Editorial Reviews

Review

Reed's concise guide is an engaging distillation of the last two decades of research on the Gospel of Matthew; it promises to be a valuable aid to a wide variety of students of the gospel.
Catholic Books Review


Barbara Reid proves to be a helpful and informed guide to Matthew’s Gospel. With an eye on both the big picture as well as on significant details, she supplies clarifying information and insightful commentary. The resulting reading illumines both the gospel text and the tasks and challenges of contemporary discipleship.

Sr. Barabara Ried has written a fresh commentary on St. Matthew's Gospel. She give a concise summary of several common viewpoints: Jesus as the New Moses, The Five Discourses, Jesus, Messiah as fulfillment of the Prohpets.

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.

Worse than useless. That is, when not stating the obvious, it tends to be more often problematic than helpful. It is far less concerned with facilitating a Catholic understanding of the gospel than with promoting the agenda of the author, who reveals her strong commitment to feminism and liberation theology. She displays an obsession with gender, empowerment and systemic injustice. Her faults range from annoying peccadilos to loopy theories to apparent heresy.

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.
