Built upon the Rock: Studies in the Gospel of Matthew
Nolland, John and Daniel M. Gurtner, editors

Grand Rapids: Eerdmans, 2008 pp. xv + 331. $34.00

Description: This collection of essays from the 2005 Tyndale Fellowship conference covers topics pertinent to the entire first Gospel, including Matthew’s sources, the role of Jerusalem, the problem of anti-Semitism, Matthew’s portrayal of salvation history, and more. Reflections by seasoned veterans — Donald Hagner, R. T. France, David Wenham, and others — are featured, complemented by the contributions of a number of scholars lesser known to the English-speaking world. Together these essays provide a valuable entry in the field by an international team of evangelical scholars addressing critical questions in Matthean studies.

Subjects: Bible, New Testament, Synoptic Gospels, Matthew, Literature
