Endorsements

This is biblical theology at its finest. Dr. Quarles is closely tethered to the text, attentive to allusions from the Old Testament, and unrelenting in his emphasis on the one-of-a-kind glory of Jesus as God. I commend this book very highly. It will stoke a fire in your heart and create a burning desire to herald the glories of Jesus from the treasures, new and old, in the gospel of Matthew.
-Jason Meyer,
Bethlehem Baptist Church

Using key Old Testament figures and themes as his framework, Charles Quarles summarizes very nicely Matthew's main theological ideas. The book is marked by an admirable combination of biblical exposition and practical application.
-Douglas J. Moo,
Wheaton College

An up-to-the-minute, mid-range, pastorally focused collection of Explorations in Biblical Theology.
-J. I. Packer,
Regent College

Neither superficial nor highly technical.... Reformed theology as it is most helpfully taught.

Editorial Reviews

Here is a work that focuses well on how Matthew presents Jesus. It is a biblical theology seen through christological glasses that see in Jesus' shadow Moses, David, Abraham, Israel, and the creation. It shows well how Jesus' story is ultimately important to all of us. That is well worth reflection in the directions Quarles points us, filling a need those who study Matthew can be grateful now has been filled.
We can be grateful that Quarles has given us an intellectual and theological feast. The work is written with wonderful clarity so that the message is accessible to laypeople. Still, the message of the book isn’t simplistic. Scholars and students will be challenged by the exegetical and theological depth of Matthew’s theology. Nor does Quarles simply rehearse what Matthew teaches about Jesus. He exults in it. He leads us to worship. The book has a devotional and spiritual dimension which helps readers to see Jesus. What more could a reader ask for?
"A THEOLOGY OF MATTHEW is a superb treatment of important theological themes in the first gospel. Carefully researched and written in a scholarly fashion, the book is also an easy and enjoyable read that the layperson could engage with great profit. That is a remarkable feet, and Charles Quarles has accomplished it with excellence!"
“This is biblical theology at its finest. Dr. Quarles is closely tethered to the text, attentive to allusions from the Old Testament, and unrelenting in his emphasis on the one-of-a-kind glory of Jesus as God. I commend this book very highly. It will stoke a fire in your heart and create a burning desire to herald the glories of Jesus from the treasures, new and old, in the gospel of Matthew.”
Charles L. Quarles has given us an impressive and first-rate biblical-theological survey of Matthew. It stands out for its stunning clarity and organization, and for the perceptive ways in which it relates Matthew to the Old Testament. Its insights into the Gospel will both stimulate the scholar and inform the general reader. A Theology of Matthew promises to be a standard resource for evangelical Matthean studies for some time.
