From the Inside Flap
This commentary on the Gospel of Matthew displays James Montgomery Boice's trademark blend of thoughtful interpretation and contemporary insight for daily living. It also contains never-before-published material.
Boice highlights and explains Matthew's unique perspective on Jesus as the Jewish King and Savior who died for everyone. Boice also comments in the introduction, "Is the Book of Matthew relevant today? It certainly is. In a largely secular age, as ours is, we need to know that Jesus is truly God's King. In a day of nominal Christianity, we need to hear Christ's call to 'follow me.' "
The expositions, which were first preached by Dr. Boice at Tenth Presbyterian Church and on broadcasts of The Bible Study Hour, are ideal models for preachers and excellent resources for teachers of classes and small groups.
James Montgomery Boice (1938-2000) was president and cofounder of the Alliance of Confessing Evangelicals, the parent organization of The Bible Study Hour. He was the senior pastor of Philadelphia's historic Tenth Presbyterian Church and wrote or --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
From the Back Cover
The Gospel of Matthew, said James Montgomery Boice, is "the first of the Gospels, the longest, the most Jewish, the most evangelistic, and, in many ways, the most compelling."
This two-volume expositional and inspirational commentary on the Book of Matthew integrates rigorous scholarship and clear communication. It will inform and help a wide range of readers--from serious Bible students to interested laypersons--understand and apply the truths found in the text.
Both volumes deal with Matthew's emphasis on Jesus as the Messiah or King of Israel. Topics in volume 1, The King and His Kingdom, include:
"The Coming of the King"(1:1-4:25)
"The Sermon on the Mount" (5:1-7:29)
"The Power of the Kingdom" (8:1---10:42)
"Is Jesus Really God's King?" (11:1-12:50)
"The Parables of the Kingdom" (13:1-13:58)
"The Withdrawal of the King"(14:1-17:27)
Boice not only explains the meaning of the text verse by verse and section by section, he also relates the text's concerns to the world in which we live, the life of the church, and the realities of the Christian life. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

James Boice's explanations are very clear. In many instances he presents different points of view/interpretation of different passages. He will explain them and then give the one that he feels is the most accurate interpretation along with his reasons. To me, they make sense.
I know have a much better feel and understanding of this gospel and even a better understanding of the other three. Boice goes into detail in comparing and even explaining things that were not in the others but were in Matthew or the other way where they were in Matthew but not in the other three or different wording. He ties things together and makes them clear at least for me.
I plan on buy more of his books. His style related well to me and I was able to understand it. For me, this and the second book are 5 star books.
