Christian Workers' Commentary on the Old and New Testaments



Author:Gray, James (1851-1935)
Description:James Gray, president of the Moody Bible Institute from 1904-34, hoped that this commentary could serve to educate the Christian laity. “Fundamental to any first- hand knowledge of the Bible is the reading of the Holy Book itself,” he writes in the introduction. He makes clear that his commentary, if it has any value, should kindle a desire in its readers to study the Bible itself more deeply on their own. He suggests that people use the commentary in adult Bible classes, expository preaching, and family devotions. Today, readers can still use Gray’s work as he intended, but one can also study it as an historical piece, particularly as a look into early 20th century Evangelical biblical hermeneutics.
