"An outstanding provision for pastors engaged in regular pulpit ministry. Those of us who regularly preach need commentaries that provide the best biblical scholarship and also understand the challenges of today's pastorate. The Reformed Expository Commentary series, prepared by Reformed preachers of great scholarly ability, ably speaks to both needs." --Bryan Chapell
"Following on from his Galatians volume, Phil Ryken provides us with another cornucopia of insight and knowledge. Few portions of the Scripture affect the way we understand what the church in the twenty-first century should look like more than does 1 Timothy, and few contemporary guides could better guide us through these issues than Phil Ryken. This volume signals preaching and teaching at its very best, a model for all preachers in our time." --Derek W. H. Thomas
"Here is exposition modeled by pastors with scholarly gifts and by scholars with pastors' hearts. Exegetical and theological reliability, redemptive historical sensitivity, a Christ-centered focus, and contemporary practical application -- these are the promised hallmarks of the series. May it serve as a model to encourage and enthuse a new generation to love the Word of God and to rediscover the life-transforming power of expository preaching!" --Sinclair Ferguson
