I originally purchased this book on a purely speculative basis. Someone had kindly given me a generous booktoken and, because I was preaching a long term series on the whole of Matthew's Gospel in my congregation I thought it would be interesting to try it out. I have most of the standard commentaries on Matthew including D.A. Carson and Leon Morris. However, this one soon muscled its way into my affections and I found myself returning to it again and again, not only for basic exegetical information but for inspiration as well. In addition to the exegesis, the footnotes are excellent and there is a massive bibliography plus a first class index. Really and truly there should be more commentaries like this one.
