Treasures from the Scriptures is expository and topical. If you are an expository preacher who likes taking Scripture one verse at a time, this commentary will provide. If you like to preach topically, the topical and character trait studies in this volume bring your studies to life. The topics are indexed so they are searchable in Wordsearch.
Easy-to-understand Greek and Hebrew word studies take you deeper in the Word without getting too technical. As you follow Mattoon’s verse-by-verse approach, you’ll discover he gently dips into the well of biblical languages and always emerges with a clean, fresh understanding of a difficult word.

Thank you for your kind gift of Treasures from Philippians. I appreciate your labor and research and hard work in producing this book. Thank you also for thinking of me and sending me a copy of it. I appreciate this gesture of kindness and generosity. May God give it a broad audience and influential reading. May God’s blessings be with your ministry.
I just wanted to add a brief note to let you know how much I have enjoyed your Treasures from Scripture Series. I started with Joshua and then Judges and found them refreshing and informative. Yours is the first commentary that I reach for in my studies. I have, since the beginning, purchased each of your volumes as they have come out. The topical studies in each book have been an added blessing. Thank you again for your diligent work.
I have been reading and studying through Dr. Mattoon's Treasure series and I must say that they have truly been a blessing to me. Not only do they contain a wealth of information but they have also helped me to study the Bible in a way that I had not before. Consequently, they have helped me in my own sermon preparation. The Bible believing world has needed such resources.
The pages of this book are packed with research and information that will feed any pastor's people. It is not hard to use and is very readable and useable. It is first class in its publishing and layout. It's structure is well thought out and the result is a book that invites your attention. The features most helpful to me are the illustrative charts, the alliterated outlines and the subject index in the back of the book.
