Overview

Alexander MacLaren (1826-1910) is ranked among the expert expositors of the nineteenth century. His life was passionately devoted to the study of Scripture and to the pulpit ministry. His career was marked by a faithful commitment to both his church community and to the integrity of the Baptist tradition. His writings and reputation were world renown, and his skill with the English language and ability to handle the biblical languages has inspired students of Holy Scripture for decades. Even to this day, MacLaren is considered to be a prime exemplar of expository preaching.

The sermons included in the thirty-two volumes of Expositions of Holy Scripture cover sixty-four of the sixty-six books included in the Protestant canon of Scripture. The 1,500+ sermons are arranged in canonical order making this collection an expository commentary on most of the Bible. MacLaren's unique ability to handle the original languages of Scripture and his skilled writing style draw the reader deep into the life of Holy Scripture.

Praise for the Print Edition

His matchless discourses are the fruit of the most exact scholarship and spiritual enthusiasm.

—A. T. Robertson, Grammar of the Greek New Testament in the Light of Historical Research

He possesses in an eminent degree the true expository genius.... He is a truly great preacher, and his sermons always demand careful attention…

—John Edwards

As wonderful as his gifts was the use he made of them. They were all disciplined for one purpose. He toiled terribly that he might be an effective preacher.

—W. Robertson Nicoll

As an expository preacher none of them equaled Maclaren of Manchester, and no other sermons were so widely read the world around.

—F. B. Meyer

Dr. MacLaren's theological attitude is well known; here it is frankly avowed and consistently maintained. Not afraid of the epithet "old-fashioned," he takes his stand upon the conservative view of Scripture; and, interpreting it upon the old lines, upholds and expounds in their orthodox significance what he conceives to be the fundamental elements of the faith.

—David Frew, Review of Theology and Philosophy, 1906

About Alexander MacLaren

Alexander MacLaren (1826-1910) was a Baptist preacher in England. He was educated at Stepney College, London, where he studied Hebrew and Greek and learned the discipline of expository preaching. He presided over Portland Chapel in Southhampton for twelve years, Union Chapel in Manchester for forty-five years and was twice elected as President of the Baptist Union. His ministerial career spanned nearly sixty-five years from 1842–1905. MacLaren's passion for the pulpit ministry was only surpassed by his pursuit of a life hid with God in Christ. He was revered by all who heard him speak and has served as an exemplar of expository preaching for all who have come after him.
