Exalting Jesus in 1 Corinthians is part of the Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series. Edited by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, and Tony Merida, this commentary series takes a Christ-centered approach to expositing each book of the Bible. Each chapter explains and applies key passages, providing helpful outlines for study and teaching.

This practical and easy-to-read commentary is designed to help the reader see Christ in 1 Corinthians. More devotional than academic, the expositions are presented as sermons and divided into chapters that conclude with a "Reflect & Discuss" section, making this series ideal for small group study, personal devotion, and even sermon preparation.

The CCE series will include 47 volumes when complete; this volume is written by Daniel L. Akin and James Merritt. 

How do you endure hardship with clarity and confidence? Merritt draws from the difficulties the apostle Paul faced from prison; guides you through his petitions and praises; and shows how they provide a model for communicating with God. Packed with insightful teachings and practical takeaways, this book reminds you of the power available through communion with him. 192 pages, hardcover from Harvest.
