"Few series of volumes gives us so much pleasure to review as the 'Expositor's Bible.' We never open a volume without expecting to find in it much that is inspiriting and much that is suggestive, and we are never disappointed. We have no hesitation in advising any Clergyman who is thinking of expounding a book of Scripture to his congregation to procure, as one of his most valuable aids, the right volume of the 'Expositor's Bible.'"

Second Series.

Subscription Price, 24s. Separate Volumes, 7s. 6d. each.

The Epistle to the Galatians
By the Rev. Prof. G. G. FINDLAY, B.A., Headingley College, Leeds.

"In this volume we have the mature results of broad and accurate scholarship, exegetical tact, and a firm grasp of the great principles underlying the Gospel of Paul presented in a form so lucid and attractive that every thoughtful reader can enjoy it."—Professor Beet.

The Book of Isaiah
Chapters I.-XXXIX.
By the Rev. Prof. G. ADAM SMITH, M.A., D.D.

"This is a very attractive book. Mr. George Adam Smith has evidently such a mastery of the scholarship of his subject that it would be a sheer impertinence for most scholars, even though tolerable Hebraists, to criticise his translations; and certainly it is not the intention of the present reviewer to attempt anything of the kind, to do which he is absolutely incompetent. All we desire is to let English readers know how very lucid, impressive—and, indeed, how vivid—a study of Isaiah is within their reach; the fault of the book, if it has a fault, being rather that it finds too many points of connection between Isaiah and our modern world, than that it finds too few. In other words, no one can say that the book is not full of life."—Spectator.

The Pastoral Epistles
By the Rev. ALFRED PLUMMER, D.D., Master of University
College, Durham.

"An admirable sample of what popular theology ought to be."—Saturday Review.

"The treatment is throughout scholarlike, lucid, thoughtful."—Guardian.

The First Epistle to the Corinthians
By the Rev. Prof. MARCUS DODS, D.D.

"A clear, close, unaffected, unostentatious exposition, not verse by verse, but thought after thought, of this most interesting perhaps, and certainly most various, of all the Apostle's writings."—London Quarterly Review.

The Epistles of St. John
By the Right Rev. W. ALEXANDER, D.D., Lord Bishop
of Derry and Raphoe.

"These commentaries are explicitly intended to help the preacher, and in Dr. Alexander's 'Discourses' they will find material ready shaped to their hand—not facts only, but imagery, references, and allusions, none of them cheap or commonplace, and some of them felicitous in a high degree."—Guardian.

The Revelation of St. John
By the Rev. Prof. W. MILLIGAN, D.D., of the University
of Aberdeen.

"Lucid, scholarly."—Academy.

"The style is admirably lucid, expressive, and withal stately. The task of the reader could not possibly be easier, and in the case of such an abstruse theme the result is no small feat of intellectual and literary ingenuity."—Aberdeen Free Press.


Third Series.

Subscription Price, 24s. Separate Volumes, 7s. 6d. each.

Judges and Ruth
By the Rev. R. A. WATSON, D.D.

"This volume deals chiefly with a book considered by some one of the most difficult of expositions from a Christian point of view. While feeling this to be the case, the writer is able to deduce valuable instruction from the history by the only legitimate mode, that of remembering that the character and laws of God are essentially unchangeable, though the amount of their revelation must vary with the capacity of those who receive it.... The moralisings on the Book of Ruth are also most excellent, and just what are adapted to present circumstances."—Spectator.

The Prophecies of Jeremiah
With a Sketch of his Life and Times.
By the Rev. C. J. BALL, M.A., Chaplain of Lincoln's Inn.

"Mr. Ball brings competent knowledge to his task.... A useful running commentary."—Saturday Review.

"It consists of an interesting and sympathetic delineation of the prophet's life and character, of a new translation, and of expository remarks, which are partly critical and partly homiletic. The critical portion will be prized most, as it exhibits deep learning, breadth of view, and clear insight into the prophet's meaning."—Manchester Examiner.

