I commend Fr. Paul Nadim Tarazi for another scholarly volume bringing together an Orthodox scholar's perspective and critical analysis of the Holy Scripture. Unfortunately, reading this volume oftentimes feels as though Fr. Paul is struggling to present new and innovative theories on this Gospel rather than simply presenting a workable analysis of the text. As I read this volume, I feel I learned more about Fr. Paul's opinion/theories than the Gospel itself. Perhaps that is the point, but I really did not expect such a point when I purchased this volume.
Overall, it is a worthwhile effort, but for someone who simply wants to learn more about the Gospel according to St. Matthew, I would look elsewhere.
