Spotlight on Old Testament commentaries

Spotlight on Old Testament commentaries

3rd Aug 2022

The spotlight today is on the Old Testament commentaries we offer in our Newport Commentary Series, all by Baptist men. Hardcover, bound in black cloth vellum with colored dust-jackets.

An Exposition of the First Book of Moses called Genesis, by John Gill 

An Exposition of Deuteronomy 33, by William Parkinson

An Exposition of the Book of Psalms - Volume 1 and 2, by Samuel Eyles Pierce 

The Genesis commentary is in an easy-to-read format, complete and unabridged from the pen of one of the leading Bible expositors of the eighteenth century. Making skillful use of an extensive acquaintance with Jewish rabbinical literature and other ancient historical writings, John Gill brings before the reader a narrative of uncommon interest, woven within a substantial, reliable exposition of this important book. 836 pages. $32.

The exposition on Deuteronomy 33 is presented both literal and typical. Moses is herein portrayed as a type of Christ, who bestows blessings and appropriate admonitions upon His people for their good and His glory. Parkinson’s expressed desire was that these sermons “in the hand of the Holy Spirit,” might “be instrumental, in comforting believers―in awakening sinners―and in directing inquiring souls to Christ.” 1134 pages. $32. 

What makes Pierce's exposition unique among others on the Psalms is that he views the whole book (not just the "messianic" Psalms), as prophetic of Christ and His Church and expounds each chapter in accordance with this central theme. The result is a spiritually rich, Christ-centered treatise on this favorite Old Testament book. Volume 1: 669 pages. Volume 2: 704 pages. $32.50 each or the set for $60.
