"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

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. "By God's grace in Christ, the role he has assigned to us is no less significant than the greatest deeds ever performed by God's choicest saints. Like Zechariah's generation, God would lift up our heads with a fresh vision of his message of old: 'Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the Lord.' (Zech. 4:6)" None of the people of God in Zechariah have names that stand out like David, Moses, Paul, or Abraham, but they are still vitally important in seeing God's plan for His people.
Phillips provides a commentary that proves to be highly beneficial for pastor, teacher or lay-person. For the pastor/teacher this commentary will communicate the broad range of reading and studying that Phillips has done in a form that will help craft sermons or a teaching series. For the lay-person this commentary proves to be highly readable and will definitely be a great tool to be used while studying Zechariah. The Reformed Expository Commentary series continues to be a favorite of mine and this is another great volume.
I received a free copy of this commentary from P&R Publishing in exchange for an honest review.
