Following the success of Journeying with Mark and Journeying with Luke, this book offers fresh insights for those who want to reflect on Matthew’s Gospel as it is read and preached within the Christian Churches. This Gospel is the focus for Year A, the first in the three-year cycle of the Lectionary.

Journeying with Matthew is

  • a source of background information
  • a way to greater understanding, prayer and action inspired by the teachings of Jesus
  • a springboard for the imagination, helping us to visualize the lives, times and culture of the people for whom this Gospel was written
  • a guide to reflection for those preparing to hear (or preach) the word of God

This volume pays special attention to the particular character of Matthew’s writing – it can evoke a mixed response, containing as it does some iconic and well-loved episodes but also some very harsh ones.
