The Gospel of Matthew, said James Montgomery Boice, is "the first of the gospels, the longest, the most Jewish, the most evangelistic and, in many ways, the most compelling. To some people, now as well as then, Matthew is the most important book ever written." This two-volume expositional commentary on one of the Bible's most powerful books integrates rigorous scholarship and clear communication. Boice not only explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and section by section, he relates the text's concerns to the world in which we live, the life of the church, and the realities of the Christian life. Based on messages preached at Philadelphia's world-renowned Tenth Presbyterian Church, The Gospel of Matthew displays Dr. Boice's hallmark blend of thoughtful interpretation and contemporary insight for daily living. It will appeal to a wide range of readers, from serious Bible students to interested laypersons.
