Reviews - What do our customers think?
Scholarly work with powerful application  Jun 20, 2006
This was the very first commentary I read through and I frequently go back to reference it. Keener's emphasis on the social-historical context of this Gospel is helpful yet concise. His passion for preaching is quite apparent in his expository that truly spoke into my heart, and convicted me in many areas of my life. Keener has a more in depth commentary on Mathew that would be better suited for those who are more academically minded; however, this commentary is still scholarly and will provide the reader with much incite.
