Overview

John Gill was one of the most influential Baptist thinkers and pastors of his day, and all of his writings are contained in this massive 19 volume collection. Known for his expository works on all of Scripture and for compiling a practical book of theology for his congregation, he is most famous for his passionate defense of Calvinism and the sovereignty of God in all situations. In Sermons and Tracts, vol. 3, Gill includes his famous essays, The Doctrine of the Trinity Stated and Vindicated and A Dissertation Concerning the Antiquity of the Hebrew Language, Letters, Vowel-Points, and Accents.

Gill’s writings helped to define and encourage Reformed Baptist thinking in the 18th century. Considered to be the first major Baptist scholar, Gill continues to shape modern Calvinism. Although modern scholars debate about Gill’s role as the father of Baptist hyper-Calvinism, it cannot be denied that at the very least, he was a forerunner to that tradition. During his lifetime, Gill and his church backed the preaching and ministry of George Whitefield. His work represents not only essential eighteenth-century biblical scholarship, but a turning point in Reformed theology.

Gill’s commentaries are still widely used today by laity and pastors, being theologically sound and practical for daily study. Gill makes the Scripture accessible and applicable to the everyday reader, believing that sound doctrine impacts daily life. Containing over 12,000 pages, The Works of John Gill is an essential resource for any student of the Scriptures and of Reformed thinking. Perfect for the general reader, professors, and Bible scholars, these 19 volumes will enlighten, encourage, and stimulate thinking and application. Gill’s writings include everything from exposition, commentary, essays, and a biography to help aid understanding of this prominent man of faith and his works. The Logos edition makes study easy by linking with every Scripture reference to the Bibles in your library.

  • Commentaries, essays, and biography

  • Includes two essays from Gill’s opponents
His doctrinal and practical writings will live, and be admired, and be a standing blessing to posterity, when their opposers are forgotten, or only remembered by the refutations he has given them. While true religion and sound learning have a single friend remaining [. . .], the works and name of Gill will be precious and revered.

For good, sound, massive, sober sense in commenting, who can excel Gill?

Charles Spurgeon

Taking its place among the truly famous theologies of this period, it deserves a niche in all representative collections of systems of theology. His mastery of ancient language and ancient writings, as well as of the Scriptures, is reflected not only in his theology but in his expositions.

John Rippon was born in 1751 in England. He was an English Baptist clergyman and when Gill died in 1771, Rippon took over his church. He is most famous for publishing a hymnal entitled A Selection of Hymns from the Best Authors. He died in 1836.

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Deist thinker Anthony Collins’ treatise on reason and free-thinking caused a theological and philosophical commotion when it was first published in 1724. Promoting reason as a valid way to determine truth, Collins criticizes all churches for not legitimatizing critical thinking. John Gill wrote The Prophecies of the Old Testament in response to Collin’s arguments. This edition features the 1724 printing.

 

Anthony Collins was born in 1676 in England. He was a Deist philosopher and died in 1729.

In 1710, clergyman Daniel Whitby published this treatise defending the principles of Arminianism. It elicited a response from John Gill, his The Cause of God and Truth, as well as from Jonathan Edwards, with Freedom of the Will.

Daniel Whitby was born in 1638 and became an Arminian minister and theologian. Famous for his defense of Arminianism, Whitby was one of the first theologians and pastors to promote postmillennialism. He died in 1726.

John Gill was born in 1697 in England. A Baptist clergyman, Gill was also a biblical scholar, learning Latin and Greek by age 11. He was also a fervent Reformed thinker, holding to the Five Points of Calvinism. Gill is considered by many to be the father of hyper-Calvinism. He was a preacher at the Strict Baptist Church for fifty–one years, which later became the Metropolitan Tabernacle, pastorate of Charles Spurgeon. Because of his considerable scholarship, Gill was given an honorary doctorate by the University of Aberdeen in 1748. He is most known for being the author of definitive academic works, including, The Doctrine of the Trinity Stated and Vindicated, The Cause of God and Truth, and A Body of Doctrinal Divinity, all of which are included in this collection. Gill died in 1771.

    I, too, have been waiting for years for Gill's works to finally be available on Logos. It's disappointing to see this publication lag while those of heretics like NT Wright flourish. I'll continue to use the online resources until Logos finally kicks this into gear. His commentaries have helped me understand much of the immense depth that I can so easily gloss over in the Scriptures. Eph 4:8-15

    Got the commentary, must say it's really great! But.. The commentatries lack the clear layout of the free version (https://www.dropbox.com/s/50z77lbnq6x5pmz/Gill%20-%20Whiole.docx) but the official Logos one has hebrew, better references to talmud, bible verses etc. Paying more attention on layout (like a newline on eacht verse + bols-italic text for the verse text) would make this bleeding edge version fantastic!

    For those as disappointed as I in regards to the speed at which this project is gathering interest, some great Logos users have taken it upon themselves to create a personal version of Gill's commentaries, and they have given it to us for free: http://community.logos.com/forums/t/63469.aspx Some of the links are dead/broken, but the link to the Dropbox at the end of the forum should work. I used it less than a couple of weeks ago.

    Logos - please take note - Gill's writings were so highly esteemed in the 19th century, William Cathcart, when categorizing ministries of Baptists in his Baptist Encyclopedia said: ‎Dr. John Gill was the author of a commentary on the Old and New Testaments, in nine quarto volumes...It is the richest treasury of Biblical and Oriental learning and of gospel truth which exists in the form of a commentary..."Gill's Body of Divinity" and his other theological works are invaluable...‎Dr. Gill's "Antiquity of the Hebrew Language, Letters, Vowel Points, and Accents" has been properly represented " as a masterly effort of profound research, which would have .shown Dr. Gill to be a prodigy of learning, of reading, and of literature had he never published a syllable on any other subject."* *Cathcart, W.

    John Gill's writings are the only reason I still use Libronix. He was a master commentator and a faithful and loving pastor. Augustus Toplady was a good friend and frequent visitor to his church. To me the omission of Gill's writings is Logos biggest weakness, their second is a lack of great hymnals.
