About The Series

God’s Word, Your Guide

Augustine said, “Where Scripture speaks, God speaks.” The Christ-Centered Exposition authors agree. We believe the Word is God-breathed, authoritative and timeless, so we strive to handle text carefully and accurately. This devotional-style commentary series provides pastors with a practical application of God’s written word, exalting Jesus as the hero of every book.


“It’s one thing to know Bible stories; it's another to know the story of the Bible.”
