Overview

Designed to strengthen the global church with a widely accessible, theologically sound, and pastorally wise resource for understanding and applying the overarching storyline of the Bible, this commentary series features the full text of the ESV Bible passage by passage, with crisp and theologically rich exposition and application.

Editors Iain M. Duguid, James M. Hamilton, and Jay A. Sklar have gathered a team of experienced pastor-theologians to provide a new generation of pastors and other teachers of the Bible around the world with a globally minded commentary series rich in biblical theology and broadly Reformed doctrine, making the message of redemption found in all of Scripture clear and available to all. Thirteen contributors explain the shorter Prophetic Books of the Old Testament—Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, Habakkuk, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi—with biblical insight and pastoral wisdom, showing readers the hope that is offered even amidst judgment.

Top Highlights

“The theme of the book of Jonah is the Lord as a God of worldwide grace, mercy, and love who desires to save all people. Thus he rescues the sailors in chapter 1, Jonah in chapter 2, and the Ninevites in chapter 3. In sharp contrast is Jonah, who delights to experience the Lord’s mercy and salvation for himself (ch. 2) but does not want to share it with evil Gentiles (ch. 4). The book closes with the Lord using a question to reveal Jonah’s misunderstanding of the Lord’s mercy and love. He asks, in effect, ‘Jonah, is it not right for me to show these things to all people, even those you do not think deserve it?’ No answer is given; the question is left for the reader to answer.” (Page 389)

“Living ‘by faith’ here has two aspects, both of which are equally important. First, it refers to an attitude of life lived in dependence on God. One’s faith is foundational to righteousness, as Paul repeatedly makes clear. But it also involves ‘faithfulness’ (ESV mg.), calling for a recognition of God’s trustworthiness, even when circumstances are challenging. It is this sense that is taken up by the writer to the Hebrews.” (Page 544)

“The purpose of the vision and revelation in chapters 10–12 is not to overwhelm the reader with historical detail, although that may happen. The purpose, rather, is for the historical detail to overwhelm the reader with the assurance of God’s sovereignty and meticulous guidance of this world. God does not make educated guesses about the future; he decrees it.” (Page 161)

“But it is not, for Jonah’s deliverance, not his death, is the Lord’s goal. God did not want to kill Jonah; he wanted to call Jonah back to himself and to the mission he had given him. The Lord in his relentless mercy continues to pursue this rebellious man.” (Page 406)

The ESV Expository Commentary series will be a welcome addition to the toolbox of those who are committed to expounding the inerrant and infallible Word of God. It is biblically sound, theologically faithful, and practically helpful. I look forward to using it in my own preaching and teaching ministry.

—Daniel L. Akin, President, Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary

The ESV Expository Commentary series is one of the best, most useful building blocks for a Bible teacher’s basic library. Readily accessible to lay readers and at the same time sufficiently learned to assist experienced expositors, this twelve-volume set seems destined to become a standard Bible reference tool for serious students of Scripture around the world.

—Philip Graham Ryken, President, Wheaton College

The ESV Expository Commentary series is truly a treasure of outstanding biblical exposition and thoughtful biblical theology. Not only will readers find high-quality scholarship, but they will discover a readable, accessible, and well-designed commentary. Pastors, Bible teachers, and interested students will find this excellent resource to be an incredibly helpful and trustworthy guide. Highly recommended!

—David S. Dockery, Chancellor, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School

    Is there any reason that Logos version of this book does not give us the page numbers of the printed version? If it is the case, it limits its value, because I have to buy the printed version for my research writing. It makes me reconsider the purchasing of the Logos version.
