Product Details

One of the most reliable and often consulted commentaries of the last 100 years is The Pulpit Commentary by H.D.M. Spence and Joseph S. Exell.

The Pulpit Commentary covers all 66 Books of the Bible and offers a detailed verse-by-verse study. Each Bible passage is given expository treatment that places each Scripture within its geographical and cultural context. Additional exegetical/critical resources are provided for each book, giving you more ideas for preaching, teaching, and personal application. This in-depth commentary brings together three key elements for better preaching:

  • Exposition—with thorough verse-by-verse commentary of every verse in the Bible.
  • Homiletics—with the "framework" or the "big picture" of the text.
  • Homilies—with four to six sermons sample sermons from various authors.

One unique feature that sets The Pulpit Commentary apart from others is the focus it places on preaching. For each passage discussed, The Pulpit Commentary gives you sermon outlines to help you prepare your own sermon. Plus, it gives you short sermons written by many different authors for every passage. You'll be amazed how helpful this is to conceptualizing your own sermon.

All in all, The Pulpit Commentary has over 22,000 pages and 95,000 entries from a total of 23 volumes. A must have for any preacher or teacher of God's Word.

  • Critical Reviews

    The Pulpit Commentary is a mine of suggestive matter for preachers and teachers in church and school. It has maintained, within the scope and limits of its conception, a high level of excellence, and this set is fully up to the standard.
    The Quarterly Review
    This commentary bids fair to take a conspicuous place among the ever-multiplying aids to the study of the Holy Scriptures. It will revive the great work of Lange, and will far exceed the Speaker's Commentary in the bulk and fullness of its material. The peculiarity of the Pulpit Commentary is that it offers special assistance to the preacher: first by giving him a critical and exegetical exposition of the text of Scripture, and then providing him with succinct and helpful directions as to the preachable aspects of the chapter and paragraph already explained.
    Evangelical Magazine and Missionary Chronicle
    The Pulpit Commentary is a treasury of truth! Here the Bible expositor receives the benefit of extensive research from exegetical representatives of the past. This resource will encourage your resolve to preach through the Bible. I heartily recommend it!
    Dr. Franklin L. Kirksey, Pastor, Author of Sound Biblical Preaching: Giving the Bible a Voice
