Exalting Jesus in 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus: Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, Tony Merida and published by Holman Reference.
At the root of this series is the belief that "God speaks through his written word." Therefore, "We must speak from that word." Furthermore, the series takes as its starting point that: "the Bible is God breathed, authoritative, inerrant, sufficient, understandable, necessary, and timeless. With these convictions firmly in place the Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary focuses on multiple practical goals that naturally accord with the stated theological convictions. They include:
* exegetical accuracy
* provide a commentary that can be used at all levels of ministry for weekly preparation
* to present the biblical material in a readable and pastoral style
* remain text focused while providing inspiring illustrations and true-to-life application
In 1 & 2 Timothy and Titus a team of authors tackles Paul's most personal letters emphasizing the importance of both good Christian character and sound doctrine in church leaders. Devotional, informative and intensely biblical, this volume kicks off the series in the right direction!
