Item description for Matthew: The Book of Mercy by Megan McKenna...

Overview
Known as a scribe, minor tax collector, and public sinner, Matthew sought to create an identity for the fledgling Christian community as it struggled against persecution by the Romans and ostracism by the Jewish leadership. In her new book, well-known author and master storyteller Megan McKenna shows how this identity is forged of forgiveness, reconciliation and atonement. What characterizes Matthew's church is Jesus as the Mercy of God, as mercy shared. "Matthew's community becomes the presence of the kingdom of heaven on earth - the presence of God's mercy on earth." In this masterful commentary, McKenna shows that, as it did for that early Jewish community of Christians, Matthew's gospel offers balm and hope for the Church today.

Reviews - What do customers think about Matthew: The Book of Mercy?

FORGIVE US......AS WE FORGIVE.....  Jul 13, 2008
Just by the crtical usage of forgiveness in the Our Father of Matthew's Gospel, as opposed to the lack reference to forgiveness in the Our Father In the Luckan Version Forgiveness and mercy are a crucial in thes Gospel of the New Moses, Jesus the Lord.
 
Matthew: The Book of Mercy  May 31, 2008
Matthew: the Book of Mercy has proven to be an excellent, thought provoking scripture commentary. Currently a group of 15 adults are participating in a scripture spirituality group that is three pronged: study, prayer and conversation. Each person comes prepared with having read and journaled in response to one or more of the assigned chapter
questions. It's a potential conversion experience and much needed in light of adult scripture illiteracy.
 
Excellent commentary on Matthew  Dec 3, 2007
I have enjoyed all of Megan McKenna's books and this one did not disappooint me. I especially enjoy the stories that are intertwined with the commentary to give us examples and illustrations. Matthew doesn't put his own personality and opinions into this gospel for the focus is on Jesus. He learned much as JEsus' disciple and now McKenna helps us delve deep into these writings to appreciate the richness of the wisdom.
