Christ-Centered Exposition: Exalting Jesus in John by Matt Carter and Josh Wredberg is a solid commentary that walks the reader through a rich book of the Bible in a down-to-earth and easy to apply manner.
The readability of the commentary with an overall fidelity to the text of the Scripture is a major strength. Another key asset to the book is its Christ-centered view – keeping Jesus as the main focus of the texts (rather than getting distracted by secondary and tertiary points).
The downside of the commentary is that the authors tend to smuggle in their theological bent in a way that sometimes stretches the exegesis of the text in order to fit the theological bent rather than the other way around.
