Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rick Phillips is a uniquely gifted expositor, blessed with an astute mind for opening the biblical text. His skills are obvious in explaining the God-intended meaning of Scripture and showing its life-changing relevance. Distinctly reformed and exegetically sound, this commentary is an invaluable treasure house of what you need to understand the biblical passages of the prophets Jonah and Micah. If you are a preacher, teacher, or an interested reader of Scripture, this book is a must read." --Steven J. Lawson, Senior Pastor, Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, Mobile, Alabama

"Richard Phillip integrates sound exegesis, theological orthodoxy, and practical application in this volume. Focusing on grace, without losing a sense of God's righteousness, he illuminates the familiar story of Jonah and the lesser-known message of Micah. Expositors of Micah will be particularly pleased to find this sadly neglected prophet expounded in depth." --Paul R. House, Associate Dean and Professor of Divinity, Old Testament, Beeson Divinity School, Samford University, Birmingham, Alabama

"Much more than just insightful comments on the Scripture, these are true expositions of the prophetic words speaking with prophetic power. Each of these expositions takes us into the very heart of grace. In Jonah, Phillips shows that the great challenge is not simply to believe the gospel of grace, but to live it in reaching out to the lost. In Micah, we are presented with the mystery of great divine judgment against his people's sin and the astounding grace of a God who pardons our sins and casts them into the depth of the sea." --Mark E. Ross, Associate Dean and First Presbyterian Church John R. de Witt Chair of Systematic Theology, Erskine Theological Seminary, Due West, South Carolina, and Director of the Institute for Reformed Worship

This by far is the best commentary that I have read on the book of Jonah. Richard Phillips brings out New Testament theology in an Old Testament book. His comparison to the death and resurrection of Jesus compared to the 3 days of horror in the belly of the great fish was outstanding. Reformed theology in the Old Testament. This is a must read for all pastors and bible teachers.

The reason this makes for such good preparation is because it is not too technical, which is not always my favorite but when seeking to preach the Old Testament the ability to make simple preparation and proper application this was a good commentary to help.

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.

I have previously read through 5 other Old Testament volumes in this series with Jonah & Micah by Richard Phillips being the 6th. One feature that has continued to stand out for me in these OT volumes, and once again does so in Phillips work, is the ability of the author to hold true to the aforementioned commitments in a way that elevates the reader's understanding of the passage and provides great practical help as well. Much of the time in Phillips commentary he moves seamlessly between expounding the passage in it's context to how it directly applies to believers today.

The commentary is not bad. I enjoyed a lot of it.

However, I just cannot get over his treatment of Jonah 3:1-4. It's as if he had never read Jonah chapter 4. It sounds a lot more like optimistic fiction based on Jonah, trying to make him look as good as possible before chapter 4 comes along. Repentance would've led Jonah to embrace Nineveh's turning from their evil and God's mercy toward them, but that's not what happened in chapter 4.

I would recommend picking up a different commentary, at least for Jonah.
