Editorial Reviews

Endorsement - Curtis Martin
Emmaus Road has done it again! This is a dynamic Bible study that draws you close to Christ and the Church He founded. Edward Sri shows us why his college courses are overflowing with excited students--he makes the Scriptures come alive.
Endorsement - Scott Hahn
Edward Sri has moved us beyond the typical modern limitations in reading Matthew. Read this book attentively, then, and you'll come to a deeper love of the people and the religion of Israel, the people and the religion of our Messiah and King.
