CCSS: Matthew

Just in time for the liturgical year 2011, which is year A for the Sunday Gospel readings, Baker Academic will be publishing the fifth volume of the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture series on The Gospel of Matthew in December. This volume will be co-authored by Curtis Mitch, known for his work on the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible, and Edward Sri, known for his publications with Emmaus Road.
As the description indicates:
This engaging commentary on the Gospel of Matthew is the fifth of seventeen volumes in the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture (CCSS), which will cover the entire New Testament. This volume, like each in the series, relates Scripture to life, is faithfully Catholic, and is supplemented by features designed to help readers understand the Bible more deeply and use it more effectively in teaching, preaching, evangelization, and other forms of ministry. The Gospel of Matthew is an ideal resource for those preaching or teaching on the Sunday Gospel readings from Matthew for the liturgical
year beginning in 2010.
Of course, for more information about the entire Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture series, you can go here.
(I hope to post a review of Dr. Williamson's commentary on Ephesians in the coming days.)

I have all the volumes published to date and find them very helpful. I think that one of the great gifts of this series to the Church is found in its inclusion of scholars from various "schools of thought". It has received positive reviews from a wide spectrum (theologically speaking)of biblical scholars.
