For years, Crossway’s Preaching the Word commentary series has helped pastors, preachers, and anyone who teaches God’s Word to better interpret and apply the message of the Bible. Under the careful editorial oversight of experienced pastor and best-selling author R. Kent Hughes, this series is known for its commitment to biblical authority, its pastoral tone and focus, and its overall accessibility. This set features contributions from a host of respected Bible teachers—offering readers a well-rounded and multipurpose resource for preaching, teaching, and personal study.
"The single best resource for faithful biblical exposition available today. A great boon for genuine reformation!" — Timothy George, Founding Dean, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University; general editor, Reformation Commentary on Scripture
"For this outstanding series of expository commentaries, Kent Hughes has assembled a team of unusually gifted scholar-preachers. The series will be widely used and much sought after." — Eric J. Alexander, Retired Senior Minister, St. George's-Tron Parish Church, Glasgow, Scotland
"The Preaching the Word commentary series is one of my favorites. The focus upon explaining a text with preaching it as the goal makes the series resonate with the priorities of the pulpit. No academic aloofness here, but down-to-earth, preacher-to-preacher meat for God's people." — Bryan Chapell, Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church, Peoria, Illinois
"I'm delighted to endorse the philosophy behind the series edited by my friend Kent Hughes. Here sounds out the voice not of the scholar in the study but of the scholar in the pulpit. The authors are all able teachers who regularly expound God's living Word to his people. May this rich material give us 'patterns of preaching' that will not only feed the flock, but, by God's grace, change the church." — R. C. Lucas, Retired Rector, St. Helen's Church, Bishopsgate, London, England
