From the Publisher
This book is not a traditional commentary. It does not attempt a full-scale exegesis, nor does it provide explanations of some of the subtle arguments in the Johannine Letters that bind the text together. Rather, it is an exposition of John's Letters -- demonstrated, for example, in the way most of the outlines are cast in the second person, often in the imperative, like points in many sermons. The author takes pains to connect the dominant themes of each section of the biblical text with central Christian truths. Each chapter ends with an extensive "Reflect and Discuss" section -- one of the strongest features of the book. This work will prove useful for small group study, and may encourage preachers to ponder anew how to move from what the text says to the pointed sermon.

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.

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.

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.

Danny Akin’s commentary on 1,2,3 John will be helpful to both the pastor and the layman. He shares great biblical insight and a wealth of meaningful quotes that can enrich anyone’s faith.
Senior Pastor, Johnson Ferry Baptist Church, Marietta, GA
Danny Akin is not only a gifted commentator but a dynamic communicator. I highly recommend this work from the Epistles of John to the study of every Bible teacher and preacher of the Gospel. This is Truth with conviction and will strengthen the faith of all believers.
Danny Akin has provided for the many pastors caring for their flocks a precise and passionate survey of John's Epistles. His homiletic approach to each epistle reduces the study time for the busy pastor in their weekly preparation. If you want a commentary that holds to the integrity of Scripture, offers great thought provoking applications, and points you back to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, I suggest you add this to your collection.
