There is certainly no shortage today of commentary sets available to pastors, laymen, and students. These sets range from classic works to what seems to be a barrage of new efforts recently hitting the market.

This commentary is not strictly exegetical and is not academic, but David Platter provides an excellent commentary for devotional reading and as a help to sermon preparation. It aims absolutely Christ-centred, as the series promises, and gets to the heart of the text with application to the whole person. There are review questions for reflection and discussion. Highly recommended.

Beat devotional companion commentary series I've ever read. It's filled with stories and illustrations which make it readable, but include helpful outlining and summarizing that's extremely useful in teaching and remembering for yourself. Any of these books in this series is a perfect fit for small groups!

Reads as a sermon with a strong emphasis on the Great Commission. Ties back in to the parallels of Moses and the exodus beautifully, and dives into the Old Testament references well.

A great devotional commentary. Not exegetical, not verse-by-verse. But an easy and insightful way to read through Matthew. Reads like a good sermon.

“Man's greatest need, then, is not to try to clean his hands or fix his life on the outside; man's greatest need is a changed heart on the inside. Holiness begins in the heart, and only Jesus can produce this kind of change.” 3 likes
“Being a member of a local church is not very important to most professing Christians today. Church hopping and shopping are common in much of evangelicalism, as people are wary of committing themselves to a church. …It’s important for every Christian to be committed to a church. By doing so, we say to the church body, “If you wander from the Lord, I’m coming after you, and if I wander from the Lord, I want you to come after me.” This is the kind of care Jesus calls us to.” 1 likes
