Item description for The Gospel According to Matthew (Pillar New Testament Commentary) by Leon Morris...

"Morris's latest book fills a gaping hole in the shelf of New Testament commentaries. At last we have a work on Matthew that is worthy to take its place beside the major studies on the other Gospels. Its thoroughness, clarity, and theological sensitivity will make it a treasured resource for all students of the Bible".--David Allan Hubbvard, Fuller Theological Seminary.

Publishers Description
Part of the newly emerging PILLAR commentary series, this volume uncovers the meaning of Matthew's Gospel in eminently straightforward fashion. A perceptive introduction precedes Leon Morris's warm-hearted and thoughtful exposition of Matthew, "the book of the story of Jesus Christ." In order to get at what Matthew actually says, Morris supplies his own literal translation of the text. This commentary on Matthew is particularly valuable for its thoroughness, maturity, and evangelical viewpoint.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel According to Matthew (Pillar New Testament Commentary)?

Highly readable, Sound and Reliable   May 14, 2008
Next to the commetaries of Craig S. Keener, and D.A. Carson, I keep this book for constant reference. It is very accessible for a mainstream reader and has given me wonderful insights. This book is not as thorough as the work by Keener, but it has its own fine elements to offer. As I'm still engaged in studying it, I will probably have more to say later on. I am reviewing it now because I am a Christian novelist and my readers ask me for references. I recommend this book without reserve.---- I like the voice of the author very much, and look forward to learning more from him.---- Let me quote part of a paragraph (p. 15 of the hardcover) which is close to my heart: "In the last resort it appears that the authorship of this Gospel will remain in dispute. In my opinion there is more to be said for the apostle Matthew than recent scholarship commonly allows and more for Matthew than for any other candidate." Agreed, with humble thanks.
Among the Best and a Friend of Five Years  Mar 25, 2008
Starting with fifteen or commentaries five years ago when I started preaching through Matthew's Gospel, Morris has become a close friend. My copy has seen better days with tape, rips, and lots of ink, but each one points to appreciation. With one sermon left to go, I have to say that Carson and Morris sit on the top of the list. I commend them to you if you are looking for solid exegetical tools.

Here is Carson's work:The Expositor's Bible Commentary: Matthew, Mark, Luke (Volume 8)
Excellent Exposition of Matthew  Feb 4, 2007
Some commentaries on Matthew give you extensive exegesis with endless interactions with other scholars. They are very helpful, but sometimes the message of Matthew is muddled and muddied as a result.

That's why Leon Morris' commentary on Matthew is a treat. The emphasis is his terrific line by line interpretation of the text. He does interact with other scholars, but not so much that the force of his own interpretation is neglected.

He writes with an eye toward application. For example, in his introduction to Matthew 5:38-42, he notes that "we have a natural tendency to retaliate when anyone harms us. But Jesus eschews hitting back in all its forms.(p. 126)"

He explains Greek terms without getting too technical. In the section on parables (Matthew 13), he contends (page 333) that we would do better to learn what a parable is by looking at the way Jesus used it than by coming up with our definition.

And in Matthew 24-25, Morris seems to take the double fulfillment interpretation, that it applies both to the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 AD and to the future Second Coming of the Lord Jesus.

Davies and Allison have written the most detailed commentary on Matthew, and I use it regularly. But this commentary takes its place alongside Michael Wilkins in terms of sermon preparation value. It is easy to consult, and it explains the text plainly without getting lost in minute details.

An Excellent Commentary  Jun 27, 2006
Leon Morris' commentary on Matthew is one of the best I've read. Most commentaries are dull, boring, and bogged down with scholarly drivel. However, this commentary is readable, likeable, AND scholarly. I've found it to be beneficial as I prepare for sermons, Sunday school lessons, and for private devotions. All I can say is, "Well done Dr. Morris!"
Wonderful Commentary on Gospel of Matthew  May 14, 2003
This is a wonderful, expositional commentary on the text of the Gospel of Matthew. What sets this work apart from nearly everything else available is Morris' determination to exposit what Matthew has actually said and is trying to tell us, rather than to argue a new view on the whole Gospel, or interact with critical theories that most readers have never heard of (and many of which have either faded away or are in the process). This is a commentary every person in the church can access and appreciate. Morris wears his considerable learning lightly, so we get a lively interaction with the gospel itself, which cannot help but pay rich spiritual dividends for us all. Having used several available Evangelical commentaries, I am convinced that Morris is the best overall. It is not as scholarly as Carson, but it not as dry either. It is not as insightful as Blomberg in some places, but it is much fuller so that you really get feel for what Matthew is trying to say. I am probably biased since I am a fan of nearly all of Morris' work, but this is the first place I turn when preparing to preach or teach from Matthew.
