A Practical Commentary on Holy Scripture is in fact a Scriptural history spanning from creation to the Apostolic Church. The intent is primarily catechetical and the work provides an exposition of the basic doctrines of the Church through a commentary on the Biblical narrative. In each section it also provides a moral exhortation to the application of the doctrine in question. The work was and remains immensely popular, going through multiple editions and remaining in print to the present.
With the Logos edition of A Practical Commentary on Holy Scripture, every word is essentially a link. Scripture references are linked directly to the original language texts and English Bible translations in your library. For every word—in English, Greek, Hebrew, Latin, or any language—you can double-click on that word, and your digital library will automatically search your lexicons for a match. That gives you instant access to a wealth of technical linguistic and etymological data, along with tools for accurate exegesis and interpretation.