The Book of Exodus
By the Very Rev. G. A. CHADWICK, D.D., Dean of Armagh.

"Marked by sound exegesis, common sense, and a devotional spirit."—Record.

"Every part of the book is replete with instruction and interest, and a unity of thought and purpose pervades it all."—Glasgow Herald.

The Gospel of St. Matthew
By the Rev. J. MONRO GIBSON, D.D., Author of "The
Ages before Moses," etc.

"A careful exposition in which one important part is not slightly dealt with while disproportionate space is given to another, but by studied economy of labour and space due care and labour are given to every part. The exposition is sober, reverent, and systematic; it is also enlightened and well informed."—London Quarterly Review.

The Gospel of St. Luke
By the Rev. HENRY BURTON, M.A.

"Full of vivid illustration and fresh, bright exposition."—Record.

"In the unfolding of truth Mr. Burton writes as a poet. There is glow and colour and melody in his descriptions. Often there are passages of great beauty."—Methodist Recorder.

The Book of Isaiah
Chapters XL. to LXVI.
By the Rev. Prof. G. ADAM SMITH, M.A., D.D.

"A work of no ordinary merit; indeed, it is but rare that such exegetical power and mature scholarship are united with an ease of style and a fertility of modern illustration that leave but little to desire."—Speaker.


Fourth Series.

Subscription Price, 24s. Separate Volumes, 7s. 6d. each.

The Gospel of St. John. Vol. I.
By the Rev. Prof. MARCUS DODS, D.D.

"Dr. Dods' exposition, besides being characterised by all the literary grace by which his previous works are distinguished, is also thoroughly evangelical in tone, without, however, being at all narrow; while the arguments which this portion of Scripture so powerfully suggests in proof of the divinity of Christ are handled in such a way as will carry them home to all who accept the narrative as authentic."—Scotsman.

The Acts of the Apostles. Vol. I.
By the Rev. Prof. G. T. STOKES, D.D.

"One of the most valuable contributions to the history of the Primitive Church that have appeared within recent years."—Dundee Advertiser.

The Book of Leviticus
By the Rev. S. H. KELLOGG, D.D.

"The relation of law and gospel is grandly exhibited, and a difficult portion of Holy Writ explained in detail and with power."—Christian.

"He has certainly succeeded in investing with fresh interest this old book of laws."—Scotsman.

The Book of Proverbs
By the Rev. R. F. HORTON, M.A., D.D.

"Ably and freshly written."—Church Times.

"A book which may be read by all with pleasure and profit, and which, by ministers of all orders, may be taken as a model of one kind of expository teaching."—Christian World.

"The expositor has done his work in a most masterly fashion."—Glasgow Herald.

The Epistles of St. James and St. Jude
By the Rev. A. PLUMMER, D.D., Master of University
College, Durham.

"It is even a better piece of work than his former volume on the Pastoral Epistles. It contains everything that the student can desire by way of introduction to the two Epistles, while for those who read with an eye to the manufacture of sermons, or for their own edification, the doctrinal and moral lessons are developed in a style redolent of books, yet singularly easy and unaffected. Points of interest abound."—Saturday Review.

"A very able and interesting exposition.... An excellent example of Scriptural exegesis."—Academy.

The Book of Ecclesiastes
With a New Translation.
By the Rev. SAMUEL COX, D.D.

"The most luminous, original, and practical exposition of Ecclesiastes which is within the reach of ordinary English readers."—Speaker.

"Dr. Cox's work is likely to count as one of the most interesting of the many interesting studies of which Ecclesiastes has been the basis."—Guardian.


Fifth Series.

Subscription Price, 24s. Separate Volumes, 7s. 6d. each.

The Epistles to the Thessalonians
By the Rev. JAMES DENNEY, D.D.

