Since its publication in the late nineteenth-century, Jamieson, Fausset, and Brown’s Commentary Critical and Explanatory on the Whole Bible—also known as the JFB—has earned a reputation as a trustworthy, conservative, practical, and altogether invaluable Bible study tool. C.H. Spurgeon once noted of the commentary that “It contains so great a variety of information that if a man had no other exposition he would find himself at no great loss if he possessed and used it diligently.”

This lightly condensed version of the classic work offers rich insights into Scripture from the perspectives of authors that were both first-rate scholars and everyday pastors. After informative introductions to each book, the JFB works verse by verse, providing exposition of every chapter in the Bible. The commentary is based on the original languages without being overly technical, so laypeople as well as pastors and students will benefit from the sound scholarship and apt insights.

Note that this is a condensed version of the classic six volume work, A Commentary, Critical, Experimental, and Practical, on the Old and New Testaments.

    The unabridged 6 volume version is on Community Bid! If you really what this resource, go there and bid on the full 6 volumes. The production price is projected to only be $40 for a great whole bible commentary!

    Yes, it appears that the commentary included in the NASB Bible Library and certain Logos software editions is a condensed version of this unabridged edition, according to the product description of said commentary. I did not know that previously.

    It is part of the NAS Bible Lib for 29.99.

  9. Robert Daniel Bell
    This must be the abridged edition. There is little information about what this really is. Page numbers are not included. What you expect is the Eerdmans edition of 1945, but that is not what you get!

    Price seems to indicate it's the 3-volume unabridged version, but it isn't. I wish that were available.
