Kerux opens up each text of the Bible by explaining the message of the text to the original audience, unpacking the timeless truth of that passage, and finally pro- viding communication insights for conveying that truth to a contemporary audience. Unlike any other commentary series, each volume is written by a biblical scholar and a working pastor or homiletics profes- sional in partnership. Inclusion of a preaching author means that the commentary is centered on the biblical insights that are useful to a pastor and effective communication strategies and illustrations for each passage. Readers will feel the benefits of this throughout, as a resource designed and written with the real needs of regular proclamation always in sight. Kerux strengthens a pastor’s clear and focused presentation of a text, as the included biblical insights are crafted to support the main argument of the passage, without undue extrane- ous information. Commentaries marketed to pastors tend to be too technical for the use of most preachers and often lack guidance for the transition from exposition to proclamation. But Kerux enhances the pastor’s ability to deliver a sermon that is biblical, cohesive, and dynamic by keeping the length of commentary manageable and at an accessible level, while also offering effective, creative strategies for delivering the message of the text.
