Format: Hardcover
There are more technical and lengthy commentaries on Matthew's gospel, and there are shorter commentaries, but this is the one I reach for most.
Dr. Blomberg is a respected and gentle scholar who writes with warmth and yet packs insight into each paragraph. Interaction with other scholars are kept to the footnotes which makes this a joy to read, a fascinating (yet reliable) description of "what happened" to Jesus, a valuable resource for the Sunday School teacher and a work which now must certainly be consulted regarding any academic research.
A welcome addition in today's confusing religious world.

15 of 18 people found the following review helpful By Kyle Lassiter on March 2, 2004
Format: Hardcover
Dr. Blomberg is willing to take on the hard passages in a commentary that is reasonable in length, but comprehensive in coverage. Dr. Blomberg does not hesitate to render interpretations that other commentators shy away from, such as Matthew 11:12. If you need a commentary on Matthew and this one is not in your library you are missing something. (Full Disclosure; I was a student of Dr. Blomberg's in graduate school, though I was not the sharpest knife in the Greek drawer.)

Just enough, not too wordy. Not too theological but very practical. Good for a study or for preaching through a series.

Format: Hardcover
Blomberg's one volume commentary not only is abreast of current scholarship but shows a a deep concern for the poor and needy which is surely the correct social setting for Jesus and Matthew. The books gives in a brief compass helpful insights on many difficult texts.

As a person who has begun to read through scripture by reading an adjoining commentary I have picked up a few different types of commentarys (Holman's; another on Daniel that I can't remember; a "Be" commentary; and previous New American commentaries). I am definitely not someone who is immersed in or experienced with a real wide variety, but I am getting to know what I am looking for in increasing my experience with and understanding of biblical scriptures. While the Holman I used (and liked) was perhaps less a commentary and more a life application and another was almost mostly concerned with syntax and phrasing (very technical when dealing with the language) I have found that Blomberg's commentary (not necessarily so with others in the New American series), while addressing technical issues always, devotes more space to discussing and explaining what is being said within the scripture itself.

Along the way Blomberg occasionally stops and offers a brief thought on how the application of a particular scripture is usually lacking its life lived out in our current cultural milieu. He also addresses frequently contentious or supposedly problematic sections, summarizing and breifly discussing other viewpoints (both strengths and weaknesses balanced against other scripture), before concluding with his determination and support. While informative perhaps what I've found most important is that he does not get distracted/ stuck on either of these issues and he continues to maintain his focus on the scripture and (via exegesis) what messages are being conveyed.
