Item Description...
Overview
Matthew and the Margins provides readers with a provocative new commentary that emphasizes the roles of marginality and empire in the Gospel of Matthew. Verse by verse, Warren Carter presents this gospel as a counter-narrative shaping the followers of Jesus as an alternative community, resisting the authorities of both synagogue and state. He shows how the Gospel anticipates the time when Jesus' return will establish God's reign over all - including the imperial powers of Rome.

Publishers Description
This verse by verse commentary presents the Gospel of Matthew as a counter-narrative that shapes the group of Jesus' followers as an alternative community able to resist the dominant authorities both in Rome and in the synagogue. The Gospel anticipates the time when Jesus will return and establish God's reign over all, including the powers in Rome.

Breaking Matthew into five narrative blocks, Carter carefully considers historical, literary, cultural, and ecclesial factors as he explores the themes of marginality and power. A masterful introduction outlines these approaches and surveys other studies on Matthew.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Skip Movie The Passion - Read this Book!  Mar 29, 2004
Matthew and the Margins: A Socio-Political and Religious Reading by Warren Carter is a stupendous book that I would recommend reading for anyone looking for greater depth than Mel Gibson's movie The Passion or Rick Warren's pop book The Purpose Driven Life, both of which are in vogue as of the writing of this review. The book is a verse by verse introductory commentary to the Christian Gospel of Matthew and could appeal to believer, nonbeliever and agnostic alike, although it is written from social scientific and religious viewpoints. The focus of the book is on the social marginality, or alienation, of the Christian figure Jesus as depicted in the book of Matthew. By marginality, Carter means living on the fringe of society rather than being a part of the political and religious established center of society. The author, I believe rightly, contends that the book of Matthew is a book of resistance against th Roman imperial control and the Jewish synogogue leaders of the day, although certainly not the Jewish people. The author avoids being a know it all and admits he doesn't know who wrote the book or who Matthew was. Unlike most relgious commentaries on books of the bible, this book is highly readable. Even if you just want to gain a better appreciation and understanding of the Christian story without necessarily becoming a believer, I would commend this book to you. Nonetheless, Carter points out that the book of Matthew was originally written for "consenting readers." However, Carter doesn't write what he believes his audience wants to hear - which he calls "cheap assent." True to the social marginality theme, this book probably won't be a best seller like some of the pop Christian books currently in vogue (Prayer of Jabez, Purpose Driven Life, etc.), nor will it gain the acclaim or wealth to its author such as a movie like The Passion, but it is an indelibly "experiential" book just like a good movie is. I highly commend this book to skeptic, agnostic, and believer alike. As this reviewer likewise aspires to a marginal role, I have elected to remain anonymous to hopefully allow the interested reader to find this intriguing book on his/her own possibly through this review.
