Bible Commentary

As with all book-sellers, the offer of a book for sale should not be taken as an endorsement of its entire content. There is hardly a commentator anywhere, even among the very good ones like John Phillips or Harry Ironside, who will not occasionaly criticise the AV text. To dismiss them all, on that account, is to miss out on much else that is very good. Eat the meat and spit out the bones

Studies in Galatians.  £7.95  

M.R.DeHaanMD., Kregel, 1960, 183pp., paperback.

Dr. DeHaan wrote, “This Epistle to the Galatians was written to the Gentiles in Galatia who had believed the Gospel. But the message is as much needed, and even more, in these days of a mongrel gospel of grace and law.” Twenty-two studies.

 

Expository Discourses on the Book of Genesis. £13.00. (Cover not as shown) 

Andrew Fuller, Forgotten Books, Orig. 1836, Modern reprint, 384 pp., paperback.

Andrew Fuller (1754-1815) was a Particular Baptist ministering in England. Though I do not share the basic tenets of reformed Calvinists, their devotional and expositional skills can sometimes be a great blessing. This is a helpful commentary. (07/16)

A Comment on Ruth. £10.00  

Thomas Fuller, Forgotten Books, Original 1650, 213 pp., paperback.

"Lit up with flashes of his irrepressible wit." Spurgeon.

Cover not as shown

`Above all others a preacher's book: I should think more discourses have been suggested by it than by any other uninspired volume. I have often resorted to it when my own fire has been burning low, and I have seldom failed to find a glowing coal upon Gurnall's hearth.' - C H Spurgeon.

The Contemplations of Bishop Hall. £22.50   

Joseph Hall, Tentmaker Publications, 2009 (Originally 1860), 602 pp., hardback.

"Need I commend Bishop Hall's Contemplations to your affectionate attention? What sound sense! What concealed learning! His style is pithy and witty...and has a sacred unction about it..." C. H. Spurgeon. "Though weak, I often spent two hours in my evening retirements and prayed over my Greek Testament and Bishop Hall's most excellent contemplations." George Whitefield. Hall was born in 1574, on the heels of the Reformation. Like others of his day, he appears to have a Calvinistic view but this is not a disraction. Like his contemporary, John Trapp, he is devout, plain, powerful and memorable. This is a big book, almost A4.

Commentary on the Whole Bible.  £55.00  

Matthew Henry, Hardback, 6 Volumes, Boxed

Every minister ought to read Matthew Henry entirely and carefully through once at least.” Spurgeon. Chiefly a devotional commentary. Arguably the best commentary on the market except for prophecy.

The Book of Malachi. £10.00  

James W. Knox, 2010, 317 pp., paperback.

The Book of Titus.  £7.00  

James W. Knox. 2001, 191 pp., paperback..

"The fourth volume in the Christ-Honoring (sic) Commentary Series began as a term paper in a Pastoral Epistles course, lay in a file cabinet for two decades, and now emerges to deal with the ministry, church life and personal holiness."

The Book of Zechariah.  £8.00  

James W. Knox. 1998, 261 pp., paperback.

"The second volume of the Christ-Honoring (sic) Commentary Series tackles what many believe to be the most difficult book in the Bible. verse by verse and word by word exposition will give the reader insight and understanding into the literal truth of this portion of prophetic scripture."

The Book of Revelation. £14.00, Clarence Larkin, 1919, hardback with d.j., 210 pp. 

"The writer's aim has been to prepare a standard work... from the Futuristic standpoint, that can be used as a textbook in theological seminaries and Bible schools..." A helpful work again from brother Clarence, only marred by a printed picture of 'Jesus' in the front.

Commentary on Galatians.  £9.50  

Martin Luther, Kregel, 1979, 388pp., paperback. (Cover not as shown).

“This is an outstanding, doctrinally sound, comprehensive commentary. The verse-by-verse exposition offers penetrating insights into Luther’s theology. It is also a careful analysis and clear presentation of Paul’s doctrine, written for all to understand.” A wonderful antidote to the modern subtle additions of various forms of works to the Gospel.

