This is not quite as good as the previous books I've gotten in the series (The Gospel of Mark, Corinthians I and II). Partway through I began feeling the way Homer Simpson did about the Bible, "What a preachy book!"

It occurred to me that it was because these authors focus primarily on the connections Matthew made with Old Testament scripture and on Christ's struggles with the Pharisees. Aside from specific sections "for reflection" there is scant focus on Christ's huma
This is a great commentary on the Gospel of Matthew. The format is great. The insights are great. The sections are broken up nicely. I'm reserving my five star rating for Bernard Orchard's commentary (A Catholic Commentary on Holy Scripture).
I've started reading a section of this commentary each day and I've found it to be very worthwhile. There's a wealth of information presented in an easy to read way, and it has opened up St Matthew's Gospel and revealed some unseen nuances and details that have added a lot to my reading and understanding of the Gospel. I'd highly recommend this book.

More a reference book than a 'read-through'. Excellent presentation and commentary. I especially like the way the chapters align with the schedule of liturgical readings for the year of Matthew.

Good resource for deepening my practice of Lectio Divina
I find these a wonderful reference for understanding The Gospel of Matthew. Excellent reading. References for the other books of the Bible that pertain to the various chapters are included. I would like to read other books in this series.
