Praise For Exalting Jesus in Song of Songs (Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary)


Few books of the Bible offer greater difficulty and more reward for a pastor than the Song of Songs. Danny Akin, with the skill of a theologian and the sensitivity of a pastor, deftly balances the practical, Christological, and poetic nuances of this incredible book. Every pastor will want to have this volume on his shelf. Teaching Solomon’s majestic song, in the manner God intended, will provide a richly rewarding experience for any church.

It's one thing to know Bible stories; it's another to know the story of the Bible. It's one thing to be aware of the story's many heroes; it's another to have met the Hero himself. From the Old Testament that anticipates him, to the Gospels that manifest him, to the Book of Acts that proclaims him, to the Epistles that explain him, and to the Book of Revelation that tells of him coming again, your Bible is about Jesus. That's why I love the vision of the Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series. It models for preachers and teachers how to proclaim—with pastoral focus and exegetical care—the beauty of the gospel from every page of Scripture.

Few things are more important for faithful biblical interpretation than reading Scripture in light of its master narrative. The Christ-Centered Exposition series aims to do just that.  In a postmodern age, these commentaries provide pastors and lay people an invaluable resource that is unswervingly committed to the authority of Scripture and the centrality of the Gospel in the Bible’s storyline.
