that there are not substantial changes in the revised edition, so if a reader has the original volume, it may be sufficient.
The commentary is designed for pastors. It is not technical so readers do not need to know Greek in order to benefit from it. Sunday school teachers and small group leaders would likely find it accessible and useful as well.

According to the publisher, the Gospel of Luke presents many unique pictures of Jesus. We see him in his Father’s house as a child; deliberately associating with the poor and the disreputable; and in communion with the Holy Spirit. We also see the larger picture of Jesus setting out resolutely for Jerusalem in order to fulfill God’s plan for the world.
With awareness of scholarly discussions and attentiveness to both the text and the reader, Leon Morris places the themes of Luke’s Gospel within the context of God’s plan for all people.
