This is a publishing first. For more than a century it has been widely recognised that there is a 'best commentary' list for every book in the Bible. Now they have been collected in one volume. It was C. H. Spurgeon who first drew up a definitive list of Bible commentaries but together these run into several volumes. In this major new work, the essential teachings have been distilled. Preserving the dignity of their own prose, the language has been edited where necessary for the modern reader. For Genesis, Calvin's classic exposition is included, and for Chronicles Matthew Henry is used. Other Old Testament writers include Edward Topsell, Charles Bridges and Spurgeon himself for the Psalms. In the New Testament, Luther writes masterfully on Romans, Charles Hodge on Corinthians and J. B Lightfoot on other letters by Paul. Here is a wonderful new resource for all students of the Bible whether they are professionals or lay people. The Greatest Bible Commentary in the World will become an essential part of any library.
