THIS JUST IN: THE LECTIO CONTINUA EXPOSITORY COMMENTARY

I just received word earlier this evening that the first volume in a series I’ve been looking forward to for quite some time, The Lectio Continua Expository Commentary on the New Testament (2012, Tolle Lege Press), is fresh off the press!

Dr. John Fesko, of Westminster Seminary California, is the author of the first volume on Galatians.

I’ll be reviewing Dr. J.V. Fesko’s commentary on Galatians in the weeks to come and featuring an interview with both Dr. Fesko and Dr. Jon Payne, the series’ editor.  But for now, here is some preliminary info…

Series Overview

The Lectio Continua Expository Commentary on the New Testament is not meant to be an academic or highly technical series. There are many helpful exegetical commentaries written for that purpose. Rather, the aim is to provide lectio continua sermons which clearly and faithfully communicate the context, meaning, gravity and application of God’s inerrant Word. Each volume of expositions aspires to be redemptive-historical, covenantal, Reformed and confessional, trinitarian, person-and-work-of-Christ-centered, and teeming with practical application. Therefore, the series will be a profound blessing to every Christian believer who longs to “grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ” (II Peter 3:18).

Endorsements

“The book of Galatians is a crystal vial containing the sweet medicine of salvation in Christ alone. Fesko opens the vial and pours out the healing doctrines of justification by faith alone and sanctification by grace alone. His simple, expository style will connect with ordinary people. Yet he helps us to do biblical theology, uncovering the Old Testament roots of the gospel. He guides us in systematic theology, distilling clear doctrinal statements from the Scriptures with the insights of great theologians of the past. And his commentary is practical, leading the reader in this present evil age to live by faith in the Son of God, who loved us and gave Himself up for us. Read Galatians and read this book—and then walk by faith in Christ alone.”

Dr. Joel R. Beeke, President, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

“There are so many fine commentaries available today. However, it’s great to have a reliable author you can turn to for solid Reformed reflection on Scripture. In this case, there are sixteen of them—friends and fellow shepherds who have given me great insight into God’s Word over the years. I’m looking forward eagerly to Fesko’s Galatians commentary—and to each one after that!”

Dr. Michael S. Horton, J. Gresham Machen Professor of Apologetics and Systematic Theology atWestminster Seminary California

Editor-in-Chief of Modern Reformation Magazine

“Those of us who have promoted and practiced Lectio Continua expository preaching through the years eagerly await the volumes Tolle Lege Press has announced in its Lectio Continua Expository Commentary on the New Testament. We are equally eager to read such a series written by pastors who have practiced the method in their churches. The international and interdenominational character of the series will only add to the richness of its insights.”

Dr. T. David Gordon, Professor of Religion and Greek at Grove City College
Author of “Why Johnny Can’t Preach” (P&R, 2009)
