KIRKUS REVIEW

The second of this twelve volume commentary on the Bible confirms the judgement of critics who hailed the appearance of the first volume a few months ago as an epochmaking event in the field of religious publication. We have had many scholarly commentaries on the Bible and many popular expositions of Scripture, but in these volumes the fruits of scholarship and the interpretations of Scripture passages are brought together in a remarkably convenient and valuable arrangement. Particularly commendable is the arrangement whereby the text in the authorized and revised versions is followed closely on the same page by an exegesis and an exposition of the passage. This volume covers the Gospels of and John. It includes contributions by Professors S. MacLean Gilmour of Queen's College, Walter Russell Bowie of the Episcopal Theological Seminary in Virginia, John Knox and Paul Scherer of Union Theological Seminary, Dr. George A. Buttrick of the Madison Avenue Presbyterian Church, New York, Principal Wilbert F. Howard of Handsworth College, Birmingham, England, and Dr. Arthur J. Gossip of Glasgow, Scotland. Most preachers and many Bible teachers will regard this as an indispensable addition to their working libraries, the importance of which is not likely to be superseded for many years.
