A Commentary for Preachers, Written by a Preacher
The noted theologian J.I. Packer tells us that throughout the history of the church, “working pastors have been proving themselves to be the best of all Bible expositors. Kent Hughes stands in this great tradition, and his exciting expositions uphold it worthily.” I’ve recently been reading this series, and I completely agree with Dr. Packer.
Inspiring Scholarship Combined with Superb Writing
Hughes is not only a respected Bible scholar, but he is also a gifted writer. Some commentators feel obliged to dissect each and every word, and, although this is helpful, sometimes it can be difficult reading. Hughes never stumbles. His thoughts flow effortlessly as he describes each Bible passage in a way that’s easy to visualize.
Not Too Much Nor Too Little
Hughes gives each passage the exact amount of attention it deserves. For example, Genesis 49 is the chapter where the dying patriarch, Jacob, gathers his 12 sons for the blessing. Hughes devotes several chapters of his commentary to narrate this blessing. He details the blessings and curses delivered to each son, explaining the meaning of each phrase. He alerts us to words of prophecy, and then he leads us forward in the Bible to see where each prophecy was fulfilled. I found this a beautiful piece of writing and scholarship. It’s typical of Hughes’ work.
Preaching That Pleases God
In his introduction, Hughes has a lot to say about preaching in a way that is pleasing to God. He says that with the right frame of mind, “we will not be preaching our own thoughts about God’s Word, but God’s actual Word, his logos. This is fundamental to pleasing him in preaching.” Hughes certainly practices what he preaches.
