She proposes the structure of Matthew's Gospel as a story. I found the story structure very refresing. Yes, I do recommend this volume. That I find the commentary refreshing has suggested my choice of the work fresh.
Her work as the high quality of scholarhship and writing that charactgerizes the Collegeville Series.
I also find her commentary helpful for homily preparation.
Of course, she refuses to use masculine pronouns for God. She denies Christ His self-applied title "Son of Man", replacing it with "Son of Humanity" and then "the Human One". She uses "Creator" to avoid referring to the Father as such. She seems to have invented a fourth person of the Trinity, whom she dubs "Woman Wisdom" and mentions often. She makes bizarre, unsupported assertions, such as that St. Peter's mother-in-law was probably a major figure in the early Church (p. 52). She sees the woman who annoints Jesus head as acting as "priest and prophet" (p.128), not how Jesus interprets her action. She stresses Peter's "utter failure" and makes the women at the tomb the primary evangelists of the gospel, even according them the title "apostles" (p. 144).
She writes (p. 60), "Jesus himself likely understood his mission to be only for the renewal of his own people, while his followers subsequently understood it as intended for Gentiles as well." This is hardly reconcilable with the Church's dogma that Jesus willingly laid down His life for the sins of all mankind.Read more ›
