John Trapp’s five-volume commentary, first published in 1649, has been a favorite source of biblical wit and wisdom ever since. Trapp has never lacked an audience, and has been loved by preachers and teachers throughout the years. At times an academic, a pastor, and a soldier, Trapp communicated his wide range of life experience in his unique blend of scholarship, practical counsel, and storytelling. He brings the artistry of the English Renaissance to his biblical commentary, which is as valuable as literature as it is as instruction. Trapp’s distinct personal voice distinguishes this commentary from others, and makes it a timeless classic.
Logos editions of these volumes maintain the charm of Trapp’s original English while enhancing the text for twenty-first century readers. Fully indexed texts, original-language helps, Scripture references on mouseover, and a wealth of other easily searchable commentaries, encyclopedias, and dictionaries connect you with the Bible and other resources like never before.

Praise for John Trapp’s Commentary
Trapp is my especial companion and treasure; I can read him when I am too weary for anything else. Trapp is salt, pepper, mustard, vinegar, and all the other condiments. Put him on the table when you study, and when you have your dish ready, use him by way of spicing the whole thing.
