The Open Your Bible Commentary has four great strengths: * Accessible – it’s written for the average, thoughtful Christian without assuming a great deal of background, yet it is never superficial. * Digestible – it’s written so you can read a section or two a day, working your way through an entire book of the Bible in days or weeks. * Dependable – it’s written by an amazing group of scholars and trusted pastor-teachers. * Practical – it’s a rich combination of specific application and encouragement to listen to God for guidance. The commentary on Matthew is introduced by an overview, summary, outline, key themes, and relevance of this gospel for today.
