Actually read the book of Matthew and am comparing this to other versions of the Bible.

The foundational text for Christianity, a historical and philosophical connection to the early church and to Judaism, and a great work of literature. I first read it in its entirety during a "Through the Bible in a Year" program in high school. Whether one is seeking the basis for Christianity, masterpiece storytelling, or a classic Great Book, the Bible merits its 5 stars. ( )
