Jamie MGender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5FantasticJanuary 11, 2014Jamie MGender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5A solid, dependable, commentary with a wealth of insight. One can easily read Morris and glean significant details without getting bogged down in unduly technical or academic discussions. Morris ranks in the top 3 commentaries on Matthew, and compared to Carson and Blomberg I like Morris' work the best. If you just want a reference work, get Carson. If you want a reference work that you can sit back and enjoy reading, get Morris.

David KilpatrickNorth Syracuse, NYAge: 45-54Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5June 6, 2009David KilpatrickNorth Syracuse, NYAge: 45-54Gender: maleI feel bad giving a Leon Morris book only 2 1/2 stars. His commentary on John is outstanding. However, this commentary on Matthew is not in the same category at all. I was very disappointed. As other reviewers said, Morris approaches the text reverently, however, it often reads like a connected set of word studies. The way he defines words in the text becomes very monotonous. This lacks the sparkle and warmth of his other commentaries. France's NIC would be a better choice, as would Carson's EBC.
Jeffrey Lockwood5 Stars Out Of 5May 24, 2003Jeffrey LockwoodWhat a fantastic commentary by Dr. Morris. Technical but very readable. I love his translation of the Greek text, as it brings out the meaning of what Matthew was trying to get across. I thoroughly enjoyed it and my knowledge of the Gospel of Matthew has been greatly enhanced. 5 out of 5 was not high enough!
Raul Goulden4 Stars Out Of 5September 1, 2001Raul GouldenI'm pleased to have it in my library. On the positive side I am pleased to have the extensive footnotes he has included. On the negative side, I don't think his writing style is very engaging. It is a good, and thorough Evangelical commentary.
