With a projected number of 48 volumes, this commentary series of small books is large on insight and understanding of the Bible. It will be a reliable, faithful, and useful commentary for years to come. Edited by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, and Tony Merida, this new commentary series takes an expositional, Christ-centered approach to explaining each book of the Bible.
The Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series is shaped by both theological conviction and practical goals.
At the root of this series is the belief that 'God speaks through his written word.' Therefore, 'We must speak from that word.' Furthermore, the series takes as its starting point that: 'the Bible is God breathed, authoritative, inerrant, sufficient, understandable, necessary, and timeless.
With these convictions firmly in place the Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary focuses on multiple practical goals that naturally accord with the stated theological convictions. They include:
provide a commentary that can be used at all levels of ministry for weekly preparation
to present the biblical material in a readable and pastoral style
remain text focused while providing inspiring illustrations and true-to-life application
In 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus a team of authors tackles Paul's most personal letters emphasizing the importance of both good Christian character and sound doctrine in church leaders. Devotional, informative and intensely biblical, this volume kicks off the series in the right direction!
