Peake's Commentary, first published in 1919 as A Commentary on the Bible, was written by 61 authors and edited by Arthur Samuel Peake. A few of the others authors include George G. Findlay, Samuel Holmes, and James Moffatt.

In 1937, Peake's Commentary was republished with a 40 page supplement, edited by A. J. Grieve. Between 1939 and 1960, the work was republished 10 more times.

(Note on the 1937 version vs. the 1962 version: In 1962 Matthew Black and Harold Henry Rowley rewrote Peake's Commentary. But this e-Sword module is the 1937 edition edited by Peake, not the 1962 rewritten version).

Peake's one volume commentary covers the entire Bible, with an emphasis on textual criticism, interpretation, history and theology from the nineteenth century. Some of the introductory passages teach liberal textual criticism. For example, the Genesis introduction interprets the creation account as non-literal and more poetical or allegorical. While fundamentalists disagree with this and similar analysis, the core text remains quite profitable. As with any commentary, you should understand the author may disagree with you on some issues and agree on others.

The 40 page supplement edited by A. J. Grieve is included in the Reference Library module. Topics include “The Language of the New Testament,” “The Roman Empire in the First Century,” “The Holy Land,” “Weights, Measures, Money, and Time,” “Contemporary Jewish Religion,” and many more.


Thank you Josh for the new commentary and reference modules - they're pretty impressive.  One thing that stands out immediately about the REFX module is the font.  It seems much easier to read than some of the other modules.  My eyes are getting old so they don't track the lines as good as they once did -- this font change is a blessing.

 

Thanks again for your faithful labors Josh.  God Bless, lg

What should have been said about this commentary, this is it VERY LIBERAL and in many places HERETICAL in its teachings

From the introduction to Genesis we read: "Apart from internal inconsistencies there are intrinsic incredibilities. That the story of the Deluge is not unvarnished history is shown in the Introduction to it. 

The narrative of creation cannot be reconciled with our present knowledge except by special pleading which verges on dishonesty...

Much in Genesis 1-11 is of mythical origin; but it has been purified in various degrees by the religious genius of Israel and the spirit of revelation.", etc, etc.

 

 

I cannot understand WHY such works that attack the Inspiration, Infallibility, Inerrancy, and the Authority of the Word of God are even published? Either the Book of Genesis, especially chapters 1-11 are the Word of God and FULLY Inspired by the Holy Spirit, "and is profitable for teaching, for rebuking, for correcting, for training in righteousness", as 2 Timothy 3:16 says, or, it is a LIE. Its that simple. Its goes back to the devil when tempting Adam and Even, when he challenged God's Authority and Honesty, when he said, "hath God said?". IF Bible Support are going to make such works available for use, then they MUST warn those who will use such works which can truly damage one's spiritual health! Like no time before the Word of God, The Holy Bible is being attacked, and sadly also by many who claim to be Bible-believing "evangelicals"

I would like you to actually post some examples of his liberalism and what you regard as heresy, but post your findings in a blog, or in the Theology Discussion forum on this site. Just making a comment as you have done above really says nothing at all and tends to show a very disgrunted person that is making a lot of noise. So, with that, write a review, quoting any errors/heresy that you find, so that we are able to make a proper informed assessment of this book. But, like I suggested, do it as a blog or post it in the Theology Discussion forum.

 

Blessings,

I added the text below to the description. Every commentary is merely an opinion. I didn't realize people would think a commentary was on the same level as the Bible itself. I think to use Bible study software in general, you have to be capable of critical thinking and critically evaluate what you are reading. You may agree with some issues but disagree on others. If you demand agreement on every theological issue, then we might have between 0 and 1 commentaries on the website. :)

Hi Josh, we are not talking about where Bible believing Christians might differ on points of "theology", like, did Jesus die for everyone without exception, or distinction, as in the Limited Atonement debate. What I pointed out about this commentary edited by Peake and others, is that it directly challenges the Truth about the Teachings of the Holy Bible. Surely it is critical for anyone who makes available as done on this website, works by those who are NOT true believers in the Bible as the Infallible, Inerrant, Authoritative Word of God, that a warning of its contents be made known. When you get the account of Creation being not only questioned by also attacked for what it plainly teaches as FACT, then one MUST warn others that this is dangerous. We live in an age where the attacks on the Holy Bible are the greatest ever, and by many who would have us believe that they are God-fearing, Bible-believing "evangelicals". Like Dr Bernard Ramm, in his book, "Christian View of Science and Scripture", state the following: "If the differences between the sciences and the Bible were to grow to a very large number, and were of the most serious nature, it would be questionable if we could retain faith in Scripture. True we may believe some of the Bible in spite of science, but certainly the situation would change if we believed all of the Bible in spite of science" (page, 29). Dr Ramm is still considered by many Christians to be a great "evangelical", even though he openly attacks the Authority of the Holy Bible. Clark Pinnock is another example. We must safe-gurd what Paul calls, "the hearts of the simple" (Romans 16:18)

 

 

I sincerely hope e-sword will continue to admit different points of view concerning the Bible; and in the spirit of the two Great Commandments we will work our own salvation -thanks to God´s infinite Grace, manifested in Christ.
