The Lectio Continua Expository Commentary on the New Testament - GalatiansISBN: 9780983145776
The Lectio Continua Expository Commentary on the New Testament is a new exegetical commentary series published by Tolle Lege Press. The series, edited by Jon D. Payne, will be authored by sixteen ministers from five countries representing ten different Reformed denominations. The Lectio Continua Expository Commentary seeks to be rigorously exegetical, God-centered, redemptive-historical, sin-exposing, Gospel-trumpeting and teeming with practical application. It aims to encourage ministers, elders, seminarians and interested laypeople to rediscover the profound spiritual benefits of systematic expository preaching; that is, the faithful preaching of the whole counsel of God, verse by verse, chapter by chapter, book by book. It also endeavors, by the power of the Spirit, to help Christs kingdom disciples to grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ.
J.V. Fesko is a minister in the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. He was ordained as a church planter in 1998 and was installed as a pastor in 2003, thus serving in pastoral ministry for over ten years. He has also taught systematic theology for Reformed Theological Seminary for over eight years as a part-time professor. He has served on two committees appointed by the General Assembly of the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. His present research interests include the integration of biblical and systematic theology, soteriology, ecclesiology, and sixteenth- and seventeenth-century Reformed theology. He is a member of the Society of Biblical Literature, the American Academy of Religion, and the Evangelical Theological Society, and a friend of the Institute for Biblical Research.
"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 at Westminster Seminary, California, Host of the White Horse Inn, 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
