Most commentaries explore the text to understand its meaning and to aid the reader in better study of the text. A commentary may point out unique phrases or reference a verse of verses inside of the context of the chapter and/or book. This can be a very helpful resource in understanding Scripture.
The Christ-Centered Exposition commentaries are different. Each volume has the intent of seeing Christ honored with each passage exposited. In Exalting Jesus in John, the authors seek to see Christ honored as they comment on the workings and life of Jesus as seen through the eyes of John.
I really appreciated how the authors broke the Book of John in sections and highlighted key teachings and applications for the reader. Then they ask a series of questions for the reading to take the principles learned and apply them. In this way, this series serves as a commentary and a Bible study in one.
I recommned this series for its unique perspective on Bible commenting and suggest that it also be used for small group study.
