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.
