By (author) Barbara E. Reid. Barbara E. Barbara Reid proves to be a helpful and informed guide to Matthew's Gospel.

New Testament scholarship, which has been more concerned to discern the sources that underlie our Gospels and to study the methods used by the Evangelists as they have worked through their sources and put their Gospels together than it has been to discover what the Evangelists meant. I do not want to say anything derogatory about such activities.

The Gospel of Matthew carries important lessons on the formation of community and of Jesus as authoritative Teacher--lessons that helped the early Matthean population relate to both the Jewish and Christian communities of which they were composed.

The Gospel According to Matthew provides Gospel text (New American Bible translation) along with Barbara E. Reid's commentary, to aid in the interpretation and use of this Gospel today. As Reid demonstrates, this Gospel continues to bring Vision and hope to Christians throughout the ages.

Reid stresses the importance of the Gospel of Matthew as the first book in the New Testament, possibly the first written Gospel, and the one most often used in the early church. Providing both the text and commentary, Reid addresses important questions such as the author's identity and sources, setting and Gospel translation.

Sections are The Origins of Jesus (1:1-4:11)," "The Beginnings of the Galilean Ministry (4:12-10:42)," "The Sermon on the Mount (5:1-7:28)," "Varying Responses to Jesus(11:1-16:12)," "Jesus and His Disciples on the Way to Jerusalem (16:14- 20:34)," "Jerusalem; Jesus' Final Days of Teaching in the Temple (21:1-28:15)," "Finale: Back to Galilee; Commission to the Whole World; Jesus' Abiding Presence (28:16-20)." Also includes discussion questions.

I found this to be a good in-depth book.

Sr. Barabara Ried has written a fresh commentary on St. Matthew's Gospel. She give a concise summary of several common viewpoints: Jesus as the New Moses, The Five Discourses, Jesus, Messiah as fulfillment of the Prohpets.

She proposes the structure of Matthew's Gospel as a story. I found the story structure very refresing. Yes, I do recommend this volume. That I find the commentary refreshing has suggested my choice of the work fresh.

Her work as the high quality of scholarhship and writing that charactgerizes the Collegeville Series.

I also find her commentary helpful for homily preparation.

Worse than useless. That is, when not stating the obvious, it tends to be more often problematic than helpful. It is far less concerned with facilitating a Catholic understanding of the gospel than with promoting the agenda of the author, who reveals her strong commitment to feminism and liberation theology. She displays an obsession with gender, empowerment and systemic injustice. Her faults range from annoying peccadilos to loopy theories to apparent heresy.

Of course, she refuses to use masculine pronouns for God. She denies Christ His self-applied title "Son of Man", replacing it with "Son of Humanity" and then "the Human One". She uses "Creator" to avoid referring to the Father as such. She seems to have invented a fourth person of the Trinity, whom she dubs "Woman Wisdom" and mentions often. She makes bizarre, unsupported assertions, such as that St. Peter's mother-in-law was probably a major figure in the early Church (p. 52). She sees the woman who annoints Jesus head as acting as "priest and prophet" (p.128), not how Jesus interprets her action. She stresses Peter's "utter failure" and makes the women at the tomb the primary evangelists of the gospel, even according them the title "apostles" (p. 144).

She writes (p. 60), "Jesus himself likely understood his mission to be only for the renewal of his own people, while his followers subsequently understood it as intended for Gentiles as well." This is hardly reconcilable with the Church's dogma that Jesus willingly laid down His life for the sins of all mankind. Indifferent to historicity, she reads the text not to understand our Lord but rather to dissect the motives of the early Christian community, often opining that words attributed to Jesus were not His (e.g. pp. 75,78,106,119). She oddly refers to John the Baptist as Jesus' "mentor" (p. 80). Her treatment of Jesus' renaming of Peter and declaration "on this rock I will build my church" makes no mention of the Catholic understanding of this as the foundation of the papacy, implying rather, as Protestants tend to, that "rock" refers to Peter's faith. She further claims (pp. 89,94) that the power to "bind and loose" was bestowed on all members of the community, apparently rejecting Catholic teaching on episcopal authority and the sacrament of reconciliation. She also discounts the perpetual virginity of Mary by suggesting she may be the "mother of James and Joseph" (p. 142).

Then there's her bizarre interpretations of the parables. The unforgiving servant, we're told, is punished because he fails to flatter the king by imitating his example of how to shame and exert domination over those below him. Is this her image of God? She hijacks and inverts Jesus' parable of the talents for her own Marxist purposes, making the servant who buried the talent the hero for not cooperating with the capitalist aims of his greedy master.

The only thing particularly Catholic about this ideologically guided commentary is an index at the back of Catechism references (to which the author would have done well to refer). Though obviously intended to be THE introduction to Bible texts for non-scholarly lay Catholics (I read this in a parish Scripture study), I've found books in the (New) Collegeville series often do little to instill an appreciation of the Faith, intead sometimes encouraging views contrary to it under the "authoritative" mantle of "scholarship". Thus continues the not-so-new devangelization. Find something better...or just read your Bible.
