This, and the second volume on Matthew 14-28, is an excellent commentary; detailed, critical, balanced, and comprehensive. In my opinion it is the best commentary at present of Matthew's Gospel, and stands at the head of many other good commentary. I use it as required reading for a graduate course I teach in the Synoptic Gospels.

The author expounds the text from a generally conservative perspective. He does often (and at significant points) depart from traditional evangelical interpretations, but he remains within the broad evangelical tradition. The work is strong on considering structure, but he can sometimes get bogged down in source-critical issues. He argues for Markan priority and sensus plenior fulfillment of Old Testament quotations. It generally considers all the significant issues in interpretation of the text and provides valuable insight, though some more conservative readers may be unsatisfied with some of his conclusions. Sometimes his discussion of interpretive problems is disappointing brief.

I bought this and its companion volume to research "fulfillment theology," especially what Matthew meant by saying Jesus has come to "fulfil" the Law and the Prophets. (5:17) I've written a couple books on the subject (Jesus and the Religions of Man; How Jesus fulfills the Chinese Culture) and am now doing a dissertation exploring it in more depth; and this is the commentary I've found most useful so far. (Allison & Davies are also helpful, as another reviewer said; their analysis of the Sermon on the Mount is very interesting; but I found them unreasonably skeptical a lot of the time.)

What I like about this commentary is its clarity and general good sense. Coming from a comparative or history of religions background, rather than New Testament studies, I'm also using these two volumes to teach myself NT Greek, which works pretty well. (Probably more than 70% of new vocabulary is explained, so I only need to look up 20-30%.) Fulfillment is one of Matthew's most pervasive themes, and it's been an exciting adventure to trace it systematically through the Gospel, and see how Matthew applies it implicitly to Gentile cultures at times, with the help of Hagner and other commentators.

I just finished using this in studying to preach and it has been invaluable to me. I prefer it over the other two scholarly commentaries I've been reading in Matthew.
