Item description for The Gospel of Matthew: Commentary, Notes and Study Questions (The Ignatius Catholic Study Bible) by Scott Hahn & Curtis Mitchell...

Based on the Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition, this volume leads readers through a penetrating study of the Gospel of Matthew, using the biblical text itself and the Church's own guidelines for understanding the Bible. Ample notes accompany each page, providing fresh insights and commentary by renowned Bible teachers Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch, as well as time-tested interpretations from the Fathers of the Church. These helpful study notes make explicit what St. Matthew often assumes. Or they provide rich historical, cultural, geographical or theological information pertinent to the Gospel information that bridges the distance between the biblical world and our own. The Ignatius Study Bible also includes Topical Essays, Word Studies and Charts. The Topical Essays explore the major themes of Matthew's Gospel, often relating them to the doctrines of the Church. The Word Studies explain the background to important Bible terms, while the Charts summarize crucial biblical information "at a glance". Each page also includes an easy-to-use Cross-Reference Section that runs between the biblical text at the top of the page and the annotations at the bottom. Study Questions are provided for each chapter of the Gospel that can deepen your personal study of God's Holy Word. There is also an introductory essay covering questions of authorship, date, destination, structure and themes. An outline of Matthew's Gospel and several maps are also included.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Gospel of Matthew: Commentary, Notes and Study Questions (The Ignatius Catholic Study Bible)?

Excellent Book  Mar 11, 2008
Scott Hahn has presented this in a way so easy to understand. It affords a whole new view of the Gospel
Love it, I want the whole thing :)  Dec 10, 2007
WONDERFUL! I'd love to have the entire Bible, and hope it is available soon.

(I'd really appreciate both an electronic version for my PDA, AND a large-print bound edition.)
Good resources inaccessible to all  Oct 4, 2007
These Bible study resources (Ignatius series) are excellect. The print is so small, however, that those with even mild eye challenges cannot use the guides without magnification. They ought to correct this.
Awesome  Jan 9, 2007
This is a great study bible series. It is accessible yet scholarly. The questions in the review section are not just for intellectual understading, but also serious spiritual growth. For instance, the study questions on Christ's baptism include the editors asking us when we have been like the scribes and pharisees challenged by St. John the Baptist.

This little study bible has been awesome for my spiritual growth and I recommend it without reservation.

However, one can always offer criticism. I concur to some degree with an earlier reviewer with my one criticism: only Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch are involved in the project. But I am conflicted about this criticism.

On the one hand a Catholic study bible ought to reflect a broader range of scholarship. As great as Dr. Hahn is, there are orthodox and solid Catholic theologians who disagree with him on some important points.

On the other hadn, a little more than a century ago in the late 1800's, the great Rev. Haydock published his edition of the Douay Rheims with only his (gigantic) commentary and it is one of the greatest Catholic bible commentaries of all time. Therefore an individual Catholic commentary is definitely possible.

There is a diverse and wonderful commentary in English based on the RSV and that is the Navarre bible (outstanding). I don't think Hahn and Mitch envision a volume that will compete with the Navarre, but rather one that is more accessible for bible study and personal spiritual growth for the laity. If one is going to buy a multi-volume Catholic commentary, I think the Navarre is the one to get; but it is expensive, and lacks the great study questions of these little volumes.

In short, I recommend this commentary series highly. While it may lack a breadth of scholarly opinion it is orthodox and helps with spiritual growth.
A Great Start  Feb 2, 2003
Wow. A Catholic study Bible which doesn't seem dry and academic. That's a first. Congratulations to all involved on an impressive job. I concur with another reviewer's comments: it needs bigger margins. Otherwise, a nice design. I am glad the authors names are NOT on the cover, and I hope they include a few essays from other experts to give it a broader base. It would be ironic if Catholics--known for bashing Protestants as followers of individuals--started being seen toting around The Scott Hahn Study Bible.

Also, as to printing the final version, Oxford Press would be a good choice--their work is always first class. I'm not sure a smaller press like Ignatius can pull it off; Crossway's mediocre printing of the ESV should serve as a cautionary sfenario.
