Tab Name:

In Through the Bible Day by Day, F. B. Meyer shares his insights in small sections that correspond to a daily reading from the scriptures. Each of his comments are written with a focus on application in the reader's daily life. He also includes an introduction, outline, and review questions of each Bible book (see the e-Sword Book Comments). This 7 volume set contains more than 1520 pages for the printed edition.

The commentary is devotional and/or "how to apply the Bible to your life" in nature. The comments are concise but nearly every verse in the Bible is covered, with the exception of 1 Chronicles and parts of Numbers.

There is need everywhere for the cultivation of the habit of reading some portion of God’s Word each day. Such reading should be consecutive, for only thus can continuous interest be maintained. It may also be greatly helped by an interpreter, who will explain what is obscure as well as suggest applications of the message to the daily life.

To meet such need this series of seven volumes provides an arrangement of the books of the Bible in daily portions, with concise devotional comments. It includes all portions of the Bible most suitable for daily reading, either individually or in family groups.

As a commentary on the whole Bible, these volumes will be found valuable because they omit points of merely scholarly interest and fix attention upon the central message of each passage and its application to daily needs. There are frequent references to other parts of Scripture, especially from Old Testament truths to their New Testament fulfillment and interpretation.

Mr. Meyer’s life-long experience in interpreting the Bible to the common people makes him pre-eminently fitted for this service-a crowning one in his world-wide ministry by voice and pen.

Introductions and outlines are provided for each Bible book. Review questions have been added at appropriate points, to enable readers to sum up and better preserve in memory what they have learned. The illustrations, selected from paintings of Bible scenes by modern artists, aid in the interpretation of the passages which they portray.

It is hoped that these volumes will prove of much value to Sunday-school teachers and adult scholars; will promote profitable Bible reading in connection with both family and private devotions; and will everywhere deepen a love for and an intelligent acquaintance with the one Book which can provide a fresh and helpful message for the needs of each new day.

Daily Reading of God’s Word
The Bible is full of God’s wisdom. It is the Word of God. We must read it not only with our head, but with our heart. An analysis of its contents is good and desirable; but when all this is done, we need to allow time for the inner wisdom, power and grace which are stored in the Book, to soak into our inner consciousness. Therefore, for some reasons, it is better to have a shorter portion for daily study, to give us time to get all the juice and marrow out of what we read.

This is the method followed in this system. Busy people, students, commercial men, Sunday-school workers and older scholars, soldiers and sailors, people on the hills and on the prairies, living on the edge of the great tides of human activity, will find these passages, selected for daily reading, ample to furnish a daily meal of truth, and yet deep and wide enough for profound inquiry and interest.
It has always seemed to me that the true way to know the Bible is to read it through. It is only so that we can follow the unveiling of the divine purpose, from the Dawn of Genesis to the Perfect Day of the divine writings of John. It is only so that we can obtain a connected view of the wide scope of Revelation. To read in different, unconnected passages, now of Poetry, now of History, now of Doctrine, prevents the mind from getting proper focus. We are apt by that method to concentrate on a few familiar passages, instead of listening to all that God has spoken to men’s hearts. There is, probably, nothing more vital to an accurate knowledge of the Bible than the good old practice of reading it thoughtfully and steadily through with such brief notes as this volume provides.

But let it always be remembered that the profoundest knowledge of the Word comes from the illuminating grace of the Holy Spirit. Ask Him to unlock and unfold its sacred mysteries. Ask Him to reveal the glories of our Lord in every chapter. Ask Him to enable you to “read, mark, learn and inwardly digest.” Ask Him, finally, to enable you to become not a forgetful hearer or reader, but a doer of the Word. See to it that your reading is combined with the faith that claims of God the fulfillment, in your own experience, of all He has promised. No prayer, therefore, is more salutary, as you open your Bible, morning by morning, than the familiar old words of the psalmist: “Open thou mine eyes, that I may behold wondrous things out of thy law.”

—F.B. Meyer

About F.B. Meyer
Frederick Brotherton Meyer (1847–1929). Baptist pastor, Bible conference speaker and writer. Born in London, Meyer was convinced from his childhood that he would be a preacher.

While at Priory Street Church in 1873, Meyer befriended Dwight L. Moody and Ira D. Sankey, who had arrived in England to minister but had found that the two men who had invited them had died. Invited to York, Moody found Meyer very helpful in getting his campaign started. This friendship resulted in Moody inviting Meyer to America in 1891, the first of twelve trips. He spoke at the East Northfield Summer Conference for two weeks and proved to be so popular that he was asked to give post-conference addresses. In one meeting at Northfield, J. Wilbur Chapman was touched by Meyer’s preaching and testified later to a life-changing commitment made there.

Prior to his coming to the U.S., his written works had received much attention. His biographies of Bible characters gained great popularity, as did his expositional and devotional works.



Thanks Josh, as always you are a true blessing from the Lord :)
Perhaps F.B. Meyer could be regarded as one of the greatest Bible teachers of his time. Some have placed him in the league of C.H. Spurgeon as the "prince of Bible expositors." Whether he or not he could be regarded in this light, having read some of his works in the STEP reader, I know we are in for a real treat of exceptional Biblical wisdom in this Commentary.

I have said this before with regards to the 49 volume set of the Expositor's Bible that works such as this never become redundant. And so it is such with the works by F.B. Meyer.

I love great Christian literary works by such men of God which has stood the test of time. The wealth of knowledge they have, and the uncompromising truth they hold to gives attests to the credibility of these men of God.

You know, Josh, I think I know where you are from in your walk in Christ when you put up works like these. I praise God for you, and thank him for men of God like you whose desire is to bring the best out of us through these wonderful works.

Stephen (Php 1:21).
Oh great! I answered my own question, or God did I should say:) I was wondering what may be a good commentary for me and I found this writing about Meyer. I appreciate so much the time people are taking here to help others to study God's Word. You were speaking of me when you wrote:

To read in different, unconnected passages, now of Poetry, now of History, now of Doctrine, prevents the mind from getting proper focus. We are apt by that method to concentrate on a few familiar passages, instead of listening to all that God has spoken to men’s hearts.

I'm going to download Meyers volumes now. I am hoping I can find Meyer's biographies of bible characters as well. That sounds excellent, Denise, a sister in Christ

Thanks Brother. It is very useful. and help me to rightly dividing the Word of God.

Many Many thanks Josh!
