Good commentary series! The scripture is on the top of the page and the commentary is bellow. Easy to understand while challenging. Presenter or facilitator may need another outside source to add to the discussion.

Catholic Commentaries

The Collegeville Commentary series is a Catholic set of commentaries for the books of the Bible. Most of the commentaries are individual (ie: one commentary for one book of the Bible), and the commentary on Matthew is one of those. When I say that it is a Catholic commentary, I mean that it is written by someone of the Catholic faith, and as such all interpretation will be done from the Catholic standpoint. The commentary is a paperback book of over 100 pages. The top portion of each page contains the actual Biblical verses, while the lower portion of each page contains the commentary. The two are easily delineated, and the format is not confusing. Another nice feature to the individual books (like this one) as compared to the compendium (you can buy the Old or New Testament commentaries as single books) is that these contain pictures of sites important to Jesus' ministry, and where appropriate maps of the areas as well. Also, the compendiums do not have the Biblical verses but only contain the commentaries (presumably to save space). The cost of these books is relatively cheap and if you only need a commentary on a book or two of the Bible these are much cheaper to buy than large bulky commentaries. If you want the whole set though, I suggest you buy the compilations of the OT and NT, which though they lack the pictures found in the single books are much reduced in cost. Overall, these are very good books to learn from and read if you are a Catholic. It is one of the very few "Catholic Commentaries" that you can find that covers the entire Bible.
