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.

Projected contributors to the series include notable authors such as Russell D. Moore, Al Mohler, Matt Chandler, Francis Chan, Mark Dever, and others.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

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.
Timothy George
Founding dean of Beeson Divinity School of Samford University and general editor of the Reformation Commentary on Scripture
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.

Lead pastor of The Journey, St. Louis, and co-author of For the City
