    Although my daughter and I have completed several of the Genesis to Revelation studies and like the series, we were disappointed with Matthew. In the "Dimension Three: What Does the Bible Mean to Me?" sections, Luccock often forgets to ask a question for readers to answer thoughtfully. Instead, he writes a lengthy discourse, interpreting for readers of Matthew and assuming that all readers will think as he does. In multiple places in the study of Matthew, Luccock's wording is awkward or confusing. Perhaps his language reveals an inclination to doubt the validity of scripture. For example, the stories of Jesus' ancestry, birth, and flight to Egypt "were told to report the wonderful and miraculous things people believed happened at the birth of the Messiah" (5).

    "According to the tradition, Jesus was the son of Joseph's virgin wife. Apparently this inconsistency [in giving Joseph's genealogy for Jesus] does not trouble Matthew" (5-6).

    "Let us beware of finding easy answers to evil, or even any answers at all. Perhaps the whole Gospel of Matthew will help us find ways of dealing with it" (9).

    "We do not have any record that they [Simon, Andrew, James, and John] were morally bad at the time they were called" (14).

    "This statement seems at first reading to be about as unrealistic as anyone can get" (25): I have no idea what "this" is referring to from Matthew 6:25-34.

    Regarding Matthew 24:5-8, Luccock writes, "Whether the answer comes from Jesus or an anonymous writer of the apocalypse need not concern us" (89).

    If you purchase this book, don't expect the same quality that you will find in other books in the series. Matthew: Being Discipled by Jesus, written by Eyre, is of higher quality.

    My Bible study has found this book very helpful. We were reading Matthew before and this guide has helped us understand much more. We are all baby Christians.

    This bible study guide is a very good and practicle guide. It's broken into three parts and the third part is where the reader gets to apply what they've read to their life. The third section really helped me understand what the bible was saying for me.
