`Written for a popular audience, this commentary on Matthew's gospel by well-known spiritual writer and lecturer Megan McKenna underscores the evangelist's focus on mercy and forgiveness. Drawing on solid scholarship on Matthew, McKenna notes that Matthew's community lived at a time of tense transition in the early church: hence the pastoral emphasis on compassion and forgiveness within the community.... Reflection questions and suggestions for further study enhance the volume's usefulness for indivdiual spiritual reading or group discussion.' --Donald Senior in The Bible Today
