Reviews - What do customers think about Matthew (NIV New American Commentary)?
Great Commentary on Matthew Mar 3, 2004
Dr. Blomberg is willing to take on the hard passages in a commentary that is reasonable in length, but comprehensive in coverage. Dr. Blomberg does not hesitate to render interpretations that other commentators shy away from, such as Matthew 11:12. If you need a commentary on Matthew and this one is not in your library you are missing something. (Full Disclosure; I was a student of Dr. Blomberg's in graduate school, though I was not the sharpest knife in the Greek drawer.)
amazingly useful for all readers May 29, 2002
There are more technical and lengthy commentaries on Matthew's gospel, and there are shorter commentaries, but this is the one I reach for most.
Dr. Blomberg is a respected and gentle scholar who writes with warmth and yet packs insight into each paragraph. Interaction with other scholars are kept to the footnotes which makes this a joy to read, a fascinating (yet reliable) description of "what happened" to Jesus, a valuable resource for the Sunday School teacher and a work which now must certainly be consulted regarding any academic research.
A welcome addition in today's confusing religious world.
Best short commentary on Matthew in English Dec 12, 1998
Blomberg's one volume commentary not only is abreast of current scholarship but shows a a deep concern for the poor and needy which is surely the correct social setting for Jesus and Matthew. The books gives in a brief compass helpful insights on many difficult texts.
