Product Description

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:
  • exegetical accuracy
  • 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!

Publisher's Description

Edited by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, and Tony Merida, this new commentary series, projected to be 48 volumes, takes a Christ- centered 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.

Projected contributors to the series include notable authors such as Russell D. Moore, Al Mohler, Matt Chandler, Francis Chan, Mark Dever, and others.

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. 
 
Darrin Patrick
Lead pastor of The Journey, St. Louis, and co-author of For the City


David Platt, Tony Akin, and Tony 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 a 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
President Emeritus, Covenant Seminary and Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church


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.

Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr., President
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary


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
