Overview

D. D. Whedon was an important nineteenth-century figure in the struggle between Calvinism and Arminianism. He devoted 25 years to completing his commentaries on the New Testament and, moreover, edited the Old Testament commentaries presented here. These commentaries—intended for popular use by laypeople—are comprehensive yet concise. They analyze the entire Bible, providing the background, history, message, and historical and contemporary relevance of each Old and New Testament book. Each volume includes introductions to the text, illustrations, and maps.

Scholarly yet readable, Whedon’s Commentary on the Old and New Testaments offers a comprehensive intellectual, historical, and spiritual survey of the riches found in God’s Word. In the Logos edition, each Scripture passage links to your favorite translation, and the volumes are easy to study side by side with your other commentaries. You can search by topic or Scripture passage with remarkably fast results.

Praise for the Print Edition

The New Testament part of the series is the ablest Methodist commentary since the days of Adam Clarke, and is in many respects superior to that monumental work. The Old Testament books were committed to various scholars who have wrought well, but unequally, on their respective tasks.

Southern Methodist Review

For the laborious work of construction, for accuracy of workmanship, and for general attraction of page, the present number of the series should be accepted with gratitude by the church.

Methodist Review

[We] seldom get hold of a book of ‘Notes on the Scriptures’ that we feel like sitting down to read carefully through; yet such has been our desire with these successive volumes.

  • Pages: 448

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

“No book in the sacred canon so intertwines itself with all other sacred books, and so interpenetrates all Bible history and prophesy, all secular and spiritual knowledge, as the Psalms.” In this volume, F. G. Hibbard focuses on the sacred lyrical poetry of Psalms, analyzing the language of the text and its many allusions. A strong focus is given to Psalms’ history, geography, archaeology, and interpretation.

With ample prolegomena discussing the chief points in criticism, and with well-condensed historical and critical introductions to the different Psalms, the several verses are clearly interpreted, with short and striking homiletic observations. The volume is a delightful addition to the abundant literature upon these inspired hymns, which have been the comfort and inspiration of devout hearts in all ages.

Christian Intelligencer

The introduction is a valuable treatise on historical, doctrinal, and prophetical aspects of the Psalms, the thorough study of which should not be omitted by the student who would avail himself of the author’s labors to aid him in acquiring a knowledge of this portion of the sacred Scriptures. The explanatory notes on the text are clear, concise, suggestive, and in every respect adapted to the purpose of exegesis.

Northern Christian Advocate

The notes will be found clear, concisely complete, and with the numerous object-pictures very illustrative of the text. We cannot but believe that this will be a favorite volume with all our Bible readers and students.

Each book introduction includes the prophet’s biography and the text’s historical background, contents, and teaching.

One of the best of the Old Testament series. Its introductions . . . are abreast with modern scholarship, with which they show intimate acquaintance. For the most part conservative, yet some of the notable results of philological and historical inquiry are welcomed and acknowledged, thus throwing new light upon the sacred text.

Southern Methodist Review

Is written by a scholar young indeed in years, but admirably qualified by temperament, religious feeling, and accurate, extensive scholarship for the task. . . . I do not hesitate to say that no worthier piece of sound and sane exegesis has passed beneath my eyes this many a day. . . . I congratulate Eaton & Mains upon the excellent making of a most excellent book, and upon their courage in putting forth a book so distinctly modern in tone, but with so sane and cautious a conserving of the whole word of God.

The Church School Journal

This commentary by Dr. Eiselen is specially adapted to the needs of busy pastors, teachers in Bible classes and institutes, in Sunday schools, and for all others who seek to understand the so-called Minor Prophets, their message, the times in which they lived, and the spiritual truth revealed. No work on the Minor Prophets is better adapted than this for popular use. And yet the critical student will find this work equal to the best, for whatever light has been shed on the Sacred Word by specialists has here been focused by an expert hand, so that in every respect this commentary is abreast of the foremost scholarship. It is really a great work and will be eminently useful.

—W. L. Alexander

Of the numerous popular and portable commentaries which have appeared, this is undoubtedly the best.
