"This series affirms that the Bible is a Christ-centered book, containing a unified redemptive history of which Jesus is the hero. We purpose to exalt Jesus from every book of the Bible. In doing this, we are not commending wild allegory or fanciful typology. We must be constrained to the meaning intended by the divine Author Himself, the Holy Spirit of God. However, we also believe that the Bible has a Messianic focus, and the authors in this series will exalt Christ from all of their texts." - Series Editors
About the Series
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.
It's presented as sermons, divided into chapters that conclude with a "Reflect & Discuss" section, making it ideal for small group study, personal devotion and sermon preparation. It's not academic. Our aim is to present an easy reading, practical and friendly commentary.

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.
Leviticus may well be the most neglected book in the Old Testament, but Allan Moseley has given us a study that can help every Christian grasp its importance. A scholarly, accessible, pastorally wise, and Christ-centered exposition of the third book of the Bible.
