One weakness of nearly every commentary series is in the area of theology. While the commentators may present theological commentary, some specific theological beliefs must be approached as a study in order to be thorough. The Reformed Expository Commentary series has at least one volume that bridges the gap between theology text and commentary, The Incarnation in the Gospels.
The contributors are Daniel Doriani, Philip Ryken and Richard Phillips. Each author takes time to unpack the important incarnational narrative elements of Matthew, Luke and John. Weaving exposition of the pertinent texts along with theological explanation, The Incarnation in the Gospels could be described as a theology of Christmas.
Beyond theology, The Incarnation in the Gospels is a practical book for pastors. Why? Well, the final section of the book is a series of Christmas service suggestions and outlines. So, more than just theological exploration, The Incarnation in the Gospels provides a worshipful application of theology. In short, The Incarnation in the Gospels is an excellent and necessary way to begin a New Testament commentary series!