"As an expositor we are able to say that Mr. Denney seems to have entered very fully into the spirit of the Apostle Paul, and to have succeeded in expressing very clearly, and impressing very forcibly, the general meaning of the Apostle's words.... It is a very ably written work, and one which is well calculated to make the Apostle's teaching in these two epistles more intelligible and more telling."—Scotsman.

The Book of Job
By the Rev. R. S. WATSON, D.D., Author of "Gospels
of Yesterday," etc.

"Dr. Watson does not fall behind his predecessors in doing justice to this magnificent effort of Hebrew genius or inspiration. The opening scene on earth and the opening scene in heaven are brought before us with graphic power, and the problem raised by the situation of Job by the unmerited suffering of the good man stated and discussed with much force and philosophical insight. Dr. Watson has written with conspicuous ability and a thorough mastery of his subject."—Scotsman.

The Gospel of St. John. Vol. II.

"Dr. Dods appears to us always to write with clearness and vigour.... He has the gift of lucid expression, and by means of apt illustrations he avoids the cardinal sin of dryness, so that the interest even of the general reader will not flag as he smoothly glides through these chapters."—Guardian.

The Epistle to the Ephesians
By the Rev. Prof. G. G. FINDLAY, B.A.

"Every page shows that he has made a minute and careful examination of the text, while in every chapter there are inferences drawn and suggestions thrown out which will find their way into many sermons. They who know this Epistle best will be the first to acknowledge the value of Prof. Findlay's exposition."—Expositor.

The Acts of the Apostles. Vol. II.
By the Rev. Prof. G. T. STOKES, D.D.

"The second volume is as readable as the first, full of learning without a spice of pedantry.... The volume is highly to be commended for knowledge, sobriety, and manly piety."—Saturday Review.

The Psalms. Vol. I.

"Dr. Maclaren has evidently mastered his subject with the aid of the best authorities, and has put the results of his studies before his readers in a most attractive form; and if we add that his commentary really helps to the better understanding of the Psalms, that, far from degrading, it vivifies and illuminates these sublime stories, and that it is written in a charming style, very seldom falling below the dignity of the subject, we believe we only give it the praise which is its due."—Scotsman.


Sixth Series.

Subscription Price, 24s. Separate Volumes, 7s. 6d. each.

The Epistle to the Philippians
By the Rev. Principal RAINY, D.D.

"A piece of good and thorough work, the work of a sound and well-read expositor, and especially of an orthodox Scotch divine."—London Quarterly Review.

The First Book of Kings
By the Venerable F. W. FARRAR, D.D., F.R.S., Archdeacon
of Westminster.

"Dr. Farrar brings his versatile literary powers to bear upon these majestic and imposing scenes, with all his gifts of poetic description, his wealth of quotations, and his aptitude for picturesque comparisons."—Guardian.

Ezra, Nehemiah, and Esther
By the Rev. Prof. W. F. ADENEY, M.A.

"Mr. Adeney has evidently grasped the whole story with clearness and force: his portraits are lifelike; he has all the instinct of the expositor in high development. It is no small triumph to have done so well with one of the least pictorial and fascinating of Old Testament histories."—Independent.

The Book of Joshua
By the Rev. Prof. W. G. BLAIKIE, D.D., LL.D.

"We have no hesitation in saying that for every-day working purposes expositors of the Book of Joshua will find this volume more helpful than many more critical and modernised works.... His expositions are usually fresh and interesting, and there is an eye for the practical in all he writes."—Glasgow Herald.

The Psalms. Vol. II.

"The volume is as attractive as the first, and shows throughout the same high qualities of penetration and spiritual sympathy. Its pages give abundant evidence of care, critical study, and acquaintance with the best that our most competent scholars have contributed to the exposition of the Psalms."—Critical Review.

The Epistles of Peter
By the Rev. Prof. LUMBY, D.D., Cambridge.

"A sound and finely practical commentary."—Saturday Review.

"We have been impressed by the carefulness, fulness, and almost minuteness of the expositions which Dr. Lumby gives in this volume."—Literary World.
