The type is easy to read.

Their choice of font and layout is excellent - the serifed font for the main body of text is very readable, as is the spacing.

Again, Osborne lands on the majority view, but has good reasons to do so.

In my preaching, research, and personal study, I have benefitted greatly from numerous scholarly commentaries. One new budding commentary series is the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament (ZECNT), which promises 20 volumes by evangelical scholars on all the books of the NT. I was blessed to receive a review copy* of one of the latest volumes from the folks at Zondervan Academic and koinonia: Matthew by Grant Osborne. Osborne, professor of New Testament at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School, is also the author of such works as The Hermeneutical Spiral and Revelation in the Baker Exegetical Commentary series. I was excited to start reading through this brand new, 1,152 page commentary on the book of the Bible that God really used to draw me close to him for the first time. I still remember leafing through the Gospel of Matthew with wonder as I read about Jesus. As I spent time in Matthew and in the commentary, I was once again blessed to sit in God's Word and ponder Jesus. Let me tell you right off the bat - I really like this new series and Osborne's volume.

About the ZECNT

Anyone who uses Bible commentaries with any regularity knows that there are a plethora of series out there, from every imaginable viewpoint and for the whole spectrum of possible audiences (uber-Bible nerd to regular Joe/Jill). One might ask, "Why another commentary series?" Clinton Arnold answers that question in the Series Introduction: This is a series for pastors and teachers who are looking for a "commentary series based on the Greek text.

Format: Hardcover
My first impression is that this tome means business as it weighs in at 4.5 pounds. Of course, Matthew is 28 chapters, so it takes some space to cover all of it. The binding is outstanding. I can open the book up to any page and it will stay open to that page. This may not seem like a big deal until you try to type notes while reading. It's a little thing that I've grown to appreciate with well-made books. The paper has a nice thickness to it with very little ghosting. The serif font used for the majority of the text is very readable, even in the footnotes.

The book begins with an introduction explaining issues of authorship, sources, Matthew's use of the OT, etc. It also has an exegetical outline of the whole book, which is very handy if you plan on preaching through Matthew. The rest of the book is broken up into 122 chapters that are subsets of this major outline. It ends with a section on the theology of Matthew.

Each chapter begins with a paragraph on the literary context of the pericope, though chapters before major passages have an introduction to the whole section. For example, at the start of Matthew 24 there is an introduction to the Olivet Discourse in Matthew 24:1-25:46. After the literary context there is a chart showing where this passage falls in the major outline with a good use of bold type. A few sentences describe the "main idea" for the passage, which is of course important if you plan to preach expository sermons. Each section is translated into English, but what's really nice is how this is done. The English translation is given in block outline form so you can follow the flow of the passage. On the right are labels for each clause in each verse.

6 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Kevin M. Fiske on December 20, 2010
Format: Hardcover
Several weeks ago, Zondervan Academic's blog, "Koinonia", announced a blog tour featuring some of the newly released volumes in the Zondervan Exegetical Commentary on the New Testament series. Through their generosity, I received a review copy of Grant Osborne's volume on Matthew.

It's my hope that this brief review will provide the reader with some basic information about the series, as well as the "Matthew" volume in particular, hoping that one will be able to make a good assessment as to whether the "Matthew" volume would be of general benefit to personal study and/or pastoral preparation.

General Remarks

I'm excited about the volumes in this series, as the ZECNT series is proving to be solidly evangelical, exegetically helpful, academically credible, and designed with the pastor-teacher in mind.

If grades were given out solely in terms of layout, construction, and design, the ZECNT would score very highly. This commentary is not small by any means (1154 pages), but its hardcover construction and binding are of great quality for such a sizeable book. The layout and design are clear and logical, with a very readable typeset.

Textually speaking, the commentary series, as a whole, utilizes 7 different components for the analysis of each pericope:

Literary Context
Each pericope is considered in light of how it functions within the book as a whole.

Main Idea
An incredibly helpful 1-2 sentence summary of the "big idea" of each pericope.

Translation and Graphical Layout
The commentator provides his translation of the Greek text. This part is particularly helpful for visualizing the interconnectedness and flow of the text, as each section is displayed with each clause or phrase on it's own line.
