From the Back Cover
Part of the newly emerging PILLAR commentary series, this volume uncovers the meaning of Matthew's Gospel in eminently straightforward fashion. A perceptive introduction precedes Leon Morris's warm-hearted and thoughtful exposition of Matthew, "the book of the story of Jesus Christ". In order to get at what Matthew actually says, Morris supplies his own literal translation of the text. This commentary on Matthew is particularly valuable for its thoroughness, maturity, and evangelical viewpoint.

This is a commentary which is clear, feels good, and is easy to use.
The author is aware of the issues, he is not too technical, but seldom misses things of importance; and typical of Leon Morris—he is a pleasure to read.
As a conservative scholar, he often puts in comments and addresses issues, that others seem afraid or reluctant to address thoroughly. For example, he deals boldly, graciously and most helpfully with the doctrine of eternal punishment, including a rare but valuable quote from H. P. Hamann's commentary on Matthew.
He stays close to the text, and has interesting insights to treasure. He is an Australian scholar, recognised globally as a fine teacher of the Word of God. His other important works, including his excellent studies and findings on 'propitiation' have given him a rich comprehensive background from which to open up the doctrine of grace.
What he knows of Jesus, his life, and friends and ministry, and his person and work, is truly amazing. Buy it!
