A Critical Commentary and Paraphrase on the Old and New Testaments and Apocrypha is a compilation of work from distinguished seventeenth- and eighteenth-century biblical scholars Simon Patrick, Daniel Whitby, William Lowth, Moses Lowman, and Richard Arnold. Written primarily by Anglican churchmen (save for Lowman, a nonconformist) from 1694 to 1752, Critical Commentary carries the pious, yet objective tone of the Age of Reason and addresses challenges the church faced during the Enlightenment. Recognized as some of the most enduring English Bible commentary, these works were first published together as a complete commentary on the Bible and Apocrypha in 1810, and were reprinted several times.
