^ Recognized as a masterly commentary when it first appeared, Frederick Dale Bruner??'s study of Matthew is now available as a greatly revised and expanded two-volume work ? the result of seven years of careful refinement, enrichment, and updating. ^ Through this commentary, crafted especially for teachers, pastors, and Bible students, Bruner aims ???to help God??'s people love what Matthew??'s Gospel says.??? Bruner??'s work is at once broadly historical and deeply theological. It is historical in drawing extensively on great church teachers through the centuries and on the classical Christian creeds and confessions. It is theological in that it unpacks the doctrines in each passage, chapter, and section of the Gospel. Consciously attempting to bridge past and present, Bruner asks both what Matthew??'s Gospel said to its first hearers and what it says to readers today. As a result, his commentary is profoundly relevant to contemporary congregations and to those who guide them.
Frederick Dale Bruner is George and Lyda Wasson Professor of Religion Emeritus at Whitworth University and scholar in residence at Fuller Theological Seminary. His other books includeA Theology of the Holy Spirit and the two-volume Matthew: A Commentary -- The Christbook and The Churchbook .
