Reviews - What do customers think about Matthew (Westminster Bible Companion)?

The most helpful commenary on Matthew that I own  Apr 19, 2005
Quite simply, this is the freshest, most helpful, most thoughtful, most poetically written commentary on Matthew I have seen. This is not an exhaustive commentary, by any means, but it will certainly guide you to a deeper understanding of Matthew's telling of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I highly recommend it for preachers and teachers alike.
 
Excellent resource  Nov 14, 2002
This is my favorite resource when preaching or teaching Matthew, as it was also for my preaching buddies who recommended it to me. Dr. Long is succinct, to the point, historically and exegetically informed, and his turn of phrase is frequently poetic and beautiful. It's nice to know there's a dependable, familiar friend in my library to pull off the shelf when Matthew comes up in the Lectionary. Grace and peace to you all.
