Publishers Description The award-winning Expositor's Bible Commentary, now available in this handy softcover edition, has established itself as one of the leading and most practical evangelical commentaries. Written for pastors and Bible students, it is scholarly and comprehensive without being overly academic. The seventy-eight contributors of The Expositor's Bible Commentary are committed to the complete trustworthiness and full authority of the Bible. They come from the United States, Canada, England, Scotland, Australia, and New Zealand, and represent many denominations, including Anglican, Baptist, Brethren, Methodist, Nazarene, Presbyterian, and Reformed. In matters where marked differences of opinion exist, the contributors state their own convictions and deal fairly and without animosity with opposing views. The Expositor's Bible Commentary is based on the New International Version of the Bible, but may be used with any translation. Greek and Hebrew words have been transliterated to make the material accessible to readers unfamiliar with the biblical languages. Technical questions and textual issues are briefly dealt with in notes at the end of each section.

Reviews - What do customers think about Commentary-Matthew V1/Chap 1-12 (Expos Bible Comm)?
Best Treatment of the Olivet Discourse Jun 23, 2009
Carson's treatment of the Olivet discourse is excellent, and is the best antidote to the fashionable preterism making the rounds in Reformed circles. He argues persuasively that the "coming in clouds" language refers to the Parousia, not the destruction of Jerusalem. I am not entirely convinced that his split between 24:21 and 24:22 works, but it is definitely worth exploring.
Excellent Commentary and Scholarly Resource in Matthew (also available in Spanish) May 30, 2006
Excellent Commentary and Scholarly Resource in Matthew (also available in Spanish)
This is one of the best commentary and scholarly resource available today for the serious students of the Bible and teachers (also available in Spanish language). I have been very satisfied with the book overall, and my choice textbook for Matthew. I have adopted and used this book recently as a textbook for Matthew at Paul Theological Institute at Juarez, Mexico in May 2006, sponsored by KoMex (Rev. Kim) and Southwest Baptist Church (Rev. Chung).
Terrific guide to understanding Matthew Jul 6, 2004
If you read this commentary to get an insight into what scholars have said about the Gospel of Matthew, you will find it helpful.
But if your motivation is firstly to understand Matthew itself, you'll find this book even more useful.
Don Carson writes as an articulate pastor who loves God's Word and wants you to know and love it, too.
His Commentary on Matthew is one of his best books, and is well worth purchasing.
But if you want it for a bargain price, combined with several other excellent commentaries [and a few that are not so great] you can order the Expositors Bible Commentary 5.0 CD ROM from this site and also have a terrific commentary on Psalms by vanGemeren and a very good commentary on Revelation, etc.
In many ways the CD ROM format is more useful than a bunch of books.
Good and Dated, not Great and Recent Apr 28, 2003
This is a good semi-critical commentary on Matthew from an Evangelical perspective. I must confess that I was a little disappointed with this commentary since so many people speak so highly of it. It is certainly full, usually insightful and reliable. However, Carson spends too much space trying to refute either old or obscure theories which do not necessarily help anyone in understanding what Matthew has actually said. Relatedly, the book seems even more dated than its publishing date (mid 1980s) and does not deal with any of the more recent and intriguing scholarship on Matthew. In sum, the book needs to be heavily revised and updated to make it competitive with other more recent commentaries like those by Blomberg, Morris and Hagner.
Essential for Pastors, Teachers, and Students Sep 21, 2000
Carson has done it again! I have come to expect only first-rate exegesis, theological insight, and pastoral care from Carson. This commentary did not let me down in the slightest. (It is good that Zondervan decided to release the individual commentaries from the Expositor's series. In general, the quality and content of the series is disappointing, thought there are a few highlights.)
While not as rigorous as some commentaries, it is also not as cumbersome. Carson provides a nicely concise discussion of introductory issues (if you want more, consider the fabulous volume by R.T. France, "Matthew: Evangelist and Teacher" IVP). Even though I take issue with some of Carson's judgments (e.g. Matthew 24), I am never disappointed with his presentation of the issues or his proposed applications.
This commentary is the cream of evangelical scholarship. It is an essential addition to the libraries of pastors, teachers and students.
