This book brings us closer to the understanding of the first Gospel with a style that is popular and accessible to all. The author comes from a culture that is different than ours and a society where Christians are a definite minority. Because of this, it can be charming, original and can open new horizons. He writes, I ask myself why I chose Matthew. Because I believe we can find a common point in the society, because it deals with complex and difficult problems in the real world and it brings to us the light that emanates from the sermons of Christ. This is the originality of Matthew. The perceived intention was to get this message out with the most clarity and understanding of Christ and his message.
