Good on parables, but less so on the rest of the text. The introduction is sparse, and not entirely helpful.

This is a fantastic non-technical commentary. Douglas R.A. Hare seems to be able to pack an immense amount of insight into a short space. His book is filled with numerous insights where other commentaries are silent. He helpfully views the Beatitudes as being descriptive of the state of Christ's disciples rather than prescriptive for what makes a disciple. His insight on the eschatological character of the Parable of the Leaven is also fascinating. These insights are intended for the preacher and teacher, not the scholar. Along with Luz and Gibbs, this is my go-to Matthew commentary.
