Scholarly and practical, this volume offers rich and inspiring expositions. Preachers with a working knowledge of New Testament Greek will appreciate the insights and thorough explanations. Throughout, the expositions are based on Eadie's precise exegesis of Greek words and phrases. According to the New Schaff-Herzog Encyclopedia of Religious Knowledge, "These commentaries of John Eadie arew marked by candor and clearness as well as by an evangelical unction not common in works of the kind."
John Eadie (1810-1876) was a prominent Scottish Seccession and United Presbyterian Church minister and New Testament scholar. He was appointed Professor of Biblical Literature in the United Presbyterian Divinity Hall in 1843. His widely acclaimed commentaries on Paul's epistles prompted his appointment to the New Testament committee engaged in preparing the Revised Version of the Bible in English.
