Charles Spurgeon's advice to aspiring preachers was, "Read admirable commentaries." Indeed, it was Spurgeon who first drew up a definitive list of Bible commentaries that every preacher and student of God's Word should own.
Now classic works on all 66 books of the Bible--including most of the ones Spurgeon recommended--have been collected into this one exciting volume. Though the language has been edited where necessary for the modern reader, the teachings of these master preachers have been preserved, as well as the dignity of their original prose. From John Calvin on Genesis to Matthew Henry on Revelation, you will find the biblical insights of many of Christian history's leading figures within these pages--at a fraction of the cost of buying these commentaries individually. More than an aid to preachers, this is an essential resource for any serious Christian's library.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Classic Bible Commentary: An Essential Collection of History's Finest Commentaries in One Volume?
An Edifying Collection Mar 4, 2006
This collection consists of a short commentary for each book of the Bible, written by a variety of long-dead preachers and theologians ranging from John Calvin to John Wesley. The diversity of contributors means disputes can be found throughout, and no one could possibly agree with every view set forth. But the book as a whole is edifying and quite useful.
It must be noted that much of the book's content is already available online for free -- the (many) commentaries by Wesley and by Matthew Henry, for instance, along with the Jamieson/Fausett/Brown commentaries. But not all of it is online -- J.C. Ryle's commentary on Luke is wonderful, and (so far as I know) not easily located elsewhere. Before you buy this book, review the table of contents and compare it with what's available online and in your personal library.
