Commenting and Commentaries: Lectures Addressed to the Students of the Pastor's College, Metropolitan Tabernacle : with a List of the Best Biblical Commentaries and Expositions : Also, a Lecture on Eccentric Preachers : a Complete List of All of Spurgeon's Sermons, with the Scripture Texts Used

Front Cover
Sheldon, 1876 - Bible - 324 pages
Spurgeon's classic lecture series is paired with a carefully annotated catalogue of Biblical commentaries available in his day. This book is invaluable both to students of the Bible and pastors looking to expand their library of scriptural reference works. Spurgeon lists commentaries of specific Biblical books as well as the whole Bible--many of which are still in use today. Especially helpful are the crisp and instructive comments Spurgeon attaches to each reference work in his catalogue. This exhaustive listing of secondary resources is both a compendium of useful knowledge and a revealing (and sometimes amusing) look into the mind of the great preacher.
