"Luke the historian, pastoral theologian, and literary craftsman has found a splendid match in Fr. Gadenz. This commentary effortlessly presents the fruits of historical-critical scholarship alongside theological and pastoral instruction from the earliest Church Fathers through Benedict XVI. Anyone who wishes to understand the historical and theological contents of the Gospel of Luke will find profound insight here, expressed in a superbly succinct and readable style."
--Matthew Levering, Mundelein Seminary

"I have been waiting years for Fr. Gadenz to publish a commentary on the Gospel of Luke. His insights into the unique elements of this Gospel, reflecting not only his careful scholarship but also his decades of experience as a gifted homilist and zealous pastor of souls, both enlivened my preaching throughout the Year of Mercy and brought new depth to my own encounter with the Christ who challenges us to be merciful as our Heavenly Father is merciful. I am thrilled by the publication of this volume, which is both comprehensible and accessible, and I will be recommending it wholeheartedly."
--Bernard Hebda, Archbishop of Saint Paul and Minneapolis

"Fr. Pablo Gadenz's commentary on Luke is the work of a master exegete. It seamlessly synthesizes the most recent results of contemporary exegesis with key insights from the living tradition of the Church. The result is an elegantly written and remarkably informative study of the Gospel that has been called 'the most beautiful book ever written.'"
--Brant Pitre, Augustine Institute; author of Jesus and the Last Supper

Praise for the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture

"By bringing together historical background, exegetical interpretation, Church tradition, theological reflection, and pastoral application, this series promises to enkindle thoughtful discussion about the implications of the New Testament for lived Christian faith in the Church today. Its accessible format and multi-angled approach offer a model for teaching and ministry."
--Katherine Hayes, Seminary of the Immaculate Conception
