Peake, Arthur S. - Commentary on the Bible
Whole Bible Textual Criticism
Peake, Arthur S.
9.x - 10.x
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.
