This work is an exegetical and theological exposition of Peter's rich summary of the Christian faith in 1 Peter. It covers the structure, grammar, and backgrounds of the epistle, interweaving theological comments and application, all within a theocentric and Christocentric framework. Peter's call to faithfulness in an often hostile world shows that this rests on Jesus, our Redeemer and Examplar.
About the Series:
The Reformed Expository Commentary focuses on the English rendering of the biblical text, and thus does not address concerns of the original language or other academic technicalities. Nonetheless it is the product of rigorous work with the biblical text in its original languages. Each volume proceeds section-by-section and focuses on the narrative flow of the biblical book. Moreover, it draws out significant points or theological emphases in the text, and then applies them to the daily life of the Christian.
As with all volumes in the Reformed Expository Commentary series, this exposition of Philippians is accessible to both pastors and lay readers. Each volume in the series provides exposition that gives careful attention to the biblical text, is doctrinally Reformed, focuses on Christ through the lens of redemptive history, and applies the Bible to our contemporary setting.
The commentary series analyzes the text in 4 ways - expositionally, doctrinally, redemptively, and practically.
