"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.
About the Author:
Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr. serves as president and the Joseph Emerson Brown Professor of Christian Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. He is the author of several books, including Culture Shift: Engaging Current Issues with Timeless Truth, He Is Not Silent: Preaching in a Postmodern World, The Conviction to Lead: 25 Principles for Leadership that Matters, and We Cannot Be Silent: Speaking Truth to a Culture Redefining Sex, Marriage, and the Very Meaning of Right and Wrong. He is married to Mary, and they have two children, Katie and Christopher.
Albert Mohler is, by any measure, among the most important Christian leaders of the century. He consistently calls the church and the world to the authority and sufficiency of God’s Word. This commentary demonstrates keen exegetical insight, sharp personal application, and deep worldview analysis, and this brilliantly equips the Christian to see and proclaim the glory of Christ from a biblical book that ties together the whole story of redemption.
