I know no expositor who unites so many advantages as Doddridge; whether you regard the fidelity of his version, the fullness and perspicuity of his composition, the utility of his general and historical information, the impartiality of his doctrinal comments, or, lastly, the piety and pastoral earnestness of his moral and religious applications.

Philip Doddridge (1702–1751) was born in London and educated at the Dissenting academy at Kibworth in Leicestershire. In 1723 he became the first principal of the Daventry Academy and started his pastorate of an independent congregation at Northampton. His popularity and influence grew with the help of his memorable sermons and successful books, and he maintained a circle of influential independent religious thinkers and writers, including fellow Dissenter Isaac Watts. He was a prolific writer, penning over 400 hymns, plus publishing tracts, sermons, books, essays, and more. In 1736, King's College and Robert Gordon's College, both in Aberdeen, awarded Doddridge a Doctorate of Divinity for his theological contributions.

The academy he started would later be formed into New College, London, and almost 300 hundred years later, the church he pastored for more than 20 years is still unofficially known as "Doddridge Church" and is located on Doddridge Street, Northampton.

    They really ought to include that Edwards and Spurgeon both used this commentary set.

    Doddridge's NT commentary the "Family Expositor" is contained in this set. This was the commentary that Jonathan Edwards used most. Edwards' Blank Bible is littered with all kinds of quotes from Doddridge's Family Expositor. The Expositor is an amazing work. It is a paraphrase of the NT with study notes. Essentually it's the puritan version of a study Bible. Spurgeon also speaks highly of this commentary: "I know no expositor who unites so many advantages as Doddridge; whether you regard the fidelity of his version, the fullness and perspicuity of his composition, the utility of his general and historical information, the impartiality of his doctrinal comments, or, lastly, the piety and pastoral earnestness of his moral and religious applications." If you're in to the old Puritan style commentaries, you wont be dissapointed with this set.

    It's worth it just for the hymns alone.
