About the Series:
The Reformed Expository Commentary focuses on the English rendering of the biblical text, and thus does not address concerns of the original language or other academic technicalities. Nonetheless it is the product of rigorous work with the biblical text in its original languages. Each volume proceeds section-by-section and focuses on the narrative flow of the biblical book. Moreover, it while draws out significant points or theological emphases in the text, and then applies them to the daily life of the Christian.
The various points addressed range between historical events taking place within a books narrative, or upon significant doctrinal statements that are made. The application or "guidance" section as the series calls it rounds out each of the particular emphases from the text making it a complete expository volume. Each commentary approaches the text from a Reformed theological perspective, and can be used profitably for either study or devotion.
