Format: Paperback
France sets forth a very clear yet detailed introduction to the background and the content of Matthew's gospel. France stresses the importance of appreciating Matthew's literary skill in his use of sources and presentation of material. Particularly, Matthew's "Fulfilment motif" is important for understanding Matthew's portrayal of Jesus - it shapes his use of the OT and the structure of his gospel.
In discussing the date and Authorship of the gospel, France ultimately remains agnostic. However, he shows that there is no reason for the tracitional dating and authorship to be necessarily rejected.
Coming from a conservative standpoint, France engages intellectually with a diverse range of views and put forward strong arguments to support his conclusions.

Excellent, given the scope of the series 15 Sep 2007
By David Kilpatrick - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
It is difficult to rate this fairly because you have to ask about the intended audience. If you are looking for an in-depth scholarly treatment of Matthew, this would be 2 stars. However, that's not the scope of this series. I've used many Tyndale NT commentaries over the years, and it is a very good series, but not as in-depth as NICNT, NIGTC, WBC, etc. With that said, France does an excellent job commenting on the kinds of questions people turn to a commentary for, and not spending too much time on the blah, blah, blah, that fills the pages of so many commentaries. While you aren't getting all the details, you are getting the fruits of top-notch scholarship. It's a great commentary, given its scope.

Good commentary 1 Aug 2006
By JAHbrew - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Though all the commentaries in this series are not equal, this is very good. His exposition of Ch.24 is well argued, even if you don't agree with his conclusions.
