My review doesn't get into the style or content of the commentaries. I'm rating the revision.

I bought this volume as an replacement/update to the earlier version of Matthew/Mark/Luke. I knew the new version would be in a different format and only Matthew/Mark. I mainly wanted Carson's Matthew. Unfortunately, aside for the page layout/font, the Carson's commentary is generally the same as the 1984 edition. Of course the bibliography had some additions and as well as some sections of the commentary (ie, 5:17). I was disappointed, not in Carson, but in Zondervan "revision".

The Mark commentary originally by Wessel and revised by Strauss seems to be a true update/revision. The bibliography and commentary reflects the use newer scholarship.

Just thought you might want to know. If you're looking for a two-in-one commentary, this one wouldn't be bad, but keep in mind Carson's work is about 25 years old.

This commentary on Matthew and Mark is an outstanding resource for pastors, graduate students, Bibles teachers, and layman. It is concise, readable, hermeneutically sound, and very well structured. It is not inundated with highly technical, scholarly information, but cites enough sources to seek further research. It also includes an overview, commentary, and technical notes at the beginning and end of each pericope for students or pastors with a working knowledge of Greek.

This volume is a newly revised commentary by world renown scholars, D. A. Carson and Mark L. Strauss. I took several graduate NT and Greek Language courses from Mark Strauss at Bethel Seminary, and I deeply appreciated his scholarly and theological impact on my life. He is the vice-chair of the translation committee for the New International Version, and has a passion for local church ministry. All of this is reflected in his commentary. I highly recommend this volume for any student or pastor's library.

This book is very slightly revised version of the original. There is nothing new of significance in the volume. I have the older edition, which is probably 99% the same as this one. As much as I appreciate Don Carson and agree with his theological outlook, this simply is not a great, recent commentary on Matthew. My advice is to keep the original if you have it, and if not, buy the earlier edition used. The publisher really should have pushed for a thorough revision, like Bruner did for his two volumes on Matthew. As such, we were given old wine in a new wineskin!

The Expositor’s Bible Commentary Revised Edition (EBC-R) seeks to provide “a comprehensive yet succinct commentary that guides one to the gist of the test’s meaning.” This is where this commentary series excels. The EBC-R will provide its reader with a good overview of the text and its meaning. This volume (9 of 13) covers the Gospels of Matthew and Mark. The commentary notes on Matthew are written by D.A. Carson (Research professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School), and the notes on Mark are by Walter Wessel (Original writer) and Mark Strauss (revision writer, professor of New Testament at Bethel Seminary). The translation used is the NIV, which is pretty standard for most commentaries.

Each book contains an introduction written by the author containing general background information regarding the book. The bibliography is included in this section which is helpful as it provides the reader with additional commentaries to read as well as knowing where some of the author’s research and thoughts come from. The outlines are always a blessing to me, as they show how the author sees the book flow. The layout of the commentary makes it very easy to read. Each section of Scripture is written in bold with a grey background and is single column, making it easy to find a particular verse quickly. The commentary section follows and is double columned, with bold verse numbers at the start of each commentary section for a particular verse. There are also a Notes section and a Reflections section that contains some extra thoughts. The layout is different from other commentaries that I have read, but once I got used to it I appreciated how easy it was to navigate.

As for the commentary itself, the EBC-R is very readable for pastors and laymen.

It seems that there are literally dozens of different types of commentaries. Finding a quality commentary can be difficult when there are so many options. Zondervan's Expositor's Bible Commentary has proven itself a valuable addition to my library. They always have some of the best scholars for every biblical book and the multi-book volumes for the price of a single book commentary is great as well.

One of the latest revised editions in the EBC is the volume Matthew & Mark. This volume boasts D.A. Carson (Matthew) and Mark Strauss (Mark) as contributors. As a general rule, I try to buy everything that Carson publishes. Carson contributed the commentary on Matthew in the previous edition. This revised edition is just as good as the previous edition.

Mark Strauss is a scholar with whom I am becoming more familiar with. His commentary on Mark is as helpful and elucidating as his Four Portraits, One Jesus (a title I am currently reading for a course and thoroughly enjoying). While the contents of a book should not be judged by the cover, having an excellent cover complements the exceptional content. Zondervan's design team regularly composes beautiful covers that look great on any shelf.

This is a commentary series that I highly enjoy. This revised edition with commentaries by Carson and Strauss will prove useful for a lifetime of sermon preparation and academic research. I am happy to recommend it to a variety of people: students, lay-people and scholars.

NOTE: In accordance with the regulations of the Federal Trade Commission I would like to state that I received the aforementioned title for the purpose of review. I was not required to furnish a positive review.
