About William Evans
William Evans was born January 1, 1870 in Liverpool, England, to George Evans. He died in 1950, in California. On June 20, 1889, when he was 19, he immigrated to the United States, from Liverpool.
William Evans was a New York journalist with a very comfortable salary. He heard D.L. Moody preach in New York City on Luke 5. Moody challenged young people to give themselves to Christian service, and suddenly looked down at William Evans and pointedly said, “Young man, I mean you.” Afterwards Moody found Evans and told him that somehow God had told him that He was calling Evans to service. Evans mentioned his good salary, and Moody told him to pack up his trunk and go to Chicago, not worrying about the money.
William Evans became the first graduate of Moody Bible Institute in 1892, two years after it was dedicated.
Dr. Evans was an unusually accomplished man. He pastored several churches and wrote over 50 books. He memorized the entire King James Version of the Bible as well as the New Testament of the American Standard Version. Dr. Evans also authored over fifty books.
About The Book of the Pentateuch
This commentary covers Genesis through Deuteronomy. Evans spends a great deal of time on Genesis. This module contains thorough Book comments that you should not forget to read. Deuteronomy's book comments contain a thorough explanation of Evans' view of the dispensations. Evans' goal was to write a commentary on the entire Bible but he did not complete it. His other commentaries include: The Gospels and Book of Acts and Romans and I, II Corinthians. I may include these volumes in this Evan's module at a later date. The commentary tab name is: "Evans, W".
It is the purpose of this volume, as of those to follow in the series “Through the Bible Book by Book,” to present the contents of the English Bible in a popular and practical as well as an authoritative manner. There has been continual reference made to the original Hebrew in the preparation of the matter composing these books of the Pentateuch, although the reader is not confronted and confused by the appearance of the Hebrew text on the page. For this reason it is hoped that the exposition will appeal to both minister and laymen, it being simple and yet deep, deep and yet simple.
Genesis has received a much fuller treatment than any other of the four books. The reason is obvious. Genesis holds a more important place. It is the seed-plot of the whole Bible. It contains in seed and germ all the great truths developed in all the books that follow it. Genesis is the book of beginnings in a very real sense. Again, certain events are passed over in the exposition if they have been dealt with in a preceding book. If any new features are emphasized in the second account reference is made to this addition.
Much time and care have been devoted to the synopsis preceding each book. It should be carefully studied before taking up the more minute exposition. Time thus spent will be well rewarded by a better understanding of the contents of the book under consideration. This initial volume of the series is sent out with the earnest prayer that God will through its pages lead the reader into a deeper and more intelligent understanding of the sacred Scriptures which are able to make wise unto salvation.
