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.

Jonah by Eric C. Redmond (3 stars) – According to Redmond the book of Jonah is a call to evangelism. This is the major focus and application of the commentary. I didn't come away with any new perspectives on Jonah or Jesus. Redmond exhorts us to reach out more. But I didn't feel any better equipped from reading this book.
Micah by Bill Curtis (2 stars) – My complaint with Curtis' exposition is that he views the book almost entirely through a premillennialist lens. As I read, I was constantly thinking that he was missing the point. With most of Micah's prophesies Curtis points us to the second coming of Christ for fulfillment. No consideration was given in his commentary that fulfillment could be found in Jesus' *first* coming. He did little to address what Micah's message would have meant to his contemporaries. A focus on the Messiah's second coming would have been meaningless to Micah's immediate audience.
Nahum (4 stars) and Habakkuk (4 stars) by Ken Fentress (4 stars) – This volume is worth buying if only for Fentress' two contributions to it. Ken places both texts squarely in their historical settings, which really helped me understand them better. He helped me understand what the prophet was dealing with internally (personal fears, anger, etc.) and externally (politics, culture, etc.) He was a little weak on drawing practical applications. He was also a little weak on showing how the prophets ultimately pointed to Christ. But I found both commentaries beneficial overall.
dislike: different authors. I started with Jonah but my one year plan read Micah so I continued when I was thinking seriously of stopping after Jonah. I bought this book in this series because I loved the one on Galatians. The one on Jonah, for me, was terrible. I read it hearing the author 'yelling' (Eric Redmond) - absolutely 99% evangelism and the Great Commission. If that wasn't mentioned on every single page- sometimes multiple times - I'd eat my hat! I listened and watched Tim Mackie's Jonah series on youtube and got so much more out of it than reading this. I did get a few things out of this and some of the questons at the end of each section were helpful but as his entire point seemed to be to convince the reader that their friends were going to hell because they weren't caring enough to preach the Gospel to them, then I can honestly say he succeeded! and yes, I'm grateful my heart and mind 'argued' with this pastor and I realized I'm seriously lacking in evangelism. for that I'm grateful because he did get that message across! I think if i'd read it AFTER watching the tim mackie sermons I'd been more ready for it.
th nahum and habakkuk are writeen by a 3rd author Ken Fentress. I'm looking forward to reading these after I get to those books in my reading plan!
overall I give this book a 4 - Micah to me was wroth a 5. and I think anyone can get something out of these - I admit I tend to read for information - gimme the list and these aren't necessarily like that. they're sermon style and can be read like a book - at least Galatians and the first 2 in this book can be - t hey stand alone, even without reading the Scripture side by side not like the study notes ina study Bible wehre you look and fin the verse and a meaning - these are meant to be read and meditated on I'd say (thought over prayerfully)
