Audible Editor Reviews

Dr. Bill Creasy of Logos Bible Study uses a literary, historical approach to examine and enliven the bible for modern listeners. Dr. Creasy draws on his studies, travels, and personal anecdotes to depict a vivid picture of the works of scripture. Somewhere between a sermon and a college lecture, he delivers these audiobooks with authority but a pleasantly friendly voice and a touch of fun, using contemporary references.

Luke, as Dr. Creasy describes him was a physician, gentile, master rhetorician, and the only gospel writer to give unique voices other than his own and Jesus’ to characters in the story. Comparing it to Huckleberry Finn, Creasy discusses this and other unique stylistic choices as well Luke’s context in history and among within scripture.

Publisher's Summary

Luke is a Gentile writing for a particular person, another Gentile named Theophilus. In his Gospel, Luke provides a detailed and orderly account of the life and ministry of Jesus. Although Matthew, Mark, and Luke draw from many of the same sources for their material, each Gospel writer adapts his material for his particular audience and purpose. Luke presents his material in a brilliant prose style, as he creates a specific voice for his narrator and specific, identifiable voices for his characters. Join Logos Bible Study’s Dr. Bill Creasy as he explores Luke with gifted storytelling and illuminating discussion.

    "Excellent Bible Study"

    I also posted this on Amazon.com. This series contains the audio from class lectures by Dr. Bill Creasy.

    Dr. Creasy covers each book verse-by-verse, providing context to the material by explaining other passages in the Bible that may relate to a passage under study, with descriptions of corresponding historical events and the geography and their relationship to the passage, as well as anecdotes from his travels or study. I find it extremely helpful to study the Bible in context with geography and history.

    As explained in the opening lesson on Genesis, this study starts with Genesis in the Old Testament, then moves to Matthew in the New Testament, then Exodus and Leviticus in the Old Testament, then back to Mark in the New Testament, and so on. Dr. Creasy does this because 1) if covered in weekly segments, as done in his class, it would be in year 5 before he got to Matthew, and 2) to help show the relationship between Old Testament and New Testament.

    Luke is the Seventh in the Logos Bible Study series, preceded by Numbers and followed by Deuteronomy. Luke has 24 chapters, and the study is comprised of 23 lessons. Total time - 17 hours, 2 minutes.

    "Great lecture series! "

    This is another great lecture series from Dr. Bill Creasy. He is always incredibly insightful and engaging. He often supplements the material with personal stories which are relevant and interesting. He has taken several trips to Israel and the Middle East where he visits the locations depicted in the Bible and he shares those first hand accounts which enables him to take you back to that point in time that the scripture is talking about.
