“From eternity to eternity, God’s Word reveals his eternal and global plan to bless the nations with the knowledge of his Son. It warms my heart to know these volumes are being provided to the church, with the intention to bless the nations with access to faithful, solid exposition of the Scriptures. May God use this to fill the earth with the knowledge of his glory as the waters cover the sea.”
