The Preacher's Complete Homiletical Commentary has been a favorite of those in ministry for over a century. The 35 volumes in this highly regarded work were written for preachers by preachers, and were edited by Joseph S. Exell.
Exell is one of the most respected biblical editors of the past 150 years. He was editor of The Pulpit Commentary and The Biblical Illustrator. (also available in Wordsearch). His third great work was the Preacher's Complete Homiletical Commentary. Exell included the works of the best scholars and preachers available in this set.
For every chapter of the Bible, this commentary offers a section on preaching themes, which are organized topically, conceptually, and chronologically. Helpful preaching notes are provided throughout. Furthermore, you'll get thousands of pages of:
- Detailed illustrations suitable for devotional study and preaching
- Helps with application of Scripture for the listener and reader
- Suggestive and explanatory commentary
- Theological outlines of Bible passages
- Expository notes
- Sketches and relevant quotes
- Brief critical notes on chapters
The Preacher's Complete Homiletical Commentary is an exhaustive supply of well-organized, practical material that you will find easy to use when assembling sermons and lessons of your own. For example, the book of Job contains some of the most challenging Hebrew text in the Old Testament. Exell pauses along the way to consider Hebrew words and phrases. He explains how each has been translated and cites dozens of scholars who have studied these words before him, and why they settled on a particular translation.
