Author Bio

R. C. Sproul (Drs, Free University of Amsterdam) serves as senior minister of preaching and teaching at Saint Andrew’s Chapel in Sanford, Florida, and is the founder and president of Ligonier Ministries. He has taught at numerous colleges and seminaries, has written over seventy books, and is featured daily on Renewing Your Mind, an international radio broadcast.

Endorsements

The St. Andrew's Expositional Commentary series will be welcomed throughout the world. It promises to have all of Sproul's hallmarks: clarity and liveliness, humor and pathos, always expressed in application to the mind, will, and affections. Sproul's ability to focus on the big picture, his genius of never saying too much, leaving his hearers satisfied yet wanting more, never making the Word dull, are all present in these expositions. May they nourish God's people well and serve as models of the kind of ministry for which we continue to hunger.
-Sinclair B. Ferguson,
Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, South Carolina

Sproul, well-known as a master theologian and extraordinary communicator, now shows that he is a powerful, insightful, helpful expository preacher. This collection of sermons is of great value for churches and Christians everywhere.
-W. Robert Godfrey,
President and Professor of Church History, Westminster Seminary California

Sproul is a legend in our time. His preaching has held us in awe for half a century, and these pages represent the fruit of his latest exposition, coming as they do at the very peak of his abilities and insights. I am ecstatic at the prospect of reading the St. Andrew's Expositional Commentary series. It represents Reformed theology on fire, delivered from a pastor's heart in a vibrant congregation of our time. Essential reading.
-Derek W. H. Thomas,
John E. Richards Professor of Systematic and Practical Theology, Reformed Theological Seminary; Minister of Teaching, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS

Since stepping into the pulpit of St. Andrew's and committing himself to the weekly discipline of biblical exposition, this noted preacher has demonstrated a rare ability to explicate and apply God's Word. I wholeheartedly recommend the St. Andrew's Expositional Commentary series to all who long to know the truth better and experience it more deeply in a life-changing fashion. Here is an indispensable tool for digging deeper into GodÂ’s Word. This is a must-read for every Christian.
-Steven J. Lawson,
Senior Pastor, Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, Mobile, AL

How exciting! Thousands of us have long been indebted to Sproul the teacher, and now, through the St. Andrew's Expositional Commentary series, we are indebted to Sproul the preacher, whose sermons are thoroughly biblical, soundly doctrinal, warmly practical, and wonderfully readable. This series of volumes is an absolute must for every Reformed preacher and church member who yearns to grow in the grace and knowledge of Christ Jesus. Tolle lege, and buy these volumes for your friends.
-Joel R. Beeke,
President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary

    In the realm of teaching RC Sproul is at the top of the list. His Renewing Your Mind radio broadcast is a favorite of mine because of the clarity with which he teaches as well as the broad range of topics discussed. But does teaching ability translate into a good commentary writer. The answer in this case is a resounding YES! I have loved reading Sproul's work since becoming a Christian and I am happy to say that this commentary on Matthew is a treat to read.

    First off, I do want to discuss the look of the commentary. As a book lover I always enjoy a "good looking" book. This one does not disappoint. The dust jacket has a wonderful look to it and coordinates well with the rest of the series that's available. The layout is great too. Each chapter covers a passage of Scripture. The passage reference is right below the chapter number and title and followed by the entire passage that will be discussed. The passage is offset by using a different font so it is clear to see where Scripture stops and Sproul starts. In the chapter itself, any time Sproul references the text it is offset in bold. This is a great tool, especially if you just want to scan through real quick to find out what the author has to say about a verse or too and are not concerned with the entire context.

    Next is the content. Sproul lays out each chapter in a straightforward and easy to read format. There is typically a small introduction, but sometimes he jumps right into the text. He typically gives a brief explanation of the text followed by some practical application of an example to help the idea behind the passage sink in. The chapter break down is handled nicely and makes it easy to read straight through if one would choose to do so. If you are not familiar with Sproul's view on eschatology, then his treatment of Matthew 24 will be very beneficial. As a partial preterist Sproul believes that much of what is recorded in this chapter takes place in AD 70. For those only familiar with "Left-Behind" eschatology this will be a good short treatment of another view.

    This is the fifth of this series that I have and I am pleased to say that they have not disappointed me. One important note to mention is that if you are looking for a commentary that is highly technical and focusing on the languages and grammar this is not it. This is more of a pastoral commentary. Sproul carries the reader through the text step by step to better grasp the content and does a wonderful job for an expositional commentary. The intent is to give the reader a good over view of what the passage is trying to communicate, not getting bogged down discussing the tense of a verb. GO GET YOURSELF A SPROUL COMMENTARY!!!!!

    I received a free copy of this book from Crossway in exchange for an honest review.
