Exalting Jesus in Genesis is part of the Christ-Centered Exposition Commentary series. Edited
by David Platt, Daniel L. Akin, and Tony Merida, this commentary series, to include 47
volumes when complete, takes a Christ-centered approach to expositing each book of the
Bible. Rather than a verse-by-verse approach, the authors have crafted chapters that explain
and apply key passages in their assigned Bible books.
Readers will learn to see Christ in all aspects of Scripture, and they will be encouraged by
the devotional nature of each exposition presented as sermons and 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.
