Overview

Lange’s Commentary on the Holy Scriptures offers enduring commentary on the entire Bible that combines scholarly precision with rich application. Originally edited by Peter Lange in Germany, Philip Schaff supervised the English translation and contributed substantially to the American edition which is regarded as the definitive version of these classic commentaries. Also included in this collection is the important volume covering the Old Testament Apocrypha, often left out of more recent reprints. Complete with comprehensive introductions and critical notes, as well as its acclaimed exegetical, theological, and homiletical commentary, this standard series continues to be a great guide for pastors, scholars, students, and interested laity.

In the Logos editions, these valuable volumes are enhanced by amazing functionality. Scripture and ancient-text citations link directly to English translations and original-language texts, and important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. With Lange’s classic commentaries in your library, the Passage Guide, Sermon Starter, and Topic Guide will bring up the relevant sections in a click, so you spend more time studying and less time searching. Tablet and mobile apps let you study on the go. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.

Praise for the Print Edition

The volumes greatly differ in excellence, yet none could be spared. We have nothing equal to them as a series.

C. H. Spurgeon

. . . we unhesitatingly commend the Commentary of Dr. Lange, which is, in brief, a vast reservoir in which is collected an immense amount of material for the use of students and all intelligent, educated Christians.

Putnam’s Magazine

It promises to be a complete and useful commentary and will prove especially valuable to ministers. It contains critical annotations of the text and its translation, and a threefold commentary, exegetical, doctrinal, and homiletical. Under these three heads the text is viewed under every aspect. It forms almost an exegetical library by itself.

About Johann Peter Lange

Johann Peter Lange 1802–1884) was a Prussian Calvinist theologian and biblical commentator. He studied at Bonn University. After his ordination he pastored Reformed churches until 1841. He gained the theological world’s attention through two publications. First, he wrote articles in Evangelische Kirchenzeitung. Appearing between 1830 and 1840, those articles revealed his commitment to orthodoxy. Second, he wrote a powerful criticism of the view of Jesus presented by D. F. Strauss in Leben Jesu (1835). Lange’s book, published at Duisburg in 1836, was an attempt to show that the portrayal of Jesus in the Gospels is a reliable record and not, as Strauss held, "mythical." In 1841 Lange became professor of theology at Zurich, a position originally offered to Strauss. Lange was a prolific author whose writings included hymns. His name is primarily known in America through the translation edited by Philip Schaff of his Theologischhomiletisches Bibelwerk (25 Vols.). That work, intended to help preachers prepare sermons, comments on the whole Bible. Lange’s evangelicalism was of the school known as “Vermittlungstheologie,” which attempted to combine the emphases of the Protestant Reformation with the proved achievements of modern science.
