Publisher's Description

Edited by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, and Tony Merida, this new commentary series, projected to be 48 volumes, takes a Christcentered approach to expositing each book of the Bible.

Rather than a verse-by-verse approach, the authors have crafted chapters that explain and apply key passages in their assigned Bible books. Readers will learn to see Christ in all aspects of Scripture, and they will be encouraged by the devotional nature of each exposition.

Exalting Jesus in Matthew is the second volume in the series and is solely authored by Platt (best-selling author of Radical). Other projected contributors to the series include notable authors such as Russell D. Moore, Al Mohler, Matt Chandler, Francis Chan, Mark Dever, and others.

Author Bio

David Platt’s first love in ministry is making disciples—sharing, showing, and teaching God’s Word in everyday life. He has traveled extensively to serve alongside church leaders around the world. David is the president of the International Mission Board and the founder of Radical, a resource ministry that exists to serve the church in accomplishing the mission of Christ. He is also the author of several books, Follow Me, Radical, and Radical Together and most recently Counter Culture (to be released February 2015).  He is the founder of Radical (Radical.net) a resource ministry devoted to serving churches and disseminating disciple-making resources. David and his wife, Heather, have four children: Caleb, Joshua, Mara Ruth, and Isaiah.

Endorsements

Platt, Akin, and Merida have launched a series that will give a rising generation of pastors a tremendous resource for seeing how all the Scriptures prepare for and proclaim the ministry of Christ. The pastoral focus, the preaching tools, and the redemptive insights make this series of immediate use and great aid to pastors who want to equip their people to serve the Lord in the joyous power of the gospel--rather than in the vain pressures of servile dread or slavish fear.
-Bryan Chapell,
Covenant Seminary, President Emeritus

Editorial Reviews

Confidence in the truth and power of God’s written Word should prompt pastors and teachers not only to say worthy things about the Bible, but also to preach and teach with faithfulness from the Bible. The Christ-Centered Exposition series helps us to do just that. Theologically rock solid, this series is a clear, practical, and useful guide to the kind of biblical exposition that will please the Lord and build up his church.
 
Timothy George
Founding dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University and general editor of the Reformation Commentary on Scripture
 
 
There is nothing more helpful to a pastor than resources that are biblically faithful and pastorally applicable.  The Christ-Centered Exposition series hits the bull’s eye. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to understand the Scripture in its context in order to apply it in real life.

It's one thing to know Bible stories; it's another to know the story of the Bible. It's one thing to be aware of the story's many heroes; it's another to have met the Hero himself. From the Old Testament that anticipates him, to the Gospels that manifest him, to the Book of Acts that proclaims him, to the Epistles that explain him, and to the Book of Revelation that tells of him coming again, your Bible is about Jesus. That's why I love the vision of the Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series. It models for preachers and teachers how to proclaim—with pastoral focus and exegetical care—the beauty of the gospel from every page of Scripture.

Matt Smethurst
Associate Editor for The Gospel Coalition

Few things are more important for faithful biblical interpretation than reading Scripture in light of its master narrative. The Christ-Centered Exposition series aims to do just that.  In a postmodern age, these commentaries provide pastors and lay people an invaluable resource that is unswervingly committed to the authority of Scripture and the centrality of the Gospel in the Bible’s storyline.

    The Best Commentary at this Price, with the Usual Reliable Truth and Intensity from David Platt

    I love the books and teaching from this well-known author, David Platt. This Matthew commentary reminds me of his famous Secret Church sermon simulcasts, which the author compares to drinking from a fire hose, there is so much Biblical Truth and teaching in a concise place. This book has the usual intensity from David Platt, and great spiritual insights that are always thought provoking and challenging for all Christians who love to have help in growing more mature in their Christian walk. I recommend this to anybody who is already a David Platt reader. This is also a great start for anybody who is new to reading Bible Commentaries. This little paperback is stuffed chock full of fine tuned landmarks from Matthew, Platt explains the overall composition of Matthew, as well as teaching the most weighty details within Matthew. I will recommend this to any friend, I am thinking about just buying extra copies to give to friends, I am sure they will like this book. This book could only be better if it came in hardcover, but you cannot beat the quality of content at this price. It is even a nice printing job, with good paper. I think you will like this book as much as you like anything else by David Platt.

    The constant pressure of preparation in my "normal" week leads me to think that there must be times that the chef loves to have a wonderful meal prepared for them, were they can just sit down and enjoy. I feel this way reading this commentary. It is solid doctrinally, not overly heavy intellectually, just perfect to sit down and enjoy the clear teaching of God's Word; direct, clear, accessible and faithful. Thank you for producing this series. I will be sure to continue with the collection.

    I bought this on the basis of a review, looking for something that would have some depth. Disappointing. I will never buy in this commentary series again.
