P&R. Reformed Expository Commentary Series. d.w’s. 2 volumes.
While paying careful attention to a commentary’s traditional interest in the structure, backgrounds, and grammar of the text, Doriani also supplies the theological commentary, Christ-centered focus, and personal and corporate applications that pastors and teachers need. Each chapter attends to Matthew’s original intent and seeks to express that intent in ways that evoke his distinct voice, so as to fulfill the goal of Matthew’s gospel-making disciples by forming the mind, heart, and hands of believers. The mature fruit that is produced through years of ministry in the academy and the church is found in this volume. Readers will surely harvest an abundance of exegetical, theological, and practical insights for Christian life and ministry. This commentary is a must read for all who study the Gospel of Matthew.
