Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rick Phillips has produced a gem of a book on the prophet Zechariah! It is popular in its presentation but reflects a wide reading in Puritan theology, critical commentaries, and conservative Reformed writers. In a word, it has all the hallmarks of an edifying commentary: it is historically sensitive, and it is robustly theological, christological, and appropriately practical. Phillips reminds us in his methodology that what God has done and will do for the people of God always precedes what God expects of his people. I wholeheartedly commend this work for pastors and laypeople." Bryan Estelle, associate professor of Old Testament, Westminster Seminary California

"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

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

"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 III, First Presbyterian Church, Jackson, MS

More About the Author

Rick Phillips was raised in an Army family an grew up on posts around America. After graduating from the University of Michigan, he followed his father and grandfather by serving as a tank officer. While in graduate school in Philadelphia, his mother urged him to start attending church again, so Rick visited nearby Tenth Presbyterian Church. The message he heard that night changed his life, a sermon from the Old Testament book of Hosea about God's redeeming love for sinners through the cross of Jesus Christ. Surrendering his life to the love of Christ, Rick became active in Officer's Christian Fellowship during the years he was teaching leadership at West Point. He began leading a Bible study for students, then was asked to write a daily devotional, and then to preach at Christian meetings. Through these experiences, he and his wife concluded that God was calling Rick into a full-time pulpit ministry, so they left the Army and embarked on fulfilling God's call to the ordained ministry.

Rick tries the write the kind of books that have ministered so powerfully in his own life. Mainly, these are books of biblical exposition. His writing heroes are James M. Boice, Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Charles Haddon Spurgeon, and similar writers of biblical teaching. Some of his books seek to provide clear biblical teaching to important matters of practical living, such as manhood and relationships. He is grateful to God for the privilege of ministering to so many people through his books, desiring above all that God's Word would be clearly, faithfully, and passionately set forth.

Dr. Phillips serves as senior minister of Second Presbyterian Church in downtown Greenville, SC. Previously, he pastored in Coral Springs, FL and Philadelphia, PA. He usually preaches morning and evening and his sermons can be heard on Sermon Audio and on the church website: www.secondpca.org. (Live services are also available on video.) Rick frequently speaks at conferences on the Bible and theology and is active in overseas missions, especially in East Africa. In addition to his ministry duties, Rick likes to spend time with his wife and five children. He is a loyal follower of his alma mater, the Michigan Wolverines, and is an avid fan of the Boston Red Sox.

Format: Hardcover
I am massively humbled and thankful to God for empowering Pastor Phillips to write this commentary. The book is the product and labor of two separate preaching series through the book of Zechariah and if the preaching produced anything like the reading of the book I pray and hope that Pastor Phillips will see fit to go through Zechariah again. I could comment on the scholarly work, incredible application, accessible language and readability, but the thing I want to focus on, is the same focus of this book, Jesus. Every page preached Christ and displayed Christ as the great hope of the returning exiles and the only hope for any of us. I am hard pressed to remember a time when I have literally been sent to my knees in holy awe from a commentary...but in reading this one I spent half of my time there. Enjoy the glory of Zechariah and the wonderful reflection seen in Phillips commentary. May you become entrance with Jesus just as Zechariah was in the visions God gave Him, grace+peace

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.

Aesthetically this commentary looks great on the shelf. 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.

The volume on Zechariah is written by Richard Phillips. "These messages were first preaching in the evening services of Tenth Presbyterian Church in Philadelphia from November 2000 to July 2001, and again as an evening series at First Presbyterian Church of Coral Springs/Margate, Florida, in 2005 and 2006." The message of Zechariah focuses on a broken-down people, returning to a broken-down city with a broken-down temple. Phillips points out that this is a great message for us to hear today.

Format: Hardcover
I own several commentaries on the book of Zechariah. Meredith Kline's Glory in Our Midst is my favorite and Richard Phillips' is not. Not to let you think that Kline's is just better than Phillips'. No, Phillips just wrote a poor commentary on Zechariah. I find myself turning to Phillips' commentary when I want to find the most obscure interpretation of a passage. For instance, in the third vision of Zechariah, Phillips thinks that the man with a measuring line is some dude trying to figure stuff out on his own and God tells him to stop because he is measuring the wrong way. Most of the other commentators believe that this is Jesus Christ - from Kline to J. Vernon McGee. And you know you are wrong if both of those guys disagree with you. (McGee literally Walked through the Bible.) This is just one example of many. Pastor Phillips seems to have chosen the interpretation of a passage where it would lead to the most application for his congregation. I do value some of the application points in his book, but find his scholarly work to be sadly lacking.

I loved the way Richard Phillips wrote this expository for the common man, easy to read, easy to comprehend. A great addition to the library of other reformed expository commentaries. I recommend this book!
