It’s presented as sermons, divided into chapters that conclude with a “Reflect & Discuss” section, making this series ideal for small group study, personal devotion, and even sermon preparation. It’s not academic but rather presents an easy-reading, practical and friendly commentary. The series is projected to be 48 volumes.

Praise For Exalting Jesus in Revelation (Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary)

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.
Matt Smethurst
Associate Editor for The Gospel Coalition

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.
Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr., President
The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Danny Akin writes with the pen of a scholar and the heart of an evangelist. The message of the Revelation is greatly needed and there is no one more qualified to explain the prophetic Scriptures than Dr. Akin. I highly recommend it.
Dr. Jack Graham
Pastor, Prestonwood Baptist Church

Revelation is not easy to understand, but Dr. Akin has succeeded in writing a commentary that is a great gift to pastors and leaders in the church. With precise exposition, clear points of application, and thoughtful questions, this book is both theologically driven and accessible. I cannot recommend this book enough!
Matt Carter
Pastor, Austin Stone Community Church

“This commentary is an insightful, responsible, theologically rich commentary that inspires worship as well as study. Danny Akin, a wise and respected scholar, avoids the silly speculation and the pastoral irrelevance of many commentaries on this book. Instead, Akin helps us to see from Patmos the unveiling of our Lord. Such a revelation is just what we need for this hour.”
Russell Moore
President, Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention
 

“Revelation is notoriously difficult to interpret, hence many preachers are afraid to preach it. Enter this accessible treatment of the book by Danny Akin written with the pastor and his preaching in mind. Akin is himself a consummate expositor, and preachers will find in this volume practical help in sermon preparation. If you want to know how to preach Revelation, and how to preach Christ from Revelation, this book is for you. I highly recommend it.”
David L. Allen
Dean, School of Preaching, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Fort Worth, Texas
