Editorial Reviews

Review

"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, professor of systematic and practical theology at Reformed Theological Seminary, Jackson, MS

"Some commentaries lose the forest for the trees, and others the trees for the forest. This series promises to be both exegetically sensitive and theologically faithful." Mark Dever, Capitol Hill Baptist Church, Washington, DC

"A canonical, Reformed expositional commentary has long been a desideratum, and we are now in debt to this gifted team of pastor-theologians for bringing it to pass." J. Ligon Duncan, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS

"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, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, SC

I am a youth pastor and have been looking for a good commentary.

Ryken provides a clear look at the qualifications for these two offices, something that is highly beneficial for the church today.

Dr. Ryken's commentary of 1st Timothy is clear and concise. Unlike other commentaries which seem to cater to the Theological Elite, this commentary (like the others in the Reformed Expository Commentary series) is designed with the "laymen in the pew" in mind. I appreciate Dr. Ryken's dedication to doctrinal purity and his pastor's heart in conveying the information contained in this great book of the Bible.

I approached this commentary like a calf approaches a new gate. I chose that country metaphor because to me Philip Graham Ryken is big city. He dwells in heights beyond my intelligence. Recently installed as the president of Wheaton College, Ryken holds a D.Phil. from Oxford. He was for many years the senior minister of Philadelphia's historic Tenth Presbyterian Church, as well as an author and editor. He is the coeditor of the Reformed Expository Commentary series. I'm not any of those.

My not holding to Reformed or Covenant Theology, especially accounted for my hesitation. However, there was no reason to fear. This is simply the best commentary I have ever read. Not having (yet) read any of the other commentaries in the series, I can't vouch for the editors' goal of each commentary in the series being accessible to both pastors and lay readers, but this one certainly is. Ryken does a masterful job of getting the point across in a nontechnical, yet scholarly way. His experience as a pastor made him particularly suited to write this commentary. He had a way of getting into Paul, Timothy and my head.

If you want a better understanding of First Timothy, buy this commentary.

I am a youth pastor and have been looking for a good commentary. I was looking for a more in depth commentary and stories that I can use to relate to my audience. This commentary is more for preachers who are looking for a good commentary to put on their shelf and use weekly. But I would not rely on this commentary only for your sermon because it lacks Historical background.

By parkerj on February 13, 2014
Format: Hardcover
The Reformed Expository Commentary is a series that aims to provide a fresh exposition of the Biblical text for today's generation. In the series introduction the series editors (Phil Ryken & Richard Phillips) lay out the four fundamental commitments in this series. They are:

1) To be biblical - that is to pay careful attention to the text and exposit the Scriptures. There is less focus on the original language and structure and more focus on the story that the passage is telling.
2) Unashamedly Doctrinal - this series approaches the text from a Reformed perspective, as found in the Bible.
3) Redemptive-Historical - this means that they believe in the unity and continuity of the Bible, and interpret it in a Christ centered approach for all of Scripture.
4) Practical - by applying the truths found in the Scriptures to contemporary challenges in life.
Just a brief comment on aesthetics. This Commentary also looks great. While this isn't a huge selling point, and certainly not a reason to chose one commentary over another, I must say that this one looks really nice on the bookshelf, especially when you have more than one in the series.

Philip Graham Ryken is the contributor for the volume on 1 Timothy and I was thoroughly blessed by his contribution. His exposition is very readable for pastor and layman alike. This commentary, just like others in the series, reads like a book. I think it would be wonderful for sermon preparation, personal study or as a devotional read. His work is very helpful in understanding Paul's first letter to Timothy. His thoughts on the qualifications for Elders and Deacons are very clear.
