Powell has rendered a great service to scholars and pastors by interpreting Matthew’s Gospel according to a ‘pastoral’ reading that corresponds in a remarkably satisfying way to the intentions of the Gospel and the situation out of which it was originally addressed. This is the kind of book about which one is tempted to ask, ‘Why hasn’t anyone thought of this before?’
