    This review was written for Matthew.
    I purchased this book to use along with our weekly bible survey of the book of Matthew. A lot of helpful information will be passed on to our bible class. It's a great resource book and I am very happy to have this copy in my collection.

    Thanking Christain Books for the great pricing....

    This review was written for Matthew.
    "Matthew" is a Bible commentary on the book of Matthew with a focus on the background context for the verses. The background information was cultural, historical, and geographical and much of it was based on ancient literature and archaeological discoveries. The actual ancient sources were quoted and their relevance explained, which I liked better than the vague summaries or paraphrases that I usually come across.

    The commentary moved through Matthew in order. Sidebar articles supplemented the commentary in the main text. There were many full-color, easy-to-read and -understand maps, charts, and timelines. The many full-color pictures illustrated the commentary giving an excellent idea of what a thing, place, or activity was like at the time of Jesus.

    The author usually gave the information and let the reader draw their own theological conclusions, which I appreciated. Overall, I found the information useful and interesting. Though written with a slightly more scholarly tone than some lay-level background commentaries, I'd still highly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning more about the background context of Jesus' life and teachings.

    This commentary has some great pictures but I found very little help with my sermon preparation. This is more like a bible handbook.

    This book had great information on historical and sociological background for book of Matthew. It should be used in conjunction with theological text. Lots of great maps and photos.
