About The e-Sword Edition
Dr. Dave (www.doctordavet.com) and his team painstakingly created e-Sword Topic files of The Expositor's Bible (one topic file per volume). BibleSupport.com converted the 49 topic files into a single commentary for easier reference. The end result is a 50 megabyte commentary file with thousands of pages of reference material.

This is not a perfect project because not every volume fit neatly into a book, chapter, or verse commentary. The vast majority of the text did fit acceptably but several volumes like 1 and 2 Chronicles and Luke did not naturally conform to an e-Sword style book, chapter, or verse commentary. In cases such as Luke, BibleSupport.com read each chapter that did not have a scripture label and noted the scriptures the chapter referenced. We then applied the verse references to the commentary. Although this was a sometimes subjective process, for Luke, this seems to have worked well. For 1 and 2 Chronicles, the process was less than perfect.

Nevertheless, we believe that we should not "throw out the baby with the bath water". It's better to have a commentary with most of the text useful and a few volumes that don't fit perfectly than to have no commentary at all! We're proud of the result and thank Dr. Dave's team for making the original topic files, without which this project would not have happened.

We urge you to check the e-Sword Book Comments for more information on certain sections because the Book Comments contain introductory information originally found in the EB volumes. A few Book Comments contain information about the Bible book as a whole (not necessarily introductory information). We also employed Chapter Comments on rare occasion, mostly in Deuteronomy.

About The Expositor's Bible
The Expositor's Bible is one of the most-recognized standards of expository commentaries. It was written by twenty-nine eminent scholars of the day who were also full-time preachers. These writers also represent every important branch of Protestantism. The Expositor's Bible may thus be regarded as an inter-denominational exposition. It conclusively demonstrates the hearty agreement of all thoughtful persons on the profound realities and essentials of the Christian Faith. It shows how this Faith is to be preached with the conviction and persuasiveness which its opulent gospel justly merits.

This notable work was conceived and carried out by that genius among editors, Sir William Robertson Nicoll, C.H., D.D., LL.D. He had an exceptional knowledge of religious and literary, of theological and philosophical, thought. He understood what were the most urgent needs of the church as to spiritual enlightenment, for the better exercise of the Church's mission in advancing the Kingdom of Christ to earth's remotest bounds.

Right here we are met with the welcome aid of The Expositor's Bible. It must be acknowledged that a company of writers of the same caliber and qualifications could hardly be brought together at the present day. Both clergy and laity are here helped to understand the Scriptures as 'profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for instruction which is in righteousness.'
The Bible continues to occupy its place of finality as the supreme Authority on Religion and Morals. This is the basis on which The Expositor's Bible was written.

Some of the prominent authors include:
Alexander MacLaren D.D.
Marcus Dods D.D.
George Gillanders Findlay B.A.
Frederic W. Farrar D.D.
Handley Carr Glyn Moule M.A. D.D.
George Adam Smith D.D.

About the Editor
Sir William Robertson Nicoll was born in Lumsden, Aberdeenshire. He was educated at the University of Aberdeen and graduated in 1870. He studied for the ministry at the Free Church Divinity Hall there until 1874, when he was ordained minister of the Free Church at Dufftown, Banffshire. In 1885 Nicoll was forced to retire from pastoral ministry after an attack of typhoid had badly damaged his lung. In 1886 he moved south to London and began his editorship of The Expositor (1885) and the British Weekly (1886), posts which he held for the rest of his life. He made the British Weekly widely influential, published several religious and secular books, was knighted in 1909, and was made a companion of honor (a prestigious order) two years before his death 1923.

Nicoll was a prolific editor of expository works and left behind a literary legacy that has placed all preachers in his debt. This scholar is rightly remembered for such works as the 50-volumeExpositor's Bible (1888-1905), the 12-volume The Sermon Bible (1888-1893), and the 5-volume Expositor's Greek New Testament (1897-1910), all of which he edited. But none of these surpasses in quality and utility The Expositor's Dictionary of Texts.


This is an excellent set despite the age of it. In fact I would go as far to say that expositional work done by the various authors could be regarded as relevant today.

There have been other similar works done, but none can match the work in these 49 volumes.

4 Stars.

Blessings,
Stephen (Php 1:21).
very good
Does this mean we should delete the files in the Reference Library?
You don't have to delete the files, but if you want to you can. If you leave them in the Reference Library, you can view them through the Reference Library and use the commentary separately.
Thank you for these great books. You have made my study of the Word of God more easy. Thank you.
Excellent, I was trying to collect these books in second hand bookshops but the supply just stopped! I will be able to have all of them to study now, Many Thanks
Can anyone tell me what text is used in the Expositor's Bible (49 volume). Is it the AV or rv?

You don't have to delete the files, but if you want to you can. If you leave them in the Reference Library, you can view them through the Reference Library and use the commentary separately.


could you explain it in simple words for a non-technical follower? -it´s great to have all this prayer-full help at hand.
Hi Josh, Thanks for making this great work available! I thought I'd let you know that there are some whole chapters missing, like, Ezra 8, Nehemiah, 7& 12,, Esther, 2, 5, 6, 8, 10, etc. There may be others. Best wishes, Andy
Not every chapter or verse has a comment in this commentary, unfortunately.
