The Student Or Pastor With A Small But Growing Library, As Well As The Pastor Possessing An Extensive One, Will Welcome The Opportunity To Secure This Reprint Of Spurgeon S Catalog Of Biblical Commentaries And Expositions Once You Begin To Dip Into This Volume It Will Become A Faithful Friend By Your Side Worth Its Weight In Gold New Commentaries On The Bible Abound, But Often The Cutting Edge Is Dull With Few Exceptions, The Old Works Are Better By Far Spurgeon S Commenting And Commentaries Is Invaluable For Identifying The Best Works Of Past Generations, Many Of Which Have Been Reprinted In Our Day Dr Robert P Martin We actually had to read this for Greyfriars I pretty much skimmed through it since there wasn t much to read, only reference The one reference I remember was Spurgeon s praise for Moses Stuart s commentary on the book of Revelation I think we can include C Spurgeon in the preterist camp after all, even though he often gets labeled as an historicist. This is a great resource. Invaluable in its day, still quite valuable in ours A similar work produced today by a similar man would be a rare treat, and a very helpful resource Somehow I doubt that Carson s short book on commentaries has the same room for wit that Spurgeon shows here He gives an opening lecture recommending the best commentators, another on the act of commenting in the service, and then surveys almost 1500 works, giving a couple sentences of evaluation, both commendation and criticism He closes with an address on eccentric preachers, celebrating the diversity of preaching gifts God has given, as long as Christ is at the center Great stuff Helpful instruction on the use of study helps, and even instruction on clearly drawing out from the text of Scripture Good stuff. This was a joy to read 4th volume of Spurgeon s Lectures to My Students Very funny. This book is Spurgeon s Goodreads feed.