Daniel - The Times of the Gentiles and the Times of Jerusalem. £25.00
J. A. Moorman, Old Paths Publications, 2017, 346 pp. paperback.

"Premillenial, Dispensational, King James Version. A Commentary and Survey Series: Based on Sound and Influential Bible Institute Material from a Past Generation." Personally, this is far and away the best commentary on Daniel I have ever read. It is packed with information, always faithful to the KJV, and frequently correcting even mainstream premillenial teachings. (C.T)

J. A. Moorman, Old Paths Publications, 2017, 651 pp. paperback.

"Here's the book that concludes and expands the book  of Daniel. Premillenial, Dispensational, King James Version. A Commentary and Survey Series: Based on Sound and Influential Bible Institute Material from a Past Generation."

Commentaries by John Phillips.

John Phillips was an English preacher who studied, I believe, under Stephen Olford. He ministered in the U.S. for many years. His commentaries are based on the KJV with a few rare corrections to the text. I find them of great help in sermon preparation as, like Olford, he was very skilled in the 'art of apt alliteration.' They are devotional and exhibit a wide amount fo reading. Great for non-preachers too.

Commentaries by Dr. Peter S. Ruckman. (Many prices reduced Sept. 2020)

All of Dr. Ruckman's commentaries almost unique inasmuch as the KJV text is never departed from. They are also almost unique inasmuch as his criticisms of modern scholars are often caustic. The former uniqueness makes him unpopular with modern translators and the latter makes him unpopular with many truly saved and sound brethren. Much very helpful commentary with the exception of the teaching regarding O.T. salvation by faith plus works. I include them because I use them myself and find them very helpful. The choice, of course, is yours!

The Book of Genesis. £17.00 paperback, £21.00 Red hardback.  

Bible Baptist Bookstore, 849 pp.

Genesis approaches the beginnings of the universe and man from a believing and doctrinal perspective. Evolution is opposed for the "fairy tale for grown-ups" that it is. The problems posed by the higher critics are examined and dealt with. The lives of the main characters of the book are dramatized in modern fashion, and Joseph is shown to be the greatest type of Christ in the Bible.

The Book of Joshua. £13.75 paper, £17.50 Red hardback. 

A commentary based on Dr. Ruckman's Sunday School classes on the first of the historical books of the Old Testament.  It deals with the historical accuracy of the conquest of Canaan under Israel's greatest general and the miracles associated with it.  Special attention is given to the prophetic application of the book to the Second Advent and to the practical applications that can be made to the Christian's spiritual warfare against the world, the flesh, and the Devil.  The geography of the book is tied into associated events in the rest of the Old Testament, with a map at the end to help the reader locate the major cities in Joshua, as well as the division of the tribes in the land.  406 pages. 

The Book of Psalms (Vol. 1). £14.50 paper.

Over one hundred sermon illustrations are presented with a vast amount of data on government, art, music, sports, agriculture, history, domestics, war, and modern living. The ASV has been used extensively in this commentary to show its striking inferiority to the AV.

.The Book of Ecclesiastes. £13.50 paperback, £20.00 Red hardback.

Joseph A. Seiss, Kregel, 1870-84, 536 pp., paperback

 "Joseph Seiss (1823-1904) was one of the most popular and powerful Lutheran preachers of the nineteenth century." A valuable work for any premillenial student of the word of God. Seiss always takes literally were possible. This is a very reverent, sober and stirring study of the Revelation, which clears many difficulties. There are one or two weird departures from sound exposition but, nevertheless, a very helpful work on the whole.

The Complete Bible Commentary. £17.50
George Williams, Kregel, 1058 pp., paper.

Two of the godliest men I have ever met in my forty years as a believer, both recommended George Williams' Commentary to me. A relative of his told me that sometimes preaching in the street, he would get stoned until the blood was running in his shoes. This truly is a gem of a Commentary. Being a late 19th century preacher, he fell for the R.V. as did most of his contemporaries. References to the R.V. are the only major down-side to this work. CT.
