Spotlight on New Testament commentaries

20th Jul 2022

Today's spotlight is on the New Testament commentaries we offer in our Newport Commentary Series, all by Baptist men. They are hardcover, bound in black cloth vellum with colored dust-jackets. 

An Exposition of the Gospel According to Matthew, by C. H. Spurgeon; An Exposition of the Parable of the Sower in Matthew 13, by Samuel Stennett; An Exposition of the Gospel According to John, by John Gill; An Exposition of the Epistle to the Ephesians, by Robert E. Pattison; An Exposition of the Epistle to the Hebrews, by James A. Haldane

This Passmore and Alabaster 1893 edition of Spurgeon's commentary on Matthew has been reprinted along with additional letters and other interesting information. 384 pages. 70 illustrations. $29.50.

This edition of Samuel Stennett's Discourses on the Parable of the Sower, first published in 1785, has been completely re-typset and includes the memoir of Stennett by Joseph Jenkins originally published in John Rippon's Baptist Annual Register in 1796. 224 pages. $21. 

Gill’s references to the Apocrypha have been cited in full, and his numerous references to his notes in the earlier Gospels and elsewhere have been included in this commentary on John as endnotes, making this a self-contained work. 742 pages. $29. 

Robert E. Pattison (1800-1874) brought years of pastoral experience as well as theological teaching to bear in writing this commentary on Ephesians, “his only literary monument.” First published in Boston in 1859, C. H. Spurgeon counted this work among the very best on this epistle. 264 pages. $25. 

This volume by the esteemed Scottish Baptist James Alexander Haldane (1768-1851) deserves a place among the finest commentaries on Hebrews. Haldane had originally penned this work with a view towards writing a fuller exposition, but died before he could complete the task. Nonetheless these “notes of an intended exposition” alone comprise a full and rich name of Biblical instruction. 424 pages. $26.
