The mature fruit that is produced through years of ministry in the academy and the church is found in this volume. Readers will surely harvest an abundance of exegetical, theological, and practical insights for Christian life and ministry. This commentary is a must read for all who study the Gospel of Matthew.
This is not a standard commentary. It is Matthew taught vividly as God's word. Doriani deploys the fruit of wide reading, lively imagination, pastoral savvy, deep learning, native wit, and personal commitment. He draws the reader into the history of Matthew's day. He draws out the teaching, commands, wisdom, and saving work of Jesus the Son of God. If more preaching were like this, Christian faith and life in congregations of all backgrounds and sizes would benefit greatly. And more of the lost would join the ranks of Jesus' disciplesthe great goal of this great Gospel.
Oh the joy of reading a commentary with the roots of an informed mind and the wings of an enflamed heart! Dan Dorianis two volume exposition of Matthew, in the REC series, is as refreshing as it is well researched. But that is just what I would expect from one of the finest pastor-scholars in the evangelical world. Dans keen understanding of the gospel of the kingdom and his great love for the gospel of Gods grace permeate this faithful and practical presentation of the person and work of Jesus according to Matthew. What a great gift for pastor and parishioner alike!
