David KilpatrickNorth Syracuse, NYAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5February 2, 2008David KilpatrickNorth Syracuse, NYAge: 45-54Gender: maleI've already reviewed other forms of this (hardcover, soft cover, individual volumes, the three volumes together), so I won't repeat it here. I've read the entire introduction and used this commentary for the birth narratives and the Sermon on the Mount. The introduction was magnificent. I had to keep reminding myself that I wasn't reading the work of an evangelical. Davies and Allison are theological moderates (in my estimation), but those of a conservative bent have nothing to fear from their extensive introduction. Their handling of the relationship between the synoptics is excellent. They support Markan priority with a very strong case. The fact that they are not conservative shows up in the birth narratives, so don't let that phase you. Overall their treatment of Matthew is extremely well done and if you can afford this, get the set. When I check several commentaries, I always leave theirs for last because I usually get a very good treatment of the questions I'm asking. Occasionally, they seem to fall flat, but not too often. Also, there's an ad nauseum degree of coverage of literary analysis, but you can easily read around it. Their coverage of the Sermon on the Mount is super.
