About the Author
Sinclair Buchanan Ferguson retired in 2013 as Senior Minister of First Presbyterian Church in Columbia, South Carolina, and returned to his native Scotland. Prior to this he held the Charles Krahe chair for Systematic Theology at Westminster Theological Seminary and served Church of Scotland congregations in Unst (Shetland) and Glasgow (St George's Tron). He received his Ph.D. from the University of Aberdeen (1971).
Dr Ferguson has authored several books published by the Trust, of which he is a trustee, and a former editor. He retains his position as Professor of Systematic Theology at Redeemer Seminary, Dallas, Texas, and serves as a Teaching Fellow with Ligonier Ministries. He continues to preach God's Word in churches and at conferences.
Sinclair and his wife Dorothy have three sons, a daughter, three grandsons, and three granddaughters.
Top customer reviews
The cover of my edition of this book, printed in 2005, is not overly cheesy (as the last reviewer charged). But an older volume in this series (Ferguson's Let's Study Philippians -- also great) does have an awful cover, so my guess is they updated it recently.
The chapters (73 in all) are short and accessible. They are packed with reliable and lively exegesis, with a theologically strong redemptive-historical approach. He pauses to make solid and penetrating practical applications as he goes. There are additional study questions in the back that tie themes from various chapters together.
If I were to pick just one commentary to use for a small group Bible study of lay people, or a teacher's guide for an adult Christian ed. class, this would be it.
Other good commentaries for teaching and preaching:
R. Kent Hughes (1989, Reformed sermons, solid if a little less than contemporary); Tom Wright, Mark for Everyone (2001 --excellent concise exegesis and insights. Yes, the NPP theology is troublesome at a feww junctures, but it does not come into play here that I see); Mark Horne (2004 -- Reformed, PCA, lengthy -- references Austin Farrar alot); William Lane (NICNT -- extensive exegesis).
