God inspired the Bible for a reason. He wants us to read and be changed! Here comes a new range of devotional-style commentaries, by a new voice within Evangelicalism accessing each book of the Bible. Containing sixty bite-sized insights per book, they are accessible, full of useful application and backed by substantial scholarship. They are a viable resource for daily devotions, house groups or as a preaching help. These new commentaries are top notch: biblical and passionate, clear and well-illustrated, simple and profound. God's Word comes to life as you read them, and the wonder of faith in Christ shines through every page.

This Matthew based commentary is packed with Kingdom life. Jesus of Nazareth sparked a massive revolution. A lot of people miss this core fact. They are so used to the long-haired, blue-eyed, white-robed storybook Jesus that they imagine he was about as tame and domesticated as many of His churches today. But he wasn't. Jesus was a radical, dangerous revolutionary who made big waves and powerful enemies. He was not killed for preaching pithy parables, but because he claimed to be King. Moore divides each of his five acts of the King and Kingdom life into Jesus' words and Jesus' deeds, so that we will not mistake Jesus for a mere lecturer in religious philosophy, but grasp that he is the-King-on-a-Mission and that he wants to enlist us as his glad and able followers!

Phil Moore, congratulations on your faithful and dynamic work in these...... On the down-side, I wish Monarch in their publishing wisdom had opted for a more spacious layout and size format so that each copy doesn't suffer reading distress in the handling of this little volume. Most commentaries are (sadly are) dull. This reads with a pulse of Holy Spirit life! Most commentaries are for scholars. These are well suited for you and me! This just could be a new way of reading the Bible with fresh eyes. Brilliant!

As with all of the "Straight to the heart of..." series, this book is punchy, thought-provoking, and full of in-depth insights that might take weeks of wading through more academic volumes to find. Both money and time well spent.

Scholarly, insightful, accurate and informative. Ideal for those who truly have a heart to study His Word and not just follow assumptions.
