For over one hundred years, the International Critical Commentary series has held a special place among works on the Bible. It has sought to bring together all the relevant aids to exegesis linguistic and textual no less than archaeological, historical, literary and theological with a level of comprehension and quality of scholarship unmatched by any other series.
No attempt has been made to secure a uniform theological or critical approach to the biblical text: contributors have been invited for their scholarly distinction, not for their adherence to any one school of thought. The first paperback editions to be published cover the heart of the New Testament, providing a wealth of information and research in accessible and attractive format.

I've already reviewed other forms of this (hardcover, soft cover, individual volumes, the three volumes together), so I won't repeat it here. I've read the entire introduction and used this commentary ... Read full review
This 3 volume edition is worth the cost as it truly represents the sum total of exhaustive and balanced research on Matthew. A working knowledge of NT Greek is essential to fully understand the scope and depth of the work. It is my most well-worn commentary for Matthew, and whereas Carson and Hill are excellent, Davies-Allison's work is a further extension of both scholar's life's devotion to this book.
Further, tho WD Davies belongs to the ages, Dale Allison continues his Matthean obsession with more recent works.... thou will do well to obtain all.
