Editorial Reviews

In Matthew And The Margins: A Sociopolitical And Religious Reading, Warren Carter (Pherigo Chair in New Testament at the Saint Paul School of Theology in Kansas City) provides readers with a new, informative, challenging, and thought provoking commentary emphasizing the roles of marginality and empire in the Gospel of Matthew. Verse by verse, Carter presents this key gospel as a counter-narrative shaping the followers of Jesus as an alternative community, resisting the authorities of both synagogue and state. Highly recommended for students of New Testament studies, Matthew And The Margins reveals and documents how the Gospel anticipates the time when Jesus' return will establish God's reign over all -- including the imperial powers of the state.
